Sheep naps and me naps
Just looking at these make me yawn...in comfort that is, like a womb engulfed me. I am going to post these and then go take a 10 minute lay down, something I rarely do but have done twice in the past days, why I don't know. The sheep are very good at regula...

Prayer Flag intentions
Someone mentioned that this little clip of The Prayer tree in the wind made them feel so peaceful. I feel that too, and am enjoying having it so close to the studio. The raggedy flags are sponsored by Apifera followers who want to donate to the final Pino P...

Earnest the pig sings
Earnest the sweetest gentleman pig of Apifera is a lot like me. He loves to sing at random moments of the day.

From this will come huge things
Some animals that die leave bigger markings. They all leave some dent in the landscape, and all are to be remembered, but some leave much bigger heart prints. Stella was one of the latter. I see her grave as I drive up the road. She is buried in the lavende...

Four hours with Boone and God
I did today exactly what was needed. I went for a four hour ride up in the mountain foothills with Boone and some friends. It's a wonderful place that is maintained by the local Muleskinners and the trails are just wonderful-challenging but never overly so....

Pino and I are moving on
I will never stop dreaming. But dreams and ideas evolve and flow. I can't be afraid of not knowing what the next dream is. I have made the decision. This June 14th will be the final Pino Pie Day. I've been thinking about this for some time, and if you pay a...

When a girl gets her first haircut
The first haircut of any creature must be very strange. I can't remember mine, but if you think about it, the sensation of having your hair cut off must be frightening to a youngster. I can't remember my first haircut, but I do remember gong to the beauty p...

The Prayer Flag Tree
I've had a secret little prayer flag tree on Donkey Hill for some time, where I put raggedy flags to send prayers to people who might need them, or situations that are scary or sad for me. It has largely been anonymous, I don't usually tell the person I'm h...

Happy pug, happy tail

The matriarch of the Apifera Cats is gone
About four weeks ago, Mama Kitty appeared on the front porch-where she lives with two of her remaining sons, Little Orange and Mr. Plum. Her chin was growing in size and was red. I assumed it was an abscess or a tooth issue. I kept my eye on her for the nex...

Sweet horse sweat and maybe it's time
Boone and I did an early morning ride up in the hills. The ranges in the background were Payne's gray and it was unseasonably sticky out–for Oregon. We hope to do a three hour ride up in those hills this holiday. We rarely ride on the weekends because I lik...

Artist, writer, mother to sheep, old donekys, goats and other misfits
Introduction
I've worked as an artist and writer of illustrated books and stories. I paint donkey ears. My muse, teacher and medicine is nature.
www.katherinedunn.us

I live on Apifera Farm where art and animal merge, and my braids float. My days are captured in essence at apiferafarm.blogspot.com

My farm is also final home to the Misfits of Love - a smattering of old, neglected or needy goats, donkeys, pigs and more.
