Ask, and it will be given

to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.  Matt. 7:7-8 NKJV

Sonny L of trees

Abba, Father, I am asking, not for myself but for the animals: abundant green pastures, winter and summer shelter, no piles of limbs and broken trees brought down by storms, no ankle-deep mud, no barbwire.  Instead please provide pipe fencing which safely allows the horses and cattle to commune again, and bless me the pleasure of telling their story, Your story. I delight in all that You are and You have promised to give me the desires of my heart (Ps. 37:4). You said nothing is impossible (Luke 1:37). I believe.

Sonny finishes grain with down trees behind

Sonny believes in sharing

as long as the sharing is with Holly

Holly has learned Sonny gets two helpings of grain

In an effort to stimulate weight gain Sonny has been receiving two helpings of grain in the morning along with a cup of alfalfa pellets.

Sonny shares his grain with Holly

Foxy Holly has learned when she finishes her ration and meanders down Sonny’s way he will share with her. And she does not really need any extra. Workers installing our HVAC system said they had never seen a bovine with such a flat topped backside.

Not only canines Peek and Sam watch the HVAC installation but so does The Brahma Sonny

 

While the cabin has a fireplace unit that has provided some heat when the temperature drops as it did last night, it has not been sufficient to make our home toasty.
And during the last few days temperatures have reached the mid-80’s. Even with windows open and two ceiling fans, it was a  might too warm inside.
All that was remedied today when the heating and air conditioning installers attached an outdoor unit to our small living space.
Yesterday I created a dog run with the gate yet to be mounted knowing the installers would need access to the bedroom with the electrical panel where canines Peek and Sam stay.  The dog run was secure enough for the work to go forward and be completed today.

This weekend is filled with joy and sunshine. Our move completed by day’s end Friday all tasks ahead seem lightweight by comparison.

Oh there is a creosote post to place, some wire to tighten, contents of plastic containers to sort, writing, photography and advertisers to obtain to sustain us.

Most importantly all 18 pals are safe and becoming acquainted with their new surroundings.
