Santa Andy

So the rogue outlaw has turned out to be anything but.  So much so that I've given him the name Andy because he reminds me of my old horse Handy, who also came with an actual bad reputation, not just for being a brat.

The weather has been crazy warm and everyone was out enjoying it today.  Stella came over to help me decorate the sorely neglected Wool House and then we pulled out some Santa hats and introduced Andy to "how things work around here".  He had a blast :-).


First one out the gate.


"Cookies?  Got it!"


"Wear a silly hat and pose for pictures?  No problem!"


"Go out the other door to see if we could get some pictures with all the spring green grass?  I'll be the first one out again!"


"Back in to beg for more cookies?  I think I like this game!"


"He's a quick learner and I'm a good teacher." (See Graham's legs in the reflection?)


"This is the Wool House.  This is where the spinning wheels and looms are."


"Wow!  It's just like I always dreamed about."


He gave 20 a full introduction, but fat Graham was blocking all those pictures ;-).


Lots to check out.


"Well, I'll be..."


"This was as fun as you said it would be!"


Everyone needs a good friend (see T-Bone and Hickory in the background :-).

There will be a Christmas Eve cookie party tonight.  I'm not sure if I'm up for a video, but we'll see.  Don't forget to notice the moon.  It was gorgeous coming up over the front field this evening!

Here is a fun "practice puzzle" for my fellow puzzle junkies. I'm planning a Big Puzzle for tomorrow :-D.

Andy looks like a bit of smarty pants. A very bright expression indeed! Merry Christmas to him and Graham Lamb, and to all the woolly and not so woolly inhabitants of Punkin's Patch. :)

Merry Christmas!! I laughed and laughed, my cold came back and so I needed a good laugh. Santa Andy indeed. GOOD vibes at your house/ranch/barn/wool house/sheepfold :)

What a sweet, serene face!! Perhaps he was just being rogue so he could come to live with you. Looks like he just moved in and took over the porch, Cheerio box, cookie box and Grammy pets and scratches. What a lovey boy!!

Merry Christmas, Hope you all have a lovely, restful day. Andy has a sweet face and a wonderful smile. He feels he has just landed in the best home possible. Graham is being the best"big brother" to show him around.

These pictures say it all. Look at that green grass!

Patti said...

Merry Christmas to you! Great blog today, thank you, and can't wait to do the puzzle! Your sheep are the best.

Gloria said...

Merry Christmas! Andy is wonderful. Looks like he will fit right in.
Thanks for sharing.

It's uncanny how he went from wild to tame and tractable. You know.... he might be Punkin or another sheepie come back, but you don't breed so the stork dropped him at the next nearest farm and he had to stay available until you'd find him and bring him home again. That's why he fits in so quick and easy. What a great Christmas present for all!

Thank you for this entertaining post! What a wonderful new addition Andy is to the Punkin's Patch flock. Such sweet pictures of Andy and mentor Graham. I hope you had a very Merry Christmas. Thank you for the puzzle; I just finished it and boy oh boy I sure do need practice! Looking forward (groan....) to the "big one"!
