Cute baby animals
Who doesn’t love a a cute baby animal, of any kind? Everybody loves them, right?
Just down the street from Al’s shop is a big pasture that every spring has several baby horses. Baby animals of every kind are so dang cute, and horses are no exception. I walked down to take some photos the other day, and managed to get a few that were pretty good.
This was a young colt, and boy was he full of it. He was so much fun to watch. I told Al I wanted a pet horse, he said no way.
One day last week I had to take the dogs to the vet. Torrey needed a rabies shot, and Roxy needed a check up. Everybody is fine. Roxy is very healthy for being 10 1/2 years old. The vet loves her. He said to her, “Who is the best Chihuahua, the rough and tumble Chihuahua, that’s who.”
Anyway, since we had to go to town I took them walking on the path beside the river, one of our favorite places. A young robin was on this branch. Obviously too young to fly yet, so his mom was bringing him lunch on the branch. I didn’t get too close, I didn’t want to risk scaring him.
And in answer to the mystery flower from Friday’s post.
KB from Romping and Rolling in the Rockies, and Amy from Terra Toby knew the answer. It’s called a monument plant, and only blooms once. Even though it lives between 20 and 80 years. KB posted this on my facebook page and I was amazed! You have to go read it, truly amazing.
I wish now I had taken more photos.
