Well if that don't beat all, sitting outside I heard a funny buzzing sound and a squeak sounded like a hummingbird but not quite. Finally went to check and found a little female hummingbird trapped between the wagon wheel and the deck in some long wet grass. Very carefully got her extracted and she chirped at me, pooped in my hand , and nearly took my eye out leaving! I am sure that's just how they say thank you right???
Do have to say,it felt odd holding that fragile creature! I could see her but she felt like nothing but air! Think she is fine, hope so.
This incident, and this spring, moms illness, our critters calving, and foaling remind how fragile yet tough God's creatures can be.
Tiny calves born in cold temps,bounce right up and start to nurse, just hit the ground growing! Unless they don't,then it can and does end badly some times.
The foals ,the same up on those wobbly pins so quickly after they are born drinking and running before we know it . Even Little Peanut (Oakley's Arctic Heather ) or Sprite (as I suggested today) with her rough star and is doing fine!
well enough in fact t o tell big broher Maks where he needs to be
Actually it seems today was a day for the baby sisters to me telling the boys what's up!
Casey giving Tango a "talking to"
And my tough little mom, out for a visit today , she and dad brought lunch! Burger Baron yumm!!!
So today was a good day to remember to watch for passing miracles ,they are out there .
Hope you are all having a great weekend .
And as always, stay safe
