"I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

Fixing Fence and Pasture Mates

This late morning and early afternoon we spent some time down at the pasture beefing up part of the fence. While Aaron pounded in the new posts, I went down the fence line with pliers and wire and attached the barbed wire to the new posts, and also re-attached any that needed it one old ones. The kids played, and ran and helped in turn.

Running through the weeds.

Playing with a cat tail.

BIG HELPER Flora...yes, that is a t-post she is carrying. She said " I am going to help daddy." And did. Such a strong little girl!

Playing in the little stream that runs through part of the pasture.

 Here are a few of Amie's pasture mates:

Maria the Mule...she is rather a sweet thing when she wants to be.

"Loofy" is what Andrew calls Lucy, she is close to 17 hands, and before rescued was neglected and Abused. It is taking time for all of us to be able to touch her. She doesnt have a mean bone in her body, but is very scared. Isn't she just so pretty!

My Sweet Amie. Her registered name is Oscars Sweet Amie, and the sweet part fits! :) Clara is now addicted to riding her, she was the most shy to get up on her.

Missy the Mule

Charlie Horse and Amie playing with a stick.

Amie is very curious and likes to nibble on things...think time...the reflective strip on the back pockets of Aaron's work pants.

Lucy's very large nose....and Aaron feeding her a sugar cube. The girl likes her sugar!
