Sammie's Farm Chore January 11, 2012 Sammie has a very important farm chore. She helps feed the cattle. Actually, she throws a big fit if the boys go without her. While he pours in the feed, the cattle come running until they see me that is.Then they pose for some pictures before dinner. Sammie waits patiently on the other side of the fence. Now for her part of the chore. I told you it was a very important chore.

Love it!xoxo,Clydiathreemangoseeds.blogspot.comReplyDeleteGaertegangJanuary 11, 2012 at 11:30 AMLOVE IT! Your pictures are always so stunning...what kind of camera do you have? Just wondering.ReplyDeleteMaura @ Lilac Lane CottageJanuary 11, 2012 at 11:33 AMSammie is a sweetie...funny how retrievers love to carry things in their mouths. Does she greet visitors by running and getting something to give to them? Ours used to get so excited trying to find something...ANYTHING he could carry in his mouth to take to the guest when they walked in the door. That's sweet that she likes to carry the feed bags to the garbage. I wonder if you're getting our weather...we've got a 30% chance of snow this afternoon and 20% this evening and we have a wind warning in effect. Keep warm and stay safe if you get hit!Maura :)ReplyDeleteKimJanuary 11, 2012 at 12:04 PMGaertegang,Thanks for the compliments on the photos! I do love taking pictures.I recently got a Canon EOS Rebel T3i digital camera. It was a gift from my husband for Birthday/Christmas/Anniversary (all within 3 weeks). I have wanted a fancy digital for a long time and I just love it. Before that I was using a simple point and shoot and took repeat shots to try to get the pic just right. (I rarely use a flash.) Then I would send the pics through Photoshop to brighten them. Now I am using Picnik through Picasa but do very little to edit. The camera just takes great pictures! :)Maura,Sammie is always carrying things ~ if not balls & bones, then grocery sacks!ReplyDeletekatiegirlJanuary 11, 2012 at 12:47 PMThat's too cute!

Around here, the 4H and FFA girls recycle them by sewing them into reusable grocery totes--they sell them for $15 each.ReplyDeleteAdd commentLoad more... Post a Comment So what do you think of that?
