These Is Good

B- Hey Ranger, we're going to try some new food tonight.

R- New food is dangerous Beel.  It can give you a belly ache.

B- LOTS of horses eat this food, Ranger.  We call it "oats" and horses have eaten it for many, many years.

R- Lots of horses eat worm-paste too. And it is very bad.

B- Try some, buddy.  You'll love it.

R- No.

B- Ranger, TREAT!

R- You have a treat?  I will eat a treat.

B- There you go, Ranger.  I know you will only eat a little the first time, so that's all I brought.

R-  It is a good treat Beel.  I will have some more now.

B-  Sorry, buddy.  Only a cup full of oats.  The rest is for the other two horses.

R- I will eat their oats.  Oats is a good treat.

B-  Now, you leave their bowls alone.  You NEVER eat this much of a new food! We will give you more oats tomorrow.

R-  The cold white is starting to fall from the sky Beel.  I will starve and freeze if I do not get more oats treat.

B-  Tomorrow, my friend.  Fill up on hay tonight.

R-  Okay Beel.  You will know where to find my bony and frozen body when the sun comes home tomorrow.

B-  If you're still alive in the morning, I'll get you some more oats.  We'll make a plow horse out of you yet.

R-  If plow horses eat oats treats I will learn.


  1. Hahahahahaha. I love your conversations with Ranger. They crack me up

  2. LOL! I love it! You need to write a book on Ranger stories with you illustrations!

  3. Very witty conversation, but surely not a plow horse.

  4. I love Ranger stories, write a kid book with them, this one would teach kids to try new foods, sometimes they are so good you want more and new foods make you grow into maybe not a plow horse but a foot ball player.

  5. perfect way to start my day!

  6. Yummmm, Oats and Black Oil Sunflower Seeds. Try those Ranger.

  7. I can't believe he went for MAY have created a monster. Thanks for the laugh!

  8. Dang it. You need to get with Jay and get a book made. Your illustrations are too perfect. I mean, you already have your own product line started courtesy of GunDiva and her mad towel skills :)

    Glad Ranger figured out that oats were not bad. YUMMO!


I had to turn verification back on. Ten "spams" an hour is making me crazy...
