War Horse

   The other day was the first time I have seen the movie War Horse, starring Jeremy Irvine as the main character, Albert. I really love this movie, with all the beautiful scenery and inspirational story line. The movie starts out with Joey, the horse, being born and growing up. Joey and Albert share many happy moments growing up, from learning to ride with a saddle to racing a car. The strong bond between the two main characters is tested when money troubles cause the selling of Joey for the use of  the military. It's a really heartbreaking scene when Joey is taken away because you can just imagine the over-whelming sadness that must consume Albert. Probably my favorite part of the movie, and there are a huge selection to choose from, would have to be when Joey is being rescued by two men from opposite feuding armies. It's really touching to see them stop the fighting for a moment while a poor, lonely, and scared horse is being rescued. Overall, I'm very impressed by this movie and would definitely recommend it to any animal-loving person!

Feeding Frensy

      Two times a day, either my brother and I feed our beloved bunnies. On the menu for most mornings are a combination of either carrots, bread, apples or a combination. Night time consists of pellets, hay, water, and carrots. Hay and water are always bountiful, and occasional yogurt chips are a favorite by both Pie and Midnight!
     At night, both bunnies are shut in their little house until morning, when they are let out to play all day! When we come for the night time feeding, we are eagerly greeted by curious bunnies looking for some yummy treats.
     There is no fear of strangers present when Pie and Midnight spot some munchies! In the top right picture you can see Midnight eating right from my hand, and she will do this with just about anyone who is quiet enough to let her come in her own time.
     Here are some pictures of my adorable babies being their cute and curious selves!

St. Patrick's Day (A Little Late)



     Sorry for posting this so late but I've been very busy lately! These are some pictures from the St. Patrick's Day Parade that takes place everywhere in the town by which I live. Although it only lasts about 30 minutes, it's always fun to attend. Being from an Irish family, St. Patrick's Day is always a huge deal; bring out the corned beef, cabbage, Gaelic music and shamrock-covered apparel.
