Beavers, Sheep & Horses!

Sunday we wandered out to Carol & Harry’s farm. Carol invites friends over for art movies once a month. This round fell on Easter. We watched “How to draw a bunny” a 2002 documentary on the life and work of Ray Johnson. Very, very interesting….

After the movie, we went out to view the new farm visitor. A beaver has taken up residence in the pond. Not a great thing when you’re trying to grow trees and such. Harry and Donna hopped into the canoe and took it for a paddle. Harry has sighted the elusive giant rodent!

The rest of us watched from shore.

The beaver would pop it’s head up and cruise around.


Then it would dive with a dramatic tail slap!


Too bad I couldn’t catch the tail action.

It had been quite a while since I’ve been out to see the farm residents. I wandered up to visit the draft horses, 2 Belgium and 1 Percheron.



One has to view the sheep too. They were all out in the larger pasture enjoying the sunshine. The lambs are huge now!


They left their heavy winter coats in the barn.


That was all for the farm day. One of these years we hope to move out close to Carol & Harry’s place.

We did go celebrate my nephews 30th birthday that night! Hooray Chris! A great day all around!
