Yippy Ti Yi Yay!


Hello, Dear Ones!
I know everyone is Falling and even some of you are Christmasing.
Not me!
I wanted to share with you a wonderful weekend Mr. Precious and I had recently!

We got the chance to go visit a ranch.
That's the little owner in the carriage and guess what? 
He's 93 years young! What a little hoot he was.

Just look at these beautiful and spirited horses. 
They were truly strutin' their stuff.

Now along with the ranch came a huge huge brick building which held one of the largest carriage collections in the U.S.

Aren't these just wonderful?

This is a very special carriage.

I was so excited to see this!
It was used in the movie Gone With the Wind!
Just think, Scarlet's bum sat on that seat! :)
Just so you'll know, I did touch the carriage with my most dainty fingers.

This was a darling little couple who posed for me.

Horse accoutrements! :)

Then we were ready for a hay ride to tour the fields.

We had a little companion who tagged along with us.
Meet Lulu.

Lulu was so energetic and ran ahead of us. Behind us. Beside us. When our hay ride truck bed stopped, she would hop on and give everyone kisses and hop off. Then she'd hop back on again and almost ate a lady's hat! :)
I just had to laugh.

On this ranch they raised bulls.
Aren't they something else?

There were little baby cows, calves. 
I'm not very countrified with the correct country farm lingo so you'll have to excuse me.

Cute little babies.

Now I was a bit confused.
They said they raised bulls and I thought bulls were male but these were mommies to the little babies, so they have to be cow bulls.
That's right ~ these are mama bulls. :)

Those mama bulls and baby bulls did not scare little Lulu.
No, no Nannette, they did not!
She just decided she'd cool off in their drinking spot. 
Just so you'll know, she jumped out of the water, wiggled off some water and jumped back on the truck bed with us. 
What a little hoot.

It was just a gorgeous day and I felt like a kid playing out in the country.

Now I'll let you all get back to your Thankgivinging and your Christmasing and I just may join you.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)


I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Happy Trails To You

Happy trails to you, until we meet again.
Happy trails to you, keep smilin' until then.
Who cares about the clouds when we're together?
Just sing a song and bring the sunny weather.
Happy trails to you, 'till we meet again.

Some trails are happy ones,
Others are blue.
It's the way you ride the trail that counts,
Here's a happy one for you.

Happy trails to you, until we meet again.
Happy trails to you, keep smilin' until then.
Who cares about the clouds when we're together?
Just sing a song and bring the sunny weather.

Happy trails to you, 'till we meet again.
