Morning Walk Update

We're off for our morning walk, walking in the reserve next to the High School Ag plot. 

Bella cannot be trusted off-lead
Bella checks the's supported by a net.
 The chickens are making their usual racket.
 The lamb is growing up.  The other sheep make a wall between
 us and the lamb.
 And the horses are back!  
They always come to the fence when we come to see them.
Dogs and horses sharing the same tuft of grass.
 In the next paddock there's something new.
A mother and baby.
 The first time we saw them, the mother always got between us and her baby.
 But now, she lets the baby come right up to the fence to say hello.
Roxy is getting much better at 'keeping calm' and not barking.
We saw these ducks flying overhead.

Who's their navigator?


  1. You have a very interesting walk with lots of sights to see, you're so lucky. That's a great shot of the ducks - perhaps they have a sat-nav!

  2. Love that last photo.
    And how I would have loved to have had an 'Ag Plot' at school.
    Cheers, Gail .

  3. You have such cool critters to say hello to. I would not be trusted off leash. I once chased a horse all the way down the beach and peeps had to say sorry to the lady. I just wanted to join in the fun. Peeps ruins everything. Have a terrific Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. Morning to my ladies DownUnder!!
    What a nice area for your morning walk...all the critters make for interesting conversations.
    So that is a high school strictly aimed at agriculture? What a great idea.
    We love the little pony!
    Lots of hugs madi your BFFF

  5. A great place to walk.

    Love Ruby & Penny

  6. Nice morning walk! I think it's great that you can check out the animals that closely without them being scared. Good time sniffings for all.

  7. The ducks can blame it on global warming...they seem to blame everything on that. How cool that you get some nose to nose time with the horses

  8. So fun that you have such an interesting place for the pups to take their walk.

  9. WHat a great walk! You've got so much to see so close by. Wondering about those birds though....hmmm....

  10. What a fun place to walk... Love the babies

  11. What a fun walk. Good for you managing to catch the photo of the birds (flying west??) We saw two perfect "V" formations the evening before last but didn't have the camera handy.

  12. Those look like the very same ducks that flew over head here last week! Are they in a race to circumnavigate the world or something? Oh what a wonderful place to be able to visit and sniff. I know I'd be on my best behaviour there.....NOT! I learn quickly though.

  13. You girrrrls have some grrreat morning walk furends. We love to see the babies with their moms. You are really brave to get so close to them.

  14. Wow… you have so many critters and furfriends to visit on your walkies. I'm so jealous. I only have another doggie or two (if they are walking with I'm out).
    Have a good day.

  15. Ducks in the Southern Hemisphere can't fly south for the coming winter so west will have to do. A duck has to be somewhere else.

  16. Man, you guys have the most awesome place for some walkies, we just get to stand at the back forty fence and bark at our stuff!

  17. No off lead...I know all about that. Ugh.


  18. So beautiful! We love that black little horsie coming over to see you.

  19. Wow, what a great walkie! I'd love to trade snuffles with those horsies. I think I'd try to bash those chickens. Thanks for letting me see the critters on your walkie!
    Grr and Woof,

  20. A lot to look at on that walk. Congrats on keeping your cool.

  21. What a fun place to walk! Those BIG DOGS are beautiful, especially the baby. Mom is hoping our local donkeys come out to their pasture soon so Phantom can go visit his buddies.

    Pumpkins? Already?

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  22. WOW!!!! You lucky girls! SO much to see, sniff & bark at!!
    Wally & Sammy

  23. We wish we had so many animals to smell. Lee and Phod

  24. You sure do see some interesting looking dogs on your walk
    Benny & Lily

  25. What a fun place to visit and see all the changes.

    've been wondering where the geese we are seeing are coming FROM and I wonder where yours are off too!

  26. What a wonderful walk, thanks so much for taking us along. I never seen a pumkin off the ground before and boy does My Vickie like the picture of the Geese flying


  27. That looks like a fun place to walk. So much to see.


  28. OMD! I wish I had all those furends to say hello to!! Wows, there are alots of different critters there ~ very cool.
    pees: Bella, don't feel bad, I can not be trusted off lead either....

  29. You guys seem to have the best places to walk to. You even have horsies and lambies. Kudos to Roxy for keeping calm.

    Huggies and Cheese,


  30. Wow. What exciting walks you take! I love how the mamas protect their babies!

  31. You must live by a zoo - so many animals!

  32. Chickens, there was a story on the evening news about the growing population of chicken being raised in the city limits in Cincinnati tonight. Seems the thing to do is have your own fresh eggs now. We see them alot when we walk.
    Thanks for being a friend

  33. I have never seen any of those kinds of animals up close so thank you for showing me. Horses are soooooooo big, it is kind of scary. Bella, I can't be trusted off lead either, we both like to wonder I guess.

  34. Happy birthday to the birthday pups and cogrants to Mr Pip and Puddles Duddles Rainwater
