Thanking Sally for taking the time out of her busy schedule to host this fun page, please visit her at SmilingSally.blogspot.com for more blue thingies.

In 2004, after thirteen years of joint research, an Australian company and a Japanese company created a true blue rose and named it Suntory.  Blue roses prior to this date were white roses that were dyed.blue-rose blue rose 200px-Bluerose

Happy Blue Monday to each of you !

THREE OR MORE!





This is my first time to join Three or More, but I have seen it for a while. Today I felt I had the perfect post for this fun day.



One of our nannies that have given us the most wonderful babies in the past was due at any time, in fact she was so big, she waddled when she walked and she was unable to run. I have called her Hairy Legs because she has long blonde hair on her legs, but after today, I decided to give her a more respectful name and so I named her Big Mamma. She gave us our billy, Baron, that is our main man right now, then she had 3 sons, then another wonderful billy.


Today after feeding my three babies, I saw her by a tree off by herself and knew there were babies. Sure enough there were 3, yes three, 2 girls and 1 great big boy. So far all are doing great. There is one little one,but she seems ok. What a great day…..

Big Mamma has some Kiko in her…shape of horns and hair on legs. She is a great mother and will keep her babies with her and away from the other goats for the next month. Her last son was still with her yesterday, he was born on Dec. 7, 2008.


What a wonderful day at the Bar H, we have several more nannies just about ready to deliver.


Hope you all have a Happy Tues and will visit Gypsy Corner for more bloggers participating in Three or More. Thanks Gypsy for letting me share pictures of my new babies.

What Is Happening on Our Blogs?

I started blogging in October 2008.  I have met so many wonderful people, even have had the opportunity to meet some in person.

In the last several months, I have seen a dark and hateful side to blogging and I am shocked and angry.

I have seen several friends ridiculed for their beliefs, is this country still not one that affords us freedom of speech?  Where are we headed  if we lose this privilege?

We will never agree with everyone, but we must afford them the right to state their beliefs and we have the right to respectfully disagree or simply log off that blog.

I thought blogging was about having a place to write about my life with its ups and downs and to state my opinion and I thought blogging was about my having a choice of which blogs I choose to read.

If I am wrong, then maybe it is not the place for me.

Most of us all have been blessed with good lives and for those that have serious problems, it is our place to support them in their times of need.

If you don’t feel this way, then maybe this is not a place for you either.

This is my space and if you are not happy here, then please leave.

Centerpieces, Etc.

 

Sometimes for me the hardest thing is to come up with a easy quick centerpiece using something I already have.  I found these and maybe if you have this same problem, some of them will help you.

Time for an Update on my Three Babies

 

Can you believe Booger Red and Termite were 2 months old on the 21st. and Sandy was 1 month old on the 20th.  I am trying to wean Red and Termite.  Their milk is getting weaker and soon their bottles will be filled with water.  Sandy is still a little young, so I will continue to feed her for another month.

They still have a tendency to stay together but by themselves.  So I spend a lot of time walking them around the pasture to find the other goats and then have to sneak off to get them to stay.  Can’t you just picture that!

The true test of acceptance will come when it rains and all the goats go in the sheds…..waiting to see if they will let them come in.  I am praying that they do, so I can stop worrying about them.

I still vividly remember the day Red and Termite were born, the mother didn’t even take Termite out of the sack.  She was so tiny and Roy says the Mother knew she couldn’t make it. 

Well, SHE DID.  She is a little sweetheart.

We have two that are due any day and I pray there is no problems and they don’t reject their babies.  This old mother needs a rest.

By the time I fix food for 6 dogs, keep the cat bowls full and the water bowls, feed the ducks,  and feed the babies three times a day, if I don’t hurry the entire day will be gone.

Last evening, while Roy and I were waiting for our dinner  to finish baking,  he called me to come outside and see the goats.  The whole herd was behind the pond, older goats were eating and the babies and younger goats were playing on the sides of the pond, running,jumping and butting each other.  As we stood there, one of our very expecting nannies came waddling by and we wonder how she can even walk.  The dogs, Mary and Pilgrim were lying in the grass watching their goats.  Roy remarked what a beautiful sight .

All was peaceful in God’s pasture on the Bar H Ranch.

We both love to just stand and watch our goats….Strange.

Yes I think we have a good life.

Spiritual Sunday



THROUGH THE YEAR

God be with you in the Springtime

     When the violets unfold,

And the buttercups and cowslips

     Fill the fields with yellow gold;

In the time of apple blossoms,

     When the happy bluebird sings,

Filling all the world with gladness---

God be with you in the Spring!

 

God be with you in the Summer,

     When the sweet June roses blow,

When the bobolinks are laughing

     And the brooks with music flow;

When the fields are white with daisies

     And the days are glad and long--

God be with you in the Summer,

     Filling all your world with song.

Have a wonderful Sunday and pray for our country!

Hugs,

Barbara
