Show & Tell Fiday...Double D Ranch

Show and Tell Friday

Double D Ranch and some of it's critters...

What would life be without room to run and keep a bunch of crazy animals?


This is the "Double D" of Double D Ranch...Doug and me! (Dalyn)

Our four horses on the ranch.
Kito, Fancy, Foxy, and Legacy.

A hen and her chicks free ranging in the pasture. Good meat and good eggs. Love my chickens!

Kito, the magnificant- half Arab and half Saddlebred. He's small and extremely handsome. He's as gentle as a puppy and very curious, intelligent, and nice to have around.

One of Kissin' Kate's daughters, Glory. Isn't she cute? Her sire is Handome Rob, a red roan buck. Her dam's sire was a blue roan. I'm kinda liking the two blue roan does I got this past spring. Unusual and beautiful girls. I named them Blu Pearl and Opal.

No Place Like Home blog is hosting Show and Tell Friday if you would like to participate.


  1. What a beauty Kito is! My sil used to raise chickens and I got hooked on fresh eggs -- good stuff!!

  2. I love the chicks with their momma. How precious!


  3. What a wonderful, wonderful day's outing at the ranch. I love all the animal photos -- I'm a farmer's granddaughter so this all brought back fond memories of my youth!!

    Great Show N Tell.

  4. All I can say is, you must not have any "free time"--of course when you love animals and stuff I suppose that is a freedom in and of itself. ;-)

  5. Love your farm animals. I miss living on a farm so much:(



  6. This post makes me wish I could have my dream of living on a farm/ranch. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Hi Dalyn,

    I just found your link on Julie's sight. You have a wonderful blog. I knew from the title I'd like it.

    We raise oberhalslies. We were out late last night, being assistant midwives at a kidding for a friend. She has a nubian who was mated to an angora/boer cross and baby was big. I kept telling myself if Herriot could do it, we could to.

    Blessings to you in all of your plans for the new year.
