About dawndi

I've been a very happy film producer (commercial and long format) for over 20 years. But, the horses have always been foremost in my heart... Currently I live on a small ranch in California with my wonderful husband, 13 horses, 4 dogs, 3 cats and various woodland creatures. Life is good!

SATURDAY IS PHOBLOG DAY!






Today, we are having company!!  This is the first time in our old, new home!  The kitchen and bathroom are still not finished and I’ve hung no artwork… but it is good enough for now!

HERE WE GO!

WOW.

I’m not a tattoo person, but this one is astounding. If I was younger, I would do this.

Repurposing.

I cannot even estimate how long that took to put up – and how long it will take pack it all away… Maybe they leave it up all year.

Yeah, no worries. I don’t care what the temp is today, or any day…

Kea parrot from New Zealand… wow!

Great idea.

I know it is photoshopped because no horse is that white for more than the moment he leaves the crossties… But still!

A great use of kitty litter containers. I wonder if they have little ladders for the top row?

A gorgeous wild family.

The aftermath of an owl hunt.

When I was growing up in San Francisco, my Dad used to take me to Ripley’s Believe it or Not museum on Fisherman’s Wharf. They had stuff like this there.

My fav pic of the week! At first, I couldn’t figure it out. Then, I realized that someone snuck up on this horse and took a lovely photo – because the horse trusted and loved this human photog.

1/14/23.  TODAY, it is pouring rain in California.  I’m guessing many of you have read about this.  Our power is off and on.  Tough to upload pics.  But, let’s go for it!

HERE WE GO!

Storm clouds are scary, but beautiful!

Gorgeous and he knows it…  photo by Tamara Gooch

I love this. What a great face!  Southern Ground Hornbill

What a GREAT idea!!

These huge bats look like hanging dogs, to me.

Red-eyed crocodile skinks look like baby dragons

These are flowers!

Perfect colors.

Yup.

Kinda like us… a myriad of colors

A neighbor actually found these guys in her yard. Makes me think that they fought each other and were caught on that side…

Both determined.

So pretty.

Annual event in CO. I would love to see that!

This pic tells SUCH a story!

1/21/23.  Today started with an Emergency with Norma Jean.  She had choke.  The ER vet came almost immediately and we did resolve this episode… but aspiration pneumonia and other issues still lay in wait.  I don’t know why she choked…  was it old age or her teeth or something underlying?  We will find out.

HERE WE GO!

Mother Nature and her artwork, astounds me.

So creative!

OMG, I love this!

I could see this as a great room for the grandkids where they could all be together. However, looking at the chess board, I think this is for grownups.

This puppy stole my heart.

Nope.

Again, Mother Nature with her sense of humor…

Wow.

A little bandit kitty

This reminds me of my youth near Yosemite… crossing cold rivers on boulders.

Clearly we are past the season, but still good to know.

snow flake.

YES!
