A Visit From The Mallards

When I opened my front door this morning I was greeted by two Mallards.  There is a small lake about four houses down from mine, so I guess they're just taking a stroll through the neighborhood.  Or maybe word got out that there's always food out at our house for the squirrels and birds.  They did seem to enjoy the bread I tossed to them. 

Can you believe March is almost over?  Time is really passing by quickly!  Hope everyone is enjoying Spring!

Such a cute pair!

He seemed very protective over sweet.

The squirrel was checking to see if he was missing out on anything good.

A Spring Stampede

As we were turning the car around to find a place to park we noticed a little stampede had started.  I had to hurry and start snapping!  I did the best I could considering there are a lot of trees and these horses, cows and calf were cruising!  I couldn't believe that little calf was running with the horses!  Mama cow was trying to catch up with her baby!  We had a blast watching these beautiful animals.

Do you see the calf?  Mama cow is trying to catch up! LOL

They started slowing down.

This is Mama cow and after the stampede she went a trotting over to these horses and she had a lot to say.
We could hear her from across the road!  She wasn't too happy. 
I think she was giving them grief for almost running over her baby.

Spring Surprise

Less than three miles from our home in the city we found these beautiful animals.  I was so excited!  This pasture had been empty for so long, but not anymore. :)  It wasn't easy to park on the side of the road to take these pics, but we managed the best that we could.  

I followed MadSnapper's advice to sit, stare and snap!  I did a lot of snapping, so you will be seeing a lot of horse and cow posts.
Happy Spring Blogland!

Roxanne's 7th Birthday!

Our Roxanne Love had a fabulous birthday celebration!
She turned seven, so she's a big girl now. :)

She didn't even want to wait for us to
finish singing "Happy Birthday".
Can you see her drooling??

Roxanne is a lady, so she did share with her siblings. 
They are spoiled, eating at the table and all, but
no party hats...I'm not that silly!  Ha! Ha!

Treats In The Mail

When these doggy treats arrived in the mail from Texas my furbabies went bonkers!  A BIG thanks to Deb at "My three boys and a bird dog"...  She held a contest and we were fortunate enough to be one of the lucky winners!  And just in time for Roxanne's birthday!  She thought the treats were just for her, but I told her that she must share with her siblings. :) 
You can see here that they were really enjoying Bil-Jac PB-nanas treats.

Today is Roxanne's 7th birthday, but I'll have to post the party pics on Friday. :)
