Bike rides & horse rides

Mom, Dylan (carefully, mind you), and Rylan went for a bike ride today...

...and Rylan really enjoyed it, because he didn't have to do much work, just sit back and enjoy the ride! :)

I rode this old sweetheart for the first time since we got him today. Red reminds me so much of my sweet old horse Sam, pictured at the very top of this blog.
Mom and I also rode her horse, Mia, and I gave the little ones rides on Red, but we didn't get any actual riding pictures. But, don't worry, there definitely will be in the near future! :)

So, it's been a fun day of bike and horse rides! :)

Animal happenings

New animals:
Okay, first - the horses! We have 3 horses now!

My Grandpa and Grandma gave us two horses and we got a horse.

Mia is a solid palomino Appaloosa, Freedom is a Paint, and Big Red is a red roan Quarter Horse.

Freedom meeting Mia:

Red meeting Mia:

Mia is 10 years old, isn't she beautiful?:

Red is 23 years old, he's a sweet old boy!:

And Freedom is 13 years old, what a pretty boy!:

Look at his beautiful blue eyes! :)

Second is ... the kittens! Whiskers had more kittens! We have 4, and guess what??? Two of them don't have tails! The father must have been a tail-less cat! But they are just the most adorable-est little things you've ever seen! :)


The two tail-less kitties:

Thirdly - we helped our friends out by finding good homes for their 3 cute puppies! So, we took them home with us, these three sweet little girls! Aren't they such cute little puppies? :)




Daisy loves them! :)

And so do the littles!

Cuddles and Peanut have went to good homes, and as for Lady ... we are really trying to talk Dad into keeping her! :) She's such a cute lil' pup!

And last but not! 5 goldfish and 1 placo. And are you ready for their names? Goldie - named by Levi, Sandy - named by Joshua, Nemo - named by Paige, Dolphin - named by Elias, Twix - named by Mom, and Kirby - named by Dad! :)

Happy about the fish! :)

Sandy looking at his reflection in the glass!

Kirby, the tank cleaner!

And just in case you haven't been introduced to the other pets on our little farm ... here they are:

Oreo, our 10 year old Saint Bernard/Australian Shepard mix boy~

Daisy is our 6 year old Golden Retriever~

Midnight, our sweet 12 year old little panther!



A view further back when taking Joshua's school pictures, lol! :)

He's growing fast!

Jungle - Joshua's cute little parakeet!~

And the rabbits are doing good as well! If anyone out there has rabbits and would like the chance to win a free copy of a terrific rabbit care book, you now have the chance! I'm doing a giveaway!

And, we might just be adding to our animal list here soon, Lord willing!

Fun in the leaves

We have been really enjoying the beautiful fall colors down here! We are surrounded by trees here where we live and it is so pretty! 

So, hope you enjoy: pictures of trees and leaves, pictures of the baby admiring the leaves, and pictures of the  little boys having fun jumping in leaves! :)
