Weekend Stuff

Last weekend was very action-packed indeed! So much so, that I'm only catching up now.

Last Friday was spent at a friend's house, and while on a long walk we spotted some ponies in a field next to the road.

They decided it would be fun to come and say hello.

The three mares looked to be in foal (pregnant).

This one seemed to be the youngest.

This one in the middle.

And this one the oldest.

Once Saturday came though, it was business as usual. We made silage in the field in front of our house, with 55 bales in total.

Pip was once again my little helper.

She's beginning to enjoy her trips in the tractor now that she's used to the sound. When she sees it, she runs over and stands at the steps to get inside! She's able to jump in and onto the chair all by herself. And she can jump onto bales.

And pose there too!

Here she is contemplating on how to get down...


  1. The mare does look pregnant. Maybe the next time you go by there will be a foal by her side. Pip looks like a true farm dog. I love the smell of fresh cut hay! My Pip would love to live with you. He has gone from a farm dog to a town dog..poor guy..LOL

  2. Lovely weekend in the country :D Pip is looking very good!

    Waggin at ya,

  3. Those horsies are gorgeous! And what GREAT shots you got of Pip up on the hay! Love them! :)

    Woofs & hugs,

  5. Great pictures! Felt like we had a visit to the farm! You sure take great pictures!

  6. Hope you get to say the young horses once they are born. Way to go, Pip. How we would love to ride on a tractor too.

    Happy weekend.

  7. Love the pictures of Pip on the bales!! What is the difference between silage and hay? When they cut hay here, it is golden colored. I'll have to show BB your tractor pics -- she is going to be jealous; she thinks tractors are very cool!

  8. The mares are beautiful! Can't wait to see shots of the foals. Pip must be some jumper to get all the way up there. :)

  9. I was thinking those mares looked pregnant! And I don't even know anything about horses really...!

    Looks like Pip's fur is coming in thick (or maybe it's just the pictures). She is super photogenic as usual!

    Where's my Ben fix?? Hehe! ;-)
