When you live on a small horse farm there are always chores to do.  I personally am not allowed near horse droppings because I think it’s a buffet made in Heaven and sent down just for me.  Because of this minor flaw in my otherwise impeccable judgement, Atticus helps Mom every day. 

First they feed and put the horses outside.  Then the real work begins.  For Atticus, at least.  While Mom mucks out the stalls, Atti keeps watch over their little part of the world:

The Sentinal

 Next the stalls are swept and refreshed, new hay is put in, and water buckets filled.

And Atticus waits patiently, and keeps watch over Mom.

You’ll notice he is keeping his stall ball within handy distance.  This is not an all work and no play situation.  But he is a patient guy.  He likes to sit quietly and watch the world go by.

After chores,  a rousing game of throw and fetch with Mom and his ball will ensue.  Then they usually go for a well deserved walk through the fields and woods.

And then comes Atti’s favorite part of the day-

Ahhhh... a days' work well done.

It makes him so happy to find a pile of snow to lay in.  For just that reason, I wish for my handsome and loyal friend a winter that goes on forever. 
While I’m in a parallel universe in Hawaii!

About onecoolgriff

Hello to all my friends! My name is Rambo and I'm a Petite Brussels Griffon living in Michigan. My family is a bit diverse, and we love all the exciting things that can happen when you live in a small zoo. Included in my family are five dogs (two more Griffs, although Pearlie Blue is really a Pug-Griff I think, and Jemmie the diva; Atticus the Rottweiler aka Atticus the Bratticus, and Buddy the incredibly-old-but-still-getting-around whatever kind of dog), two cats that the peeps call Barn Cats, making them a bit more mysterious than a "regular" cat; three VERY BIG horses, and of course my two peeps, Mom an Dad. I love being a little Griff in a big world. Everyday is an adventure and my job is to find the usual things and make them unusual. Never a problem! I'll be sure to let you know whenever I find something new and exciting.
