Raising A Family Is A Busy Job!

I am constantly cleaning up after these girls.

And trying to keep them in line. . .

Higgins is not too much help. . .

Away from the Hot Tub Ladies!!!

That's better.   Oh, you want to race?

Bring it on!

Holy Chicken!  You're a fast one!

Give up already?

Just checking. . . .

What?  You don't like being sniffed?  Are you crazy????


What a great day.  I love my new family.

Especially Harriet.

Higgins and the Plastic Bowl

Mister Higgins does not like to eat out of a plastic bowl.  He wants his stainless steel dish.  When we are camping we use plastic dog bowls.  But even though he makes a point of refusing to eat, he's smart enough to know one of us will get it if he walks away.  In no way is that acceptable.  He doesn't want it but no one else can have it either!

So he tries to hide it. Bwahahhahaha!

All the while Sir Bear and I just bide our time.  As soon as Higgins looks the other way - BAM - bye bye dinner!

Flowers and Horses and Bats! Oh My!

On our camping trip, when it wasn't rainy, we walked down to the horse camp and met this BIG gal.

Her name is Amber, as you can see on her halter (is that what it's called?)  Anyway, she must have been the Queen Horsey because she was giving us the Royal Stink Eye so we made a hasty retreat!

This was our true destination.  The Bat Barn/Nursery.  It was a long hike. The road went around, not straight through the marshy stuff (although we could have gone through there and gotten all muddy, no thank you!)

When we got there we found these informational plaques to polish up our Bat knowledge.  We are now officially "Batty".  You can click on the picture to enlarge it so you can read it and become Batty too!

Same here :)  Of course!

This barn was enormous.  All of it was boarded up and there were openings at the top where the bats could fly in and out.  There were no bats in residence when we were there. Evidently we were a little early in the season. They go away in the winter :(   Maybe we will see them next time.

We did, however, see the mess they leave behind.  Icky.

Not so icky were the little flowers growing around the barn.  Pink is for girls, so maybe all the bat babies will be girls this year! 

This picture is to show you the size of the barn/nursery.  That is Henry's mom in the grass.  See how tiny she looks next to the barn? 

This is looking back at the horse camp we came from.  I hope Amber is on the trails by now!

Thanks for stopping by!  Tomorrow I will show you what Mister Higgins does when he is fed from a plastic bowl instead of stainless steel.  He's such a dork!
