"Feral ~ from feminine of ferus wild: having escaped from domestication and become wild"...




Sunday

We wont give up.











This coming week, 

we are looking at Balers... 

again.







 to replace this one we lost to the fire last summer.







 but we did get this done.





and soon the ground will be soft enough 

to fence




all the fences that
burned,
snapped,
broke
from the fire last summer.





the rains that didnt come last year



should come next month,

this year.


 and things will grow.





they WILL grow.




and life will be green,




again.

  6. I liked the Farmer ad too. I will really like it when the rain arrives and a bit of green returns to your world. Handsome log shelter built by Mr. Feral . . .

  7. Love love love that horse shelter- well done! I love your optimism and hope and yes, it will be green again. Lots of things to love in this post, like the pensive photos of Mr. Foresterman and the great one of Dexter Dog- and that Farmer commercial. Kudos to Dodge for having the guts to give the glory to God (guts and glory) and for supporting the farmer.

  9. Favorite Super Bowl ad by far!
    Anyone can build such a wonderful log barn can certainly rise to the challenges you all face.

  15. OH OH OH I am so excited I can barely think I cried watching the Farmer commercial just like I cried watching the Beer Clydesdale Horse one they had which is circulating on the internet. Super Bowl quit making this Farmgirl cry.
    OK now back to my Farmers in Montana GREAT shelter it looks fantastic, you can see the attention to detail and hard work that went into it.Beautiful.
    Love the photos of Farmer Mr. Foresterman lookin' good:)
    It will be green again, it will rain and you will get that fence built and the new baler bought because You are Farmers and strong as nails my dear Feral friend and nothing will stop you both.
    Your photos blow me away......... HUGS BIG HUGS B

  17. Wonderful post, hoping this coming season of renewal blesses you and your husband, giving hope... love those silhouettes...

  18. What a heartache it must have been--after you got over the terror--to see the land and home you loved torched so mercilessly! But, Heaven willing, it WILL rain and the seeds will grow and there will be green. I do hope for a summer without dry grass and smokey skies and with fields of hay for your new baler. (love your photos of that long-legged cowboy)

  19. I have high hopes that this year will be a good one for everyone affected by the drought and fires of last summer. That's a beautiful shelter- love it!

  22. Great shelter! What a wonderful outlook. all that kept running through my mind was this song lyric
    "Well I won't back down, no I won't back down
    You could stand me up at the gates of hell
    But I won't back down

    Gonna stand my ground, won't be turned around
    And I'll keep this world from draggin' me down
    Gonna stand my ground and I won't back down"

I am feral, so although I dont respond at all like most domesticated bloggers, I will try my best - Thank you for even wanting to leave a comment, as it may draw me out from the woods from whence I came!

Or under a rock, it depends most days...
