Last Saturday

Thursday, February 21, 2013

I was out early, taking pictures, and had the chance to ride Rio before my eye flared up. So here are Saturday's pics.
Birds in my yard

Loki was following me around. Believe it or not, he doesn't chase the birds. He just enjoys following me around, and watches the dogs.


Warming up Rio.

My friend joined me with her horse

After we rode the horses, we let Rio out in the pasture area so he could nibble on the grass.

Rio likes my Hubby, and vice versa

While we were standing around we could hear two Woodpeckers. I could only get pictures of the female.

On the way home we saw a Red Shoulder Hawk

And Mama Hawk

Not far from our home we spotted an young Red Tail Hawk.

    The birds with the reddish breast I wonder what they are as I have never seen anything like them.

I love the horses they look like they are having fun.

Have a good weekend

    I am amazed the Loki does not go after the birds so nice. Love all the pictures, tried to get some of a woodpecker here, no way, can only get pictures through windows. emoticon
