My name is Christina and this is what started out to be my dog/horse blog named after my dog Lexi. Slowly my blog has morphed into a dog/life/farm blog. I love to take photos of everything relating to the farm and local events. I am also a Design Junkie and love to take my old run down ranch and redesign every inch into my dream retreat. Join Lexi, myself and all the delightful creatures at Bluebird Farm and have a peek inside our wonderful world... "The World According To Lexi"
Nitro and I decided to take a walk down our country road last night to practice our loose leash walking since we are working so hard at perfecting it in class. Wow, what an amazing night! We left the farm as the sun was setting and it seems like all the Canadian Geese and neighborhood horses were out and about. I think we got some fun photos of our little walk down the road. Enjoy!
Since the fields are covered with butter cups and the sun was setting the fields glowed with a golden hue. Here are some of the adult Geese from last years batch. They are loud and proud! Nitro barked at them and they flew away!
This farm was owned by a sweet man named Harry Smith who passed away a few months ago. All of his horses have been sold and now all the butter cups and grass are growing out of control. I love this old tree next to his big red barn. I also love the way the sun is hitting the side of the barn as the sun goes down. Things just don't seem the same without seeing Harry out at his barn every evening feeding his heard of horses. We sure miss him.
Here is one of the newest babies on the road. I think he is a yealing Quarter Horse. He is just adorable!
He is checking out Nitro in this shot.
Nitro touched noses with this horse, gave him a couple of licks, and then he wanted to play with him. I think Nitro thinks this colt is just a really big dog. Okay, he isn't that bright on the social seen (if you know what I mean).
This is a little Hackney pony up at the Richard's farm. So cute!
This is one of the horses a few houses down from Bluebird Farm at the Delano farm. Nitro is just relaxing checking out the view.
Look at that pretty little face. He is so cute with his bright blue eye.
I know he is thinking "if she would let me off this leash, I would go make friends and play with that big old dog over there in the pasture"...like I said socially inexperienced!
Here are the baby goslings. They are growing so fast. It looks as if she lost one. There were six baby goslings and now there is only five.
I love the reflection in this shot. I don't take many photos at this particular pond because I can't see it from the road very well. I have to sneak onto their property, go up a hill and cross over by about 20 feet and shoot the photos fast before thier dogs come tearing down the main drive.
