Weekly Photo Challenge -Converge

A barn is a place of meeting and joining. We come from all different directions, all different experiences and all different potentials. No one knows how it will be; who will shine brightest, who will leave us too soon. We live in horse time, we live...

Weekly Photo Challenge -Angular.

Farms are not very angular places and I will admit, my eyes are drawn to curves and not angles. Llamas are the closest we get to angular animals: straight backs, perpendicular necks, directional ears. They have an angled silhouette that is easy to re...

Weekly Photo Challenge – Achievement

We’ve been fifteen years on this little farm now and each of us has days to brag about. In the end, at the bedtime walk thru when all things are equal, I think our greatest achievement is simply finding our way home. Anna Blake, Infinity Farm.

Waiting out the storm with the Dogs of War.

Have I mentioned that even on this scale--war is hell.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Cover Art.

What a strange idea for the photo challenge. Except for the fact I’ve been throwing ideas around for a book cover. You see, I’ve been working on a manuscript for a book for the last 18 months. I am finishing the final edit right now. It h...

Weekly Photo Challenge: Adventure

  Morning chores with Tomboy, the briard. It’s more of an adventure for some of us than others but she’s right. It’s good to be reminded: There is a fresh new world out there every day. Chase some varmints and protect your herd...

A Muck Meditation on Barn Swallows.

I feel sorry for people who don’t muck. How do they organize their thoughts? Or come up with creative training options? Or share peace of heart with the herd? This time of the year the barn swallows are very busy. They might be my favorite bird...

Weekly Photo Challenge: On Top

The thing about being both a rescue dog and a herding dog, is that you’ve already lost your herd once at least, and you sure need to stay on top of things with every ounce of your ability, because it would be the worst possible thing to fail at...

Weekly Photo Challenge: Joy

 It’s Walter the Corgi, in case you don’t recognize him from this angle. The game is a combination of snowboarding and snow angel creation. He takes a speedy run and launches to a long jump, taking a quarter turn in mid-air, like a jet,...

“What should young people do with their lives today? Many things, obviously. But the most daring thing is to create stable communities in which the terrible disease of loneliness can be cured.” -Kurt Vonnegut.  Infinity Farm is just that kind of...

Weekly Photo Challenge: Horizon

The horizon separates the earth from the sky, and in some ways, the physical world from the dream world. The two nestle closely here, and the closer the dream rests by the reality, the more you know you are home. Sunset over Infinity Pond, with a toe...

Weekly Photo Challenge: Sea

  We live in a land-locked state, and my personal photo challenge requirement is that the photos be taken here on the farm. Sea should be a challenge, but our pond flooded 4 times this month, rising above fences and banks. By prairie standards,...

Weekly Photo Challenge: Nostalgia

My Grandfather Horse had an emergency vet call this week. He’s okay now, but I’ll be even more particular in his feeding, which is already very particular. His legs are thick and tired, and his eyesight is bad. He’s an old 26 this y...
