Available Cavachons – Maggie & Ricky’s Babies

UPDATE 10-29-11

Maggies babies are 4 weeks old now. They are getting active and playful with each other. “Tank” from Molly’s litter is just part of the family. He is sold to Marilyn E.

Enjoy the updated photos of the two apricot girls and the solid sable boy, and “Tank”.

The females are a light apricot color, which may lighten as they get older.

I could call the girls a “honey” color, or light apricot!  The sable boy has stunning markings as well!

Here is a quick look at the new babies. I’ll add more info once I’m home at my regular computer.

Maggie’s 3 babies plus “Tank”, the blenheim male from Molly’s litter because he was so much bigger than his littermates.

There is 1 solid sable male, 2 honey or light apricot females, and “Tank”!

Winter is Coming

We’re getting a heavy frost each night now.

We have a fire in each wood stove now.

We dress in layers now.

Winter is coming and things are happening around here so we will be prepared.

The Woodman has been busy getting wood.  I think this is his favorite time of the year.  He’s made friends with a neighbor that owns thousands of acres, and has permission to get any downed logs.  I think he even got permission to cut a few trees down here and there as well.  I don’t think anything would have made him much happier. 

20111029-091120.jpg

This is the view out my living room windows.  These are fairly massive piles of logs.  There is still a lot of work to do before this wood can be burned in the wood stoves!

The horses are waiting for their breakfast.  They make just the perfect couple, Shinanigan and Slick.  They are exactly the same color, but Shinanigan is prettier and flashier, and that’s the way it should be.

This is the view of the log pile just outside the back door.  The second pile is directly behind this one, and the third log pile is still on the trailer.

This is the view just outside my front door.  Wood is a very important resource right now, and for the next 6-7 months. 

20111029-091155.jpg

This is the little roof over the wood outside the front door.  It’s covered with frost this morning, as is the garden.  The fall colors are beautiful right now as well!  We took out the square foot garden boxes that were in the garden.  If somebody wants 8 beautiful 4 x 4 boxes, just let me know!

We are officially putting the garden to “sleep” this year.  The Woodman has been hauling horse manure up from the pasture and spreading it all over the garden.  I guess he has big plans for next spring.  I have some big plans too.

20111029-091224.jpg

The sunflowers are drying over the garden fence.  I’m not sure they were mature enough, but perhaps there will be something for the birds to enjoy!

20111029-091236.jpg

The fall colors are peeking out all over the place.  I love this time of year!

My feet were frozen when I got back into the house this morning.  It’s pretty easy to tell which footprint I left on the front porch!

Let’s Remember a Bit of Summertime

My mind is preparing for winter. There is nothing I can do to hold it back. Like it or not, it will happen, and according to weather experts, it sounds like it could be one with more snow than usual.

I was looking through my phone today and found these photos.  This was a fun evening.  Shinanigan had her first experience in the lake and she didn’t love it, but didn’t hate it either.  Kaelyn had a great time trying to get her to go deep enough in the water so she would be forced to swim.  Each time Shinanigan got deep enough to need to swim, she would turn toward shore, and bounce back onto the beach, with Kaelyn hanging onto her mane for dear life! 

We all enjoyed watching the show and finally, watching the sunset.
