Havalina Dinner Adventure


We have a feed trough made out of the top of an old industrial clothing press at our cabin that is used to feed many of the semi-wild animals that pass through looking for food. We turned the press upside down and anchored it to the ground. This havalina gent is one of a pair of stragglers that visit us often. We also get a larger group of fifteen or so havalina with their young that pass through plus an occasional fox.

We, along with several neighbors feed the havalina so they are not as aggressive as one might think. They know where the kitchen is.

Lets talk about the two sides of me. I am a Gemini just so you know. The first side of me is the cooking and entertaining part. This is a major part of my life and I wouldn't be fulfilled without it. Of course, we all have to eat, but the main part of cooking for me is entertaining and sharing fun and flavorful foods with great friends. Dinner parties, happy hours and well, most anything to do with food is where I begin to enjoy. My other side, the artsy side is a craving for art, painting and photography. Maybe this is my Gemini left side of the brain?? Since starting to write a Blog I've picked back up what hubby calls my big ass camera and started carting it around again. He’s always afraid I will ask him to carry it. I keep thinking that when I retire (?#&*!!!) that I will have time to read all the photography books in my library and become a superb photographer. Wishful thinking.

    Had never heard of, nor seen, a havalina before. Seems cute – and I’m sure appreciates your generous handouts 🙂 Love your feeding trough!

      The little ones are cute but as they get older they get a more aggressive and not quite so cute. I’ve actually seen one eat a cactus, thorns and all sticking in it’s nose.
