Enjoying My Summer Days

The Ranger really has been a blessing.  It lets me get out into the pasture and see my goats.

The wethers just crack me up.  Those boys are so funny.

None of the goats seem to sure of me sitting in the Ranger (even with the engine off).  Minnie, our herd queen was really wondering if it was safe to come close.

Finally, my milking girl, Haley decided to check it out.



When the Ranger didn’t eat her, everyone else decided it was safe!

Goat Herd in pasture

Of course, nobody was coming to love me up.  They were just crossing the bottom that was mown.  Millie might be mad at me and daring me to make her quit eating that hay.



Most of the goats just browse or fight their way across the bottom.

Then it’s up the next hill to keep eating.

At least I got to see them a bit closer.  I can’t wait until I can walk with them again!

My Garden Grows

I have to tell you, my little garden is doing well.  It’s taken some work to keep it wet enough.  Those annual, fruit-bearing plants take a lot out of the soil.  In pots, they need watered a lot.

It’s paying off though.  I’ll have fresh zucchini and tomatoes before long!

She Got What She Wanted

Well, every time I go up the road, I have to look in the neighbor’s pasture and wonder where, oh where, my bovine are.

Cows 125ew

I miss seeing Maxine and Norma Jean and George.  I wonder which ones might be them.

Cows 91ew

I’m guessing they don’t give a passing thought to me.

Hey!  That red one looks like it might be Maxine…

Cows 93ew

You see, they got what they wanted.

Bull 98ew

It will probably be late fall before they come home.
