More horses

These beautiful gentle giants stand quietly, waiting to be walked into the shade where they will rest.

The hay was raked and drying in the sun as these two took their break.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.

Horses

My friends use these beautiful horses to work their fields and to transport the family in buggies.

These horses came close to the fence to check me out. I was happy to record them.

Raccoon

I was a surprised to see this visitor eating peanuts.

Stella was in the house, barking like crazy. I would never let her out to chase this raccoon away. Instead, I videoed from inside my house.

Peanuts were not replaced in that feeder. I set a few out in a different location. I wonder how long it will take this raccoon to learn that there are no more peanuts for it to eat here.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.

A bald eagle being bullied

I heard the eagle before I saw it perched high in a pine tree in my backyard.

The blue jays knew it was there and they didn’t like it. They took turns harassing the eagle. Eventually, the big bird left the tree.

I was happy to see the eagle. I was also happy when it left. My barn cats could have become the eagle’s breakfast.

My cats came to the front porch looking for their food. Some crossed the lawn.

I’m happy the eagle didn’t go for a cat.

Fingers crossed that the eagle doesn’t return.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.

Hummingbird at feeder

I was standing very still, waiting for the hummingbird to return. One would come and another would chase it away.

After many tries, I was lucky to get this video.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.
