A miracle is born

Friday March 31st,a new babe was born 3 weeks early to Merlot. Mom & babe doing well. Preston pictured here is 3 days old. He really had his mom hopping to keep up with him. After all his running around and kicking up his heals he flaked out in the nice warm straw. While mom got a rest and had some nice hay. It was the best day we have had yet. Warm, sunny and perfect for a little foal to kick up his heels. He loved it and so did Merlot. She enjoyed her outing with her son. What a photo shoot. Loved every minute. What a great mom. She nuzzled him, licked him, and when he started running she ran with him. Never apart. A mothers love.
I hope you enjoy looking at these pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them!!

Pets are Family

Family pets

Never a dull moment when you have pets in the home. While I was in South Carolina in Feb. one of my little lovebirds Tia, passed away. Her brother Marley is still going strong thank goodness. They are 12 years old and she had some issues in the last few months. It was so sad to have that happen while I was away. Below she & Marley were inseparable. She is on the right. Marley looks a little scruffy but now his feathers are actually growing back in. He is a real sweetheart.

Rescued kittens

 With so many kittens being born in the world today. It is such a great story when you here of a kind person taking them in. This lady took one from this litter and later that same day,went back and took the rest. 3 in total and also another older kitten from a different litter. She couldn't bare to leave the others behind. They are beautiful and oh so loved now. It is such a great feeling. They are so innocent and don't deserve to be abandoned ( or worse). And worse is happening all to often out there. So these little ones are going to be okay now. Have a loving and warm home and are becoming indoor kittens. Were they are safe from harms way. All people have to do is be responsible. Have their cats spayed or neutered. Keep them inside. It is all common sense!!  And after all. Aren't they worth it!!!

 Curious as all get out, this little one was checking out my camera gear.
 This little one is 5 months old now. A little ruff on the wee ones just yet. So supervision when they are together is a must. For now they are kept apart. But what a handsome young man.
 Just figured out how to get (on top ) of the bed.  Look at me.!!
 Just enjoyed a nice tasty meal.
 MMMMMMMMMMMMMM,that was good.
   Got any more!!

 Sitting on my camera bag. What a sweetheart.
 Loves being hugged and snuggled.
 Although the toys are way bigger than the kittens. They have a blast with them. And are growing very fast.
