Random Ranch Revue

I was sorting through a month's worth of pictures last night, saving the good and trashing the bad. These three never made it into a post, but I couldn't bear throwing them away.

  6. I LOVE the middle picture! The long-suffering (yea, right!) look and the flared nostrils are great, not to mention the gorgeous blue sky.

  9. The blue skies are just a stunning backdrop for the boys. I love the one with Hank and the contrails in the sky. George looks like he is napping in the cone zone.

  10. they just make me smile! love the trust you have to be able to lie on the ground benieth a HUGE animal who if he chose could really hurt you and take beautiful pics of them... you give them a human quality that is just too cute and sweet.

  11. George is doing what I do at work - head bang, head bang, head bang.

    Caption for Allen:
    "But Mom! I didn't do it!"

    Caption for Hank:
    "Hey, hey, good lookin'!"

    Thanks for the smile!

  12. Well, of course! George is doing the Vulcan mind meld with the cone: Be one with the cone, be at peace with the cone...

    So glad you decided to share these instead of trashing 'em. I couldn't have done that either. Love the one of George w/the cone.

  14. "I love my cone, I love my cone, I love my cone."
    "Mom, whatcha layin' on the ground for?"
    "I think I hear carrots calling."

  22. Nothing to do with the pictures---
    I was looking at weather bug and noticed there's another snowfall headed your way. Hopefully the temperatures will NEVER be the temps they were last week. Hang in there, March is headed this way.

  23. I can see why. They're gorgeous, the lot of them.

  24. The caption for the first one:

    "Be ONE with the cone."

  25. I have a feeling your "bad" photos are better than what I consider my "great" ones.

    Love these shots....

  26. Hank looks like he's just getting ready to tell a good joke!

  27. Howdy everybody this is Lucy and I like the pictures mom posted today. All my longeared brothers and sisters here had a good laugh this morning. I'm going to LOVE Hank, but man he has a small BUT cute set of ears. I'm looking forward to my new journey, cause my mom here tells me all the good things that will be happening to me and all my new friends, but she's so sad...I can see it in her face. I'm getting a lot of attention lately, too. The big, black, mule (Lickory) even said he'd miss me, but I know all he'll miss about me is running after me for exercise. I haven't told the others yet, I think they will REALLY miss me and I don't want to make them have sad faces like mom. I'll let her tell them after I get on the trailer. (She'll give them lots of packer pellets and loving) Well, bye everybody and see ya soon :) Lucy

  28. AWW Lucy! You had me crying for your Mom. I'm sure she will miss you because you seem like such a sweetheart. But your new Mom and family will love you too. Mom #1 will still be able to see you and read about your great adventures everyday! Can't wait to "meet" you!

  29. George looks like he fell asleep in the middle of playtime, Hank looks handsome as always and Alan looks like his channeling Eeyore

  32. This photos are great, good that they made it in a special post!
    Lucky you, that you sort through your pictures and are able to throw away the bad. I can only trash the very very very bad ones.

    Lucy, I´m sorry for you Mom1 and happy for your Mom2. But don´t worry, I had myself two moms. Everything is going to be alright!
