An Afternoon Stroll

Beautiful weather here on the Prairies: above normal for this time of year!  The Hens and Rocky were outside all day, enjoying the good weather.  They are working over the spruce trees on the edge of their pasture, going after all the cones and pulling out the little seeds for a treat!  It's really quite charming to see Rocky guard all his ladies; he is ever vigilant, herding The Hens under the spruce trees if a magpie flies too close, pulling down some extra cones for the ladies.  When we approach the fence he is always between us and his girls until he is comfortable that we're okay and not intending any harm.  He only seems to relax when scratch is thrown, and he's just like a kid for a minute or two - going after the treats!
