So...


Since you guys thought the Turkey Vulture was 'ugly'...


Here's a very handsome Red Fox.


He was shedding his winter coat so his coat is
 not as vivid as it is in the winter.


      He was curious...
              

Very curious...


   Of me or maybe it was the annoying sound of my camera.
I'm left with this image of his beautiful piercing eyes.

I just spent two years working on a Sue Spargo quilt and finally finished just the top. It's her Forest for the Trees BOM from 2019. I hope to be able to share that soon. And now I am working on a Linda Brannock quilt, Raised Beds. A quilt of homespun cotton applique on a black wool background.

I'm...

Not...

Feeding him!

A Turkey Vulture perched on one of my feeding stations for the birds.

I'm in awe on how seriously big they are closeup.  A six foot wing span. They are about two and a half feet tall and what's shocking is that they only weigh five pounds. You usually see them on the side of the road eating carrion. What a sight to see him closeup.

Due to Technical Difficulties...


         I haven't been able to upload pics from my camera.            


But finally success.


So some photos of the Bighorn Sheep from February.


It was cold, beyond cold...
Like below zero cold...
for weeks.


With snow...


Lots of snow...


I'm always amazed how they all weather
such harsh conditions.


The biggest Ram who watched over his herd.
They are now enjoying the welcome warmth of Spring.

It's Been Awhile...

For me and my friends...

                                                                                    

                        Bitter cold temps, like 5 degrees and snow for October... 

                                   Has brought a small herd of lambs..

                                     

                                         And the Ewes to the property.


                        I'm excited to see a total of three lambs and their Moms.
