Tree trimming crew

Zim and Gem partake of the oak leaves in the front pasture.




Plucking the low-hanging fruit, so to speak.

Mmmm I wonder what oak leaves taste like! Zim and Gem look like they find them very tasty.

Gail said...

I notice mine take a bite of this and that...I'm sure there is some inherited knowledge of what they need but I am equally sure some of this has a terrible flavor.

Kerri said...

I didn't realize they would eat leaves off trees .... hmmmmm .... very interesting!

Hound Girl said...

Can they come over and trim my trees?! :)

Pam said...

Wow they can trim and fertilize all at the same time.. I could use a crew like that Theresa, how many carrots do they charge?

Smiles n hugs,
Pam i am :D

Roan said...

I wonder what oak leaves taste like. Hmmm. This time you've put a tree in front of it...cool. ;)

Betty Manousos@ Cut and Dry said...

Zuzana said...

Beautiful horses, riding is my passion, or rather was, when I was younger, but I am hoping to pick it up again.;)
Love your *about me* description.;)
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and for your kind words.;)

Flora said...

Great Looking Crew!!

Liesl said...

My horses love mulberry and mango tree leaves! I love that oak tree! The horses are looking so relaxed and happy!

Melodie said...

All of our critters seem to like the oak leaves too!

Kathy said...

Those green leaves probably taste pretty good to them but I hope they don't eat any acorns.

Woody said...

Tree leaves in, fertilizer out, a perfect machine!

Sandra said...

I am wondering about their "pay scale" since we have a couple of trees that need trimming.

KAT said...

love the photos of your lovely horses. I like the way the branches look and the weathered fence board too. super nice !

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Looks tasty. And like a nice spot to scratch your back.

Desiree said...

Marvellous pictures! Oh, what a glorious life you seem to lead with your beautiful horses and wonderful dogs on your very own, entrancing ranch. Thank you for sharing your world with us.

Judy said...

Your horses are so beautiful T!

Jill said...

Such a perfect combo with the trees, fence and your gorgeous horses. Do you ride?

Chatty Crone said...

Gorgeous horses - just beautiful! sandie

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

too funny... the oak is a tough tree to have leaves at all w/ no rain down there =0

Jan n Jer said...

Huh..I didn't know horses ate tree leaves...guess I have been living under a rock for too long!!! Great shots, they look like they are enjoying them!

latebloomerbuds said...

Such cuties they are. I want a horse! Okay, I'll just enjoy the horses that belong to others. One 50 pound wheaten terrier is enough for me at this point. Now, if I had a ranch...

XO, Margie

Montanagirl said...

Love these with the branches and horses. Good work!

euthymic said...

The horses look so peaceful. I love how the shot is taken of them through the trees:)

Louise said...

Mmmmmmm, those lovely oak leaves, and maybe even some acorns!

Debbie said...

providing a necessary service, earning their keep??

missing moments said...

Such natural trimmers!

barbara l. hale said...

Yum! A horsey delicacy. Love that third pic especially.

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

I always love seeing photos of your beautiful horses! These shots are great!

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

I feel so dumb; I had no idea horses ate leaves. Is that a Live Oak tree? Their branches usually hang really low.

Deb said...

I love your horses...they are so pretty...

Dawn said...

*Hay!* ;)
I have a tree trimming crew down the hill too. Yours look more polite than mine.

Bob Bushell said...

I hope that the trimming crew will leave some for Zim and Gem.

Farm Girl said...

I can't believe how hot that picture still looks. Today was the first morning I could see my breath when I went outside. Yay, I don't expect it to last but it was nice this morning.

Julie G. said...

Gorgeous landscaping artists!

grammie g said...

Hi Teresa...The four legged trimmers are the best...they get the work done and they get payed in food! ; }}

lisa said...

Perfect title and great photos!
Pur tree trimming crew are the deer!

Manzanita said...

What a crew and they cost less than those guys who come in with the cherry pickers.

Sall's Country Life said...

These two could've shot a little higher than tree trimming as a profession...they're more suited for a career in modeling.

Lynne said...

I am inviting "your two" over to our place. We need some "tree trimming" done, pronto!
(Love the gray tones and shadows.)

Giga said...

Ciekawe, czy im te liście dębu smakują ? Chyba tak, bo na dolnych gałązkach ich mało. Śliczne zdjęcia. Pozdrawiam

Sylvia K said...

