Saturday Pet Blogger Hop - 5-21-2011 - Taking A Walk With Nitro - Geese, Ground Hogs and Wild Turkeys

Lexi, Nitro, Tallulah, Bailey, and I are excited to participate in this weeks Saturday Pet Blogger Hop. Special thanks goes out to our Pet Blog Hop hosts, Life With Dogs, Two Little Cavaliers and Confessions of the Plume! If you would like to read some entertaining pet blogger posts in the Saturday Pet Blogger Hop, just click on one of the host links above or click on the purple Pet Blogger Hop button on the right side of our homepage. Happy Pet Blog Hopping!

It has been raining here on Bluebird Farm for days and it is suppose to continue to rain for the next six days so Nitro and I got out on a walk (in between thunder storms) before it starts raining again. Here are some photos from our walk around the neighborhood. As you can see those Canadian goslings are getting bigger and  bigger not to mention everywhere we looked, everything was so lush and green. I am glad we are actually having a spring this year instead of jumping right into summer. We should have a really good hay crop this year and all of our wells should be filled to the rims! That makes for happy horses and happy farmers! Enjoy this beautiful season,  Lexi, Nitro, Tallulah, Bailey and Christina xoxoxo

 See how much they have grown! There was six but only five made it this far. Last year we had six.

 This is Cookie the neighbors horse (she is very sweet).

 Such a handsome chaperone!

 I love this mailbox because it reminds me of simpler times.

 Nitro walking with me. He got a bath last week for the Pet Expo and he is still really clean.

We have huge flocks  Wild Turkeys here on Bluebird Farm and every year we have a big batch of poults (baby tturkey chicks) following their parents around. In all my years here on the farm I have never seen a Tom Turkey. Well look what I spotted off in the distance! I took following photos below from a distance because I didn't want to interrupt old Tom Turkey's mating ritual. Isn't he just stunning? Spotting old Tom Turkey made my day.

Such a handsome devil!

We put Christmas lights on our cross in the yard five or six years ago to celebrate the birth of Jesus and they have remained on the cross since. When you come up our driveway in the evening as the sun is setting, the cross lights up from the sun setting. It really is stunning to see when Nitro and I walk up the driveway after our walks together.

This photo was taken a couple of weeks ago (the last time we had sunny weather). It has been raining for almost 2 weeks straight so I thought if I at least posted one sunny photo that maybe, just maybe we would have a nice sunny weekend. Here's to the sun coming out again!
XOXOXOX  Lexi, Nitro, Bailey, Tallulah and Christina


  1. It's great to see some sunshine. I ready for more! Enjoyed your photos! Tom Turkey is super handsome! So is Nitro, of course. I can't believe how big the goslings are now. Growing up so fast.

  2. Tom is just so regal! and of course so is Nitro and Bailey. We've had a little less rain here in Northern VA but love those sunny days, too.

    Drools and licks,
    Minnie and Mack

  3. I love the pictures of your beautiful farm. I'm sure Ginger, Sassy and Chili would have a great time living there! Stopping by from the blog hop. Happy Saturday.

  4. I love seeing little goslings trailing along after Mom or Dad! What a nice view of your farm!

  5. They're so sweet. I think Rowdy is missing Handsome a little bit. Not sure if we will get a second dog again or not... *sigh*


  6. Here from the blog hop. What gorgeous photographs and I love all the wildlife and your dog, Nitro, of course. We have a lot in common since I spend much of the year in the wilderness too!

  7. Found you on the blog hop! Looks like a pretty awesome walk you take. What kind of camera do you use?

  8. What a gorgeous day. Loved Mr. Tom!

    Nubbin wiggles,

  9. I love your pictures! Your dogs are wonderful, and Nitro's face is just stunning! You can tell him I said so :) Meant to just hop thru on the Blog Hop but I had to stay and see some of your beautiful pix.

  10. Hi! Sam here from the blog hop! We live in the country too but I've not seen our wild turkeys do what you saw! Pretty cool
