This is one of Sherry's favorite of Autumn on the weekend. The kittens had ventured up the hill so she thought she could follow.

this is Eurus when he arrived home from Saskatoon. I am not that short, he is just a very tall horse.

Autumn playing with Winston

Since the whirlwind trip to Saskatoon, it has been a very busy week.Eurs has settled in well in his new digs.It was Thanksgiving and we had 2 out of 3 kids home. Robert came up from Medicine Hat and our youngest Cara managed to find some time to spend with us out at the cottage. Brian and the 2 of them did some fall clean up. Raked and disposed of all the leaves, put the boat away for another year and positioned the snowmobiles to the front of the garage for easy access oncce the snow arrives. Helped Sherry (FV) wean the babies and also ran up the calves to be tagged and readied for the truck. Had fun, although I haven't run that much in a long time, so I was definitely feeling it. It was a good feeling though. I did some good exercise and got some fresh air and was able to burn off a little built up stress. Also our little girl Autumn got to meet Winston and Skeeter. Winston was a saint with her but Skeeter never was one for young pups.Took Winston a bit but wasn't long before he was down on his back playing with her. She also met some of the kittens and couldn't figure out why they wouldn't play with her like Elliott the cat did. Sherry also guided me through the procedure of giving Autumn her second set of shots. She is such a good girl. Pretty much house trained now. Hasn't had an accident in the house and has been left alone twice now and no problem. She sleeps about 7 or 8 hrs a night and I can leave the door open and she doesn't wander the house. So till next time, enjoy the beautiful "autumn" Ha ha

Thanks again for the help with the momas and babies (cows and horses) you were definitely on a roll with the calves , nice because I was already a hurtin' unit! I did send you that shot of Autumn on the hill didn't I?

yes, but I didn't save individual pictures from the file you sent before I posted, so when I went to load a picture, the whole file loaded. I have now gone through them and saved certain ones to my pictures.

SO cute!
Did Eurus add some inches of growth? He does look bigger:)

Yay for 7-8 hours of puppy sleeping!

Autumn is just adorable!! And that pic of Winston on his back playing with the pup is priceless!! What a good "uncle" he is!! Eurus certainly has grown up and matured since the last time I saw him...he's a handsome fellow! Looks like you had a nice holiday with family and friends. What could be better?
