Horny Nibbler - I Heart Winter Photo Series

The other day on Lucy March's blog I got to pontificatin' about my love of Winter.  While discussing the joys of snowy country lanes and fuzzy deer I thought;  why not do a photo series? 

I'm pleased to present the "I Heart Winter" by Me.  I hope you enjoy my first piece in this series, playfully titled "Horny Nibbler". 





Horny Nibbler

Right up the road a piece (yup, that's a technical rural form of measurement) there is this eclectic little farm with an array of animals.  This fine specimen lives on aforementioned farm, and like his brethren has a penchant for escape. 

I was driving home one day when I happened upon a whole herd wandering on the road.  Luckily I had my trusty camera and I was able to get some great pics - including this one.  The snow is gently drifting down creating one of my favorite kind of days.  There is a sense of magic in the air, and I feel like I'm living in a snow globe. 

The tree my friend here is nibbling, the yard he is standing in and the house he is in front of is not where he lives.  This is the neighbor's yard.  Luckily, this particular house belongs to a family of Russian circus performers who love animals and are rarely home.  Naughty boy. ;)

Wait wait wait... the house belongs to a family of Russian circus people?! Yikes, I so need to come live with you for a while, if not for your neighborhood, than for the aspect of residing inside of a snow globe!
He is lovely, and I have GOT to share this post with Daniel, you'll have him at the title.
I am very much looking forward to this new series.

@Merrymac - Thank you, and thanks for dropping by. :) I have a few more pictures of this guy. He's a sweet beast, and a decent model. ;)

@Julie - Hand to God - Russian Circus People. One of their acts includes Poodles of all sizes. I could not make this stuff up!

I live in a very interesting little town. My sister is always on me about writing about it. Someday I'll get around to it. Someday.

I was pleased with title myself. I love it when stuff like that just works out. I'm looking forward to the new series, too. Not sure how long it'll be or the structure, but it'll be fun. :)

Thanks for the words of encouragement and praise!

Oh lordie he's a cutie pie! Looks NOTHING like the billy goat who used to chase me when I had the temerity to offer him clean water and fresh food.
