An Afternoon on the Farm

Aug
25


Dog days on the farm…… I’ve been (finally) learning how to use iMovie on my laptop (which I’ve had for a year!). Transferring video to another computer with the old program I used to make movies was difficult, which is why I haven’t posted any videos in months. With farm babies here, I got motivated, so I’m practicing. This video includes footage of Mr. Pibb trying (SO HARD) to get Nutmeg’s attention. (Fruitlessly.) The dogs in their standard position at the top of the porch steps. Chickens. More chickens. And baby goats–playing, leaping, and suckling mama.




I also posted this video earlier today of the ducks playing in their baby pool.

    I love them all! The kids are especially cute…bounce ~ bounce ~ bounce… oh I forgot I’m almost starved!
    Turn the sound up, and it almost feels like I’m there. What kind of ducks are the white ones? I recognize the male mallards, but I’ve always just called the white ones ‘farm ducks’!

    I’m pretty sure that I heard Ntumeg tell Mr. Pibb “not tonight, I have a headache…….”. :happyfeet:

    I think I owe you an apology Miss Suzanne. I saw the duck video on Facebook today, and was thinking it was from another blog I follow – Life on a Southern Farm, and I may have commented, using FarmerPam’s name instead of yours – that’s what happens when I don’t read thoroughly and follow too many farming blogs – sorry about that – love the duck video – I am waiting for them to start Marco Polo! Great video of your afternoon – Casper is getting huge! And always good to see Boomer and CoCo. Take care, from Fayette Co KY.

    linda, it’s just my opinion (I’m not a dog expert!) but I would not have a Great Pyr in the city. They need a lot of room. They’re big dogs. They have instincts to guard, and they will bark at night also and that would bother neighbors. Great Pyrs are working dogs and the instincts are very strong. Coco will just SIT and stare out into the woods and growl and bark. She has no training to behave that way, she just does it by the breeding. I don’t think that would go over real good in a neighborhood.

    Love the videos! But I think you need another kiddie pool. That one looks pretty crowded!

    Oh, no – LauraBlue beat me to it! Yep, Mr. Pibb, Nutmeg has a headache…. I love watching the babies! They know what they want, when they want it, but Queen Clover knows how to get away when she’s had enough!

    Not to whine, but I haven’t seen any photos of all your cats for a long time. Do you still have them?I love the photos and videos. I like to see how other people keep their animals.

    Yes, we have all our cats! I was just thinking this evening about how I needed to do a new photo shoot on Kitten and Little!

    Mr. Pibb is breaking my heart with his play to win her affection. My what a stuck up lil’ snob she is.

    And all dogs have breed characteristics, but they can also be trained to behave in a way that is conducive to their environment. You just have to know what their natural abilities are and work from there – no one should be scared off from owning a breed of dog “because” – it is the owner that makes the dog [I mean that in the best way possible – I have met some very loving pits and rotties – and my chessie is a testament to raising]. Everyone has their own experience, true, but dogs [as pets] shouldn’t be pigeonholed by the breed. They come in all forms.

    Your ducks sure do enjoy their pool…and they’re safe there. The lil kids jumping are so adorable, too. Good job on the video.

    These videos are just the best. I almost feel like I’m on the farm today. Brings back wonderful memories of my growing up on a farm.

    Suzanne, are you using a video camera to record these, or the video component on a smart phone, or what?

    Betty, I just use my regular camera (Canon SX20 IS) on the video setting.

    The ducks (in their instant pond)look soooo much happier than the last batch, and safer too! Good job on the videos.

    I think the regular ducks want the part crashers out of the pool. These two v ideos were really entertaining.

    You have got to get footage of the cutest ducky dance ever. When my sister’s Peking duck Jack is in a mud puddle, she stomps her little webbed feet like she is Jennifer Beals in Flashdance! :snoopy:

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
