Weekly Photo Challenge: Monochromatic.

The best barn cats are monochromatic; they blend in. Unobtrusive lurkers, they’re the color of dirt, hay, and shadow. A bright colored calico is an easy target for a hawk, but a tabby…well, rodents beware.

This pair are siblings; it’s hard to tell where one stops and the other starts. Hank stalks coyotes, intimidates dogs for sport, and is very outspoken, while Squirrel prefers killing moths, napping in boxes, and proofreading. Not so monochromatic after all.

(WordPress Photo Challenge is a weekly prompt to share a photo- I enjoy twisting these macro prompts to share our micro life here on the Colorado prairie. My photos are taken with my phone, on my farm. No psych, definitely not high tech.)


This blog is free, and it always will be. Free to read, but also free of ads because I turn away sponsorships and pay to keep ads off my site. I like to read a clean page and think you do too. If you appreciate the work I do, or if your horse does, consider making a donation.

  1. The cat that lives with me (technically my son’s cat) assists in EVERYTHING! She keeps the dog in line – vigorously. Also is extremely helpful with email & reading! Not a barn cat, obviously. Cannot imagine a life without cats & dogs. Of course a few years ago I couldn’t imagine a life without my horse, but all of their lives are shorter than ours – and things change – and we have to adapt.
