Friday's Hunt #2...

It's time for another post linking to Friday's Hunt, with Teresa at Eden Hills!

This week's prompts are...

1. The letter "B"

I've got a wagon full of buckets that fit into that category!  Water buckets...milk buckets...

...buckets full of breakfast...

...empty buckets...

I'll add another "B", and that's bummer.  Remember our little calf with the broken leg?  We're so disappointed.  We did everything we could for her, but she unfortunately didn't make it.  These things happen, but it's never easy.

2. "Week's Favorite"

I couldn't post just one of my favorite Tom cat, Dust Bunny!  He has a super personality, and is the largest, softest cat that we have.  He feels just like a stuffed animal!

3.  "Outside"

It's dreary outside again...but the chickens don't seem to mind.  They're still giving me 10 - 12 eggs per day! They love being outside, and they come running to the fence anticipating a treat.  Every time...

Happy Saturday to you!


  1. I am sorry about Bummer but love your cat. Also I love the way chickens always come runing for a treat. Have a lovely weekend.

  2. So sorry to hear you lost the calf. That certainly is a lot of buckets! That cat looks like he might be a tad bit spoiled too. Happy chickens! We were 36 and rainy last night. This morning, we're 9 and windy. I wish we could find a happy medium. Thanks so much for linking up.

  3. Dust Bunny is a great name for a dusty grey cat! He looks like a cutie! And I love the photo of your chickens at the fence! Sorry about losing the calf, though.

  4. I'm sorry about the little calf. Sometimes no matter what you do it's just not meant to be. Such a beautiful kitty - I had a grey cat named Ghost once.

  5. Sorry to hear of the loss of your calf . Lots of buckets there for all those hungry heifers . Oh I like smoky grey kitties what a cutie you have there ! The weather has been chilly, gloomy and rainy here to still no snow on the ground for us as of yet ! Thanks for sharing , have a good weekend !

  6. Lovely cat! I do love a grey cat, my first one was a grey and they always have a soft spot for me.

  7. I'm so sorry about poor little calf. What a bummer indeed...She must have had some internal injuries. Those hens sure are earning their keep.
    Have a great weekend Alica.

  8. Sorry about the calf. It is always hard when we lose one of the farm critters.
    Mr. Dust Bunny looks like a love!
    Nice chickens, are they Red Sex Links?

  9. I got a kick out of your header with the look on number 248's face. lol
    Your chickens don't mind being photographed and they all ran front and centre.

  10. serious barn cat envy here... miss mine... really sad about the calf. poor little thing.

  11. Sorry to hear about Bummer, but you are right. Sometimes things on the farm just don't work out. My chickens are on strike for the winter....maybe time for a few new ones.

  12. Sorry about your little calf. That is a bummer. On the sweet side, you have Dust Bunny filling you with joy. :-)

  13. Alicia,

    Buckets, I love it! A farm/ranch wife has expert bucket hauling skills!

    The cat on my FB header, Punkin, was my little buddy and always under foot. Unfortunately, under car tire is not as safe. J was pretty sad to tell me of Punkin's ill fate.

    Yea that your chickes are still laying! For a long time I was getting 5 eggs one day and 2 the next. I'm getting less now. Maybe with this weeks warmer temps they will give a few more eggs.

    I am down to 13 hens. I seem to have one girl that vanished. I haven't seen her for a week and nor have I seen any evidence of her.

    Hope you have a wonderful week!

  14. I need to start doing Teresa's Friday roundup! I'm sorry about the calf.


I enjoy hearing what you have to say! Thanks for your comments!
