Rocky's Barn Visit

I think a barn counts as outdoors. So I'm linking up with A Southern Daydreamer for "Outdoor Wednesday". Take a look at everyone's blogs after looking at mine (of course : ))

Yes, it's my day off but I had to deliver Michele's birthday gift to her because I won't see her on Thursday. I had Rocky in the car from when I had taken him shopping with me! Michele was working with Satire in the arena when Rocky and I arrived.

The arena is terrible dusty from not being able to water it in the frigid temps. By Thursday, the arena hose should be thawed out and I'm hoping to get it done then.

Rocky watches and sniffs . . . and sniffs and watches.

He should remember horses because when he was young and was at the trainer (for hunting), they hunted him on horseback. They use horses with the English pointers because they are far running dogs and so fast.

Satire's not impressed.

Well, come-on!

The rest of these pictures are blurry; sorry! Rocky is just too fast moving in this barn light with my point and shoot camera!
Look at Preacher's ears! He looks threatening but really wasn't.

Echo's head is almost bigger than my whole doggie!!

Sniff, sniff

Rocky isn't all that impressed either. He gets much more excited over a chipmunk!


  1. Shirley,
    Love the photos...horses and an English Pointer? Perfect! My son's pup is now 6 months old and driving him crazy! He found a dog park and every night they go and play for as long as they can....she is a lemon. Rocky is beautiful!!!!!! Sandy

  2. Great photos, Shirley. Looks like you and Rocky had a great day off! So much for staying home and vegging out. Love all the horse photos. Rocky is such a good boy. His tail was sure wagging. Love the photos with the dust in the barn. Happy Birthday to Michele on Thursday!
    Hugs- Tete
