Boysenberry's Posting of the Day

Sidenote from Boyse's dad: Boysenberry was watching the fish in the office and I happened to have a new post open and ready to write in.  While we were watching the Olympics she decided to do some posting of her own-she unknowingly was standing on the keyboard.  Let me know if you can make any sense of it.  It may contain the answers to all life's questions.  The first photo is of Boyse cuddling under her favorite fake fur blanket, the second is of her looking out the window watching the horsie boys and the last is with her big brother, Traveler, on the bed.  She has the cutest stumpie front legs!  A gem of a cat!

Somebody Else

Turn up your volume for the video link please:

So I was in the barn the other night, cleaning stalls 

and prepping food for the horses and Ms. Morgan 

Sophia Beasley came out of her stall 

for the first time (sort of) and into the aisle. The 

previous night she came out and quickly went 

back in. Well last night she was ready to explore. 

After over a month of near hibernation, only 

getting up from sleep; to eat, poop/pee and to 

get treats or be brushed she was coming out. 

She explored the barn, while the horses were 

outside, and found many tasty morsels of food 

all around. So where am I going with all this?  

Simply a story about our pig?  Nope...

Well, a few short months ago I was someone else. 

No I haven't changed as a person but my life, 

our life sure has. Who would have thought that 

I would be taking care of horses and coaxing a 

pig out of her stall! It's a pretty cool life...and boy 

am I ready for summer! Done with the cold.

The video above was taken at various points 

during the last week. It's of the boys as they 

enter the outdoor arena which is usually 

followed by running around and a bit of playful 

roughhousing, like a couple of brothers. 

Sometimes they really go wild. Wish I had gotten 

film of that. The second part of the video is of 

Morgan "vacuuming" the floor of the barn. All of 

it is so much fun to watch and yes I am in part, 

somebody else. A good thing.

The first song that is playing, Somebody Else, 

is from the perfect film, Crazy Heart, that is out 

now starring Jeff Bridges as a washed up, alcoholic 

country singer touring the country by himself. It is 

stunning and that is Jeff Bridges singing. He is a 

lock for the best actor oscar.  Take that to the 

bank! The second song is called I Don't Know, 

also from the movie. Pick up the soundtrack

It too is perfect! Get the deluxe edition...

And Then There Were Seven!

So if you remember a few weeks back in a post, that we introduced our barn cat, Wilco...well he is now our seventh house cat!  After much discussion about wanting to bring him in and struggling with the idea of this cat, most likely a house cat, as being a barn cat and the fact that he got himself stuck in the barn wall we brought him in.  He is a love!  We kept him in his own room for 1 week so that the girls could sense his presence.  We had been talking about letting him out and I went to check on him and his door was open...either my mom (who was visiting with him) or I had accidentally left it open.  Well, Clementine was sitting right next to him while Kate and Elephant wandered the floor.  Not sure where Ruby, Luna and Boysenberry were.  So that was that; Wilco had the run of the house!  It was quite easy and went off without a hitch.  Traveler loves him too.  He's (Wilco) a cat,  Traveler loves all cats.  Malamutes aren't supposed to love them.  Now he has a another boy to talk about girls with and Wilco has his own harem!  Yes people probably think that we are the crazy cat people and I feel like I should start wearing a house coat with cats tucked in pockets.  Ladies and Gentlemen, Wilco!
ps-doesn't he look like he has always been here?  He loves the house!