Always love the shots of Zim and Gem because they look so much like the two I had years ago! Still miss them, but I'd have trouble finding room for them in my apartment these days! Enjoy your day!

Sylvia

Robin said...

T, what a nice convenient treat! Don't even have to bend over to eat it!

laurak@forestwalkart said...

what a beautiful landscape crew!!

Fjällripan said...

Great trimmers you have! They are so beautiful, your horses.

Michael Manning said...

What stunning and absolutely beautiful horses you are blessed to have! I miss riding the Chestnut Arabian who made my summer here so special!

wayside wanderer said...

Looks like they might be busy for awhile. Sure wish I had a big tree like that!

Pricilla said...

Harumph! They hardly know how to trim a tree. You need a goat to do the job right!

pattisjarrett said...

I've never been around horses, didn't know they had pruning capabilities. Thanks for sharing yours beauties with me. I love seeing what they're up to.

Nezzy said...

I could sure use your tree trimmin' crew 'round here!!! Heeheehe!

God bless ya and have a remarkable day!!! :o)

mick said...

Great photos of the horses and the dappled shade under the trees.

Andrew said...

They really are lovely to see...
I love the fence shots but when you leant on it to get the close ups the pics were superb xx

Karen said...

Yummers, if you're a horse! I didn't know they would eat leaves.

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

I'm envious of your green leaves and sunshine!!

bj said...

I had NO IDEA horses ate leaves...grass and horse feed is all I ever knew about. I am SUCH a woohs...so worthless. I was born in Dallas, lived right in the middle of it until 8, then moved to a smaller town but sitll ....in the middle of town...so I don't know straight up from down about ......well...critters. :))))
I've already learned some things from you, tho.:)

bj said...

Oh, and meant to say I am sure lookiing forward to your Nov giveaway..I don't even know what it is yet but got my fingers crossed anyway.:))

bj said...

Well, shoot, I can't seem to get finished here today...
wanted to ask if it's ok to take Leontien's name to my sidebar to add to the list of cancer fighters and survivors so we can pray for them?

Kari in Vegas said...

They are quite helpful

Stop on by for a visit

georgettesullins said...

Aren't they smart?! I guess horses aren't colorblind and recognize green when they see it.

Hilary said...

What a handsome crew!

Grant said...

Adorable.

bailey-road.com said...

Great shots!

Ms. Becky said...

they're lovely, and it looks like summer there! happy weekend to you.

Carole Meisenhelter said...

looking like a lot of fun for them; there's obviously something rather beneficial in those leaves and branches...

Joe said...

Our oak leaves are a lot easier to get to...they're mostly all on the ground :).

Pat Tillett said...

It's nice of them to keep these trees trimmed for you! Very nice pics of your horses...

Candy C. said...

It's a good thing it's a really BIG tree! We had to put a fence around our young Arizona Ash tree to keep the horse and the goats from eating it!

eileeninmd said...

You a beautiful crew of tree trimmers. It is great you get to save money from hiring a real crew.
Great shots and I love your horses.

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

They must be a lot quieter than the Asplundh crews the electric company hires around here:@)

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

Yummy! lol. :)

Gone Country said...

Mmmm, tasty! Nice looking tree trimmers too!

Michaele said...

So, I keep wondering when your leaves are going to turn and fall. You do have fall in Texas right?

Farmchick said...

I love the look of these guys through the tree branches.

SweetMarie said...

I just love your beautiful horses!

黄清华 Wong Ching Wah said...

I like the shots of horses behind the trees !

Randy said...

Good looking crew you have there.

Barbara said...

Paula said...

Beautiful! Have a good day tomorrow.

Annette said...

You need some goats! :)

Gillian Olson said...

Interesting pictures, I didn't know horses ate tree leaves before.

Rose said...

Do they eat the acorns, too?

reanaclaire said...

Very lovely pictures here! I guess the horses love to graze around ...

SquirrelQueen said...

They look like a pretty hard working crew to me. Do they work cheap?

Chinatours said...

Nice to see them again, the same energetic as before.

Marie said...

Lovely photos...they look so content!

Millie said...

Oh yummy! I love oak leaves!

littlethingsoflife said...

Always enjoy your horsie photos, TWG -- and also your unique captions! :)

I thought only silly goats like mine ate leaves like that! Your tree trimmers are so much more graceful! Beautiful through the trees!

Mary Howell Cromer said...

heyBJK said...

I've never known horses to pass up a free meal...unless it was just nasty.
