It’s widely assumed that bookworms tend to be stay-at-home types, who like nothing more than curling up on the sofa and losing themselves in a good story. Not so for Reader Beastie! Since moving to Canada earlier in the year, he’s really flung himself into the life of a ranch hand… although as you can see from the photo above, he’s yet to find a proper pair of cowboy boots in his size!
However, there are other ways for a Beastie to get about…
…And it looks like he’s waaaaay better at horseriding than I ever was, too!
We’ve just caught him on his way out to the community pasture, where he’ll be checking up on the livestock. This huge stretch of land (around 6000 acres) is owned by the Saskatchewan government and is leased by a group of local farmers every summer. It’s a great opportunity for the cattle to stretch their legs and raise their calves in the great outdoors! Everything seems to be in order here, anyway…
…And it’s also fun to catch up with all the gossip at the water cooler.
You never know who else you might meet out here… Hey there, baby hawks!
Reader Beastie decided not to hang around until mum came back, though. He figured it was probably safer to take a break a little further down the road, where his buddy the cowdog could keep sketch…
…While he took a weight off in the sagebrush…
…And enjoyed the view!
All in a day’s work for this intrepid little monster… at this rate, he’ll be able to write his own book!
Thanks to Nicole for sending me pictures from Reader Beastie’s latest adventure. I love to see what the Beasties get up to once they leave Beastie Towers, so keep those photos coming!
Have a great weekend, everybody!

Your Beasties really knows how to enjoy themselves 😊
Of course! 😀 I think that’s why they’re always smiling 😀

I love that you can keep track of what your little Beasties are up to. Is it easier to say goodbye, knowing that they stay in touch?
It really is! And it makes me happy to see other people getting the same kick out of hanging out with them that I do! 😀
Love it 🙂
What a corageous little beasty 🙂 And he looks quite healthy, maybe he is now reading books related to farming and enjoying them…
Thank you! The Beasties must be almost as well-travelled as you are by now 😀
I reckon so!
What a corageous little beasty… Maybe he is currently reading something on farming techniques… he looks so healthy 😉
Hahaha! I like it! And with so much fresh air about, I’m not surprised Reader Beastie looks healthy… I always feel better after some time in the countryside too 😀 (PS I’m going to try to do your interview today or tomorrow! It’s been a bit of a mad week… But I haven’t forgotten!)
You’re a sweetheart, thank you and for doing your lovely beasties…
Awww, you’re making me blush now! 😄
