Saturday is PhoBlog Day! New Puppy Blues, Rodeo Days, Donkey Fright and a Surfing Dog!






ALERT:

BEFORE WE GO INTO THE HAPPY PHOBLOG, I WANTED TO ALERT YOU TO WHAT IS HAPPENING IN OREGON TODAY.  THE WARM SPRINGS INDIAN RESERVATION IS HAVING THEIR ANNUAL HORSE SALE.  THEY ROUND UP WILD HORSES ON THEIR LAND AND SELL THEM.  But the only purchasers in the past have been meat buyers or rodeo horse trippers.  Many of the horses go for $5 – $10.  The horses that don’t sell are shot.  I’m not making this up. Read the article here.  Anyway, a wonderful woman from EOI (Equine Outreach – a 501 (c)3 ) is going to the sale.  You can go to the EOI website and donate to help her stockpile funds to rescue as many as she can.   Also, there are several FaceBook pages set up right now as people are scrambling to help her raise funds and to foster what she can save.  If this moves you, please read the article, the EOI website and the FB Pages.  Do whatever you think is right for you.  I just sent some money but she still doesn’t have enough to cover them all, their transport, housing and medical.   I think she is an angel for creating this firestorm to save these poor wild creatures from a very bleak future.  I thought you should know about this…  Thank you and feel free to cross post this anywhere.

Saturday is PhoBlog Day!  Today we have a hodgepodge of photos I’ve gathered this week.  I hope you enjoy them!

1)  This sheep cowboy photo was shot by Ron McGinnis.  You should go to his website because there are many more and his landscapes are to die for!  I just thought this was hysterical!

2)  I loved this shot of the Shire, Brenda Lee, and her little friend, Lucy.  It was taken by Jodie Sinclair.  She is also a professional and her website is here.  I actually got this off of Facebook.  Lucy and Brenda’s owner takes both of them swimming on a regular basis!

3)  Hubby found this Donkey Bray on the Internet and passed it over to me to put in today’s PhoBlog. So typical of a donkey to stir things up!  I love it!  I need to show this to my Norma!

4)  Here is my friend’s new puppy.  Her older dog, CoCo, is not too happy about the arrangement…  I absolutely looooove the expressions!

Enjoy!

I’m baaack!! Hawaii Pics for you all… Not quite horsey but fun nonetheless!






Hello everyone and thanks for allowing me to have a vacation!  I thought I would post some of my Hawaii pics and the stories behind them.

1)  First, we have one of the hotel parrots that I especially liked.  I think he liked me, too.  Whenever he saw me, he did a little dance.  It was so cute, I just had to take a few photos while he was dancing!  Hubby called him BOYFRIEND.  He’d say, “Are you going to visit your birdy boyfriend today?”

It is hard to tell in these small phone photos, but he is doing his birdy dance for me… It was kindof a sway, fluff, head bob thing.  Very, very cute.

2)  This was a beautiful bird that was just walking around the hotel.  His Mama was sitting on a nest.  I saw her turn her eggs a few times.  Daddy was watching nearby.  So, this youngster was by himself, just walking around.  He was very pretty.  I had my camera right in his face and he didn’t care.

3)  Here is a pic of Hubby on the beach.  I also took this photo of people I didn’t know… but the background is nice.

4)  Here is a gawdawful picture of me during my first surfing lesson!  I got up and had a blast!

5)  Here are two girls that had come up from the beach.  A bird vendor guy had just put these four birds on them and the girls were scared and tittering.  I had to take a pic.

6)  Finally, the funniest thing of all!  I’m posting a video of me surfing.  It is so embarrassing and totally unflattering but Hubby and I laughed so hard while viewing it, I had to post it!   Just click on the red highlighted link.  Have a good laugh on me!

Thanks for letting me skate for a week!
