Pedal Pull Saturday

The Kiowa County Farm Bureau Association
sponsored the Pedal pull at the
Haviland Antique Engine and Thresher Show

The kids all had fun and Laina made sure everyone got there prizes and snacks.

Then we looked around at the show.
It was a very colorful place.


The following are pictures the girls and I took last week.

This kitten is one Ellie named Star. We can't get close to him so I had to zoom in for the photo.

And our Twinkle. She has the wildest eyes, always.

Chickens do like watermelon

Yes the young chickens and the old hens did love the watermelon

Is this a chickens head?

This white chicken has green looking legs

The chickens are only about half grown but are starting to look like adults.
We really do have some different looking chickens, I just hope about half are hens and not all roosters.
Update picture of the little peacock, still with the mother and growing.

The peacocks ain't strutting much these days. Almost all the tail feathers are gone.

A black long hair Momma farm cat had 3 babies.
I knew where she had them when they were little, but
she moved them. This week is the first time I had seen them for a few weeks.


Steve was fixing fence on one side of the road and I was playing with the camera taking pictures. We have cattle in this pasture in the summer, its about 10 or 12 miles from home. Very beautiful county! The windmills are just across the road from each other.

Windy August Saturday

Today is not a good picture day!!!
The wind is so strong everything is blowing away, including my jeans on the line
Our poor trees.
The ice storm in 2008 broke off lots of branches and after trimming this is how they look.
