We lost our beloved barn cat yesterday. Not yet 9 years old, he was born here at Run*A*Round. We gave it our best shot to get him through an illness, but we lost the fight. We will miss our handsome boy...

Nothing says warmer weather, here, than the awakening of scorpions. Biting flies? Buzzing bees? Vexing gnats? Whatever... Try sorting paperwork on the floor of your office, sometime, with the help of these beasties...

Michelle from It's a Small Town Life! Michelle (previously known as 'Farmchick') is a wonderful, long-time blogger friend, so I'm pleased to have pulled her name from the hat to win this Female Cardinal drawing. Michelle, this bird will be on its way to Smalltownland, Kentucky, soon!
Thanks, again, to all who entered and commented. I'll be working on something for April (soon, I hope!)
A few more photos from late January.

|Instead of titling their ranch gate, these folks opted for fancy off-side gate signage.|
You might remember one of their random fence panels from this past Monday's Just One Barn post.
|This reminded me of 'The Big W' from 'It's A Mad-Mad-Mad-Mad World'|
|Except this time, the big tree is behind the W, not part of it.|

Now that I have your attention, I'll use this post as a cell phone photo dump, of sorts. The steamy scenes were from the end of January. A foggy, cool morning, steam was rising off Zim's butt as he ate his breakfast in the barn.
The next few scenes are from February. We've not had any further interlopers invading our back pasture from across the creek/woods. However, Next Door Neighbor ended up with a young stud in her pasture for a couple of days. It took us and another elderly neighbor about 2 hours one day to chase him back across the fenceline and get it re-wired up, again.
While back there, saw Mr. Longhorn that had previously worn the hammock tangled across his horns. He was looking much freer and more comfortable this visit. Sorry for the shots into the sun, but I wasn't going to try to find a better angle from his side of the fence.
Finally, a few shots from March. These were taken from the barn loft window while I was hanging out with Tuxedo one afternoon. The pond received more good rain and run-off this month. Things are greening up nicely.

Some days, these ducks just make me laugh...

Last year, I posted Gem running the trail around the pond as Ghost Horse. Several of you compared the photos to a Bev Doolittle painting. Seems Gem was up for a repeat performance this year.
