Finishing February in fine fashion

A friend of Brian's is going to play family volleyball with us tonight, then come home with us for a sleep-over in the woods. Brian has been prepping his campsite, and this afternoon he wanted me to come down and spend some time with him there. We took turns reading each other Bible passages (I knit when he read), standing by the fire (the temperature was far cooler than Brian's attire would lead you to believe), and being entertained by Jackson (in the photo below the slanted stick points to him off in the background).

Jackson entertained himself with sticks for awhile,

then got busy digging holes.

In the pasture beside us, my handsome Lance grazed happily. He's breathing hard and coughing occasionally, so I've been giving him special treatment. He doesn't act sick, so we're not sure WHAT is going on with him.

On my way back to the house, I picked up the last two eggs of February. One was oddly wrinkled. Ouch!

That's it for another month at . . .

Sounds like a perfect afternoon. Just to let you know we'll be back in France soon and I'm hoping to post to my blog whilst we're out there! X

What a great afternoon with your son. The campsite looks mighty fine. I don't believe I've seen pictures of Jackson before; anyway, he is a handsome dog, full of good energy, I bet.

Lance's coughing and breathing...could it be heaves from the fresh lush grass?

Can't wait to read more of your adventures, Maggie!

Yes, Jackson IS handsome and energetic, but not hyper. He's a great dog!

Fiona, I started letting him graze AFTER the coughing started; I suspect the problem is our sub-par hay but it hasn't affected our other two horses.

Nancy Kay, if you want to see a lot more photos of our handsome Jackson, just click on the Jackson label in the right sidebar.

ah poor hay would explain a lot. I did have a mare that was almost allergic to the very rich early grass..I always worry with horses and wheezing! He is such a fine horse!

Not only is that egg wrinkled, it is large. Double ouch!
