Wild Wednesdays – Bull Elk

One of my blog goals for 2015 is to post “Wild Wednesdays” highlighting the wild life on our property as well as our wild horses. It’s always amazing to me how beautiful morning coffee is around here… and evening time wine. Most of these photos were taken from our back deck, a perfect pairing with a nice cup of macadamia nut roast coffee or glass of my favorite Syrah.

These elk were very interested in our horse feed and were giving the horses a hard time. I chased them off of the bale last week and we haven’t seen them since. It’s warmed up a bit, so it doesn’t necessarily mean we’ve seen the last of them…

Suggestions on anything else you’d like to see more of or learn more about are most welcome as I finalize my blogging plan for the year.

Hope you will enjoy “Wild Wednesdays” as much as we enjoy this wild life.

  1. oooooooooooooooooh, oooooooooooooh, HOW BEAUTIFUL , Lord who would need wine when you got something like that to look at from you pouch , but it doesn’t hurt to have a good glass of wine to go with that beautiful view .. Do you get one of those Elks for food? Elk meat is soooo good !! I don’t really have any idea’s for your blog? … You probably could start having kids then that way you could send pictures of them 😉 Thank You for sharing you & Clays wonderful life enjoy totally .Later Love Uncle Leo & Aunt Judy

  2. I’d love to hear more about your composting efforts. Boring for most followers, I’m sure, but being a fellow cold climate composter up in AK I’d like to hear if you’re able to get finished compost quicker than two years. That’s why I have three piles going at all times in various stages of decomp. Also, advice on laying hens in cold weather. Specifically, how to prevent the heat and feed in the winter from costing so much that the eggs average $8 a dozen. (Just a random dollar amount there, no evidence to back it up.) I’m looking forward to hearing about your garden. I’m sure your research and efforts will give me ideas on how to handle the spring joy/effort of hundreds of seedlings started, transplanted, and bustled back and forth from outside to inside depending on the weather.

    • Thanks for the feedback Jess! Yes, composting has proven difficult in the northern climate, but I have a neighbor who is a composting guru that I hope to glean some secrets from this summer. I will definitely share 🙂 I will do more on my winter chicken keeping as it’s been a huge learning process this year, and as always, gardening will be a huge focus as it’s my favorite farm hobby.
