Fort Smooch


The hay stack on the back porch has provided Smooch with a welcome diversion this winter,



say nothing of a soft, warm spot to park her butt.


Her vantage point from high atop Fort Smooch 
affords a strategic advantage against invaders on all sides...


...including me. I've panicked a few times lately thinking she's disappeared from the back yard, 
only to find her sitting quietly atop the stack.



At the rate I've been feeding the herd, the stack will be gone in a few weeks
and I'll start pulling bales from the hay barn.



Smooch has asked me to leave what remains so she can hold down the fort.

  4. I love Fort Smooch. How adorable is this?
    This way she can have her fort and foe to ward off all in the same local.

  6. It does seem a shame to totally dismantle her fort! She's is so enjoying it.

  7. We would get bales of soil mix that we would stack. That was our favorite place to sit too.

  8. What a great place to hang out. I'd kinda like to be up there with her. Glad she made peace with the steer head. :-)

  11. My best friend's parents owned a horse farm in So California and we had the best times making hay forts...until one day we discovered a Mama RAT and her babies. That was the end of two summers playing in hay forts! Poor Smooch is going to lose her personal hay fort. I feel for her.

  12. Plus it looks good, too! I would leave it all year round if you could. It does look like fun...but I'd probably fall in and get stuck :-O
