28 June 2007
We started with a really nice cool day but it soon got humid, although not as hot as the past few days. It rained this afternoon, a nice downpour again that soaked into the ground as fast as it came down and then pooled a bit on top for a short while after the rain stopped. Still very humid now but they say that we will have a very nice day tomorrow in the 70s with low humidity.
The baby birds are sooo cute, I will try to get shots of the other nest tomorrow. I also have shots of a baby robin that I found on the ground the other morning surrounded by my cats with its parents swooping and screaching. I picked it up as it was obviously trying to learn to fly. I put it up in the pine tree on one of the lower branches and mom and dad kept a close eye on it as there was also one of those black/blue birds hovering around waiting to pounce. They were chasing it away constantly. The baby eventually hopped up onto higher branches with more cover and I couldnt see them anymore so I hope that it survivied. I will try to post some of those tomorrow.
My pictures today are of the six yearlings which I desperately need to sell. The large group has all six but Dream is hidden behind the others so I posted a picture of him and Blaze as well. It is hard to take photos of them because they all follow me around in a long line, looks like the pied piper LOL.

They are all going through a height spurt especially Dream. Three of them are already as tall as a lot of our older horses. They are going to be big compared although two of them's Daddy was the stallion that our friend lost recently and he was huge.
A big congratulations to Annette, Tanya and Morgan (I posted pictures last month of Annette and Morgan at a recent show that I shot). They got a World Champion and Two Reserve World Champion awards at the Pinto World Show last week and Morgan got some great placings in large fields in the children's classes.
Well that is it for today. Thanks all for your visits ((((Hugs)))). "See" y'all tomorrow.
