Some SOOC Scenes from the Day

10 Nov

Not a whole lot to share today.  Well, Osmo moved to a new farm where he hopefully will behave himself.  Other than that, it was just hanging out.  Flower and Bud were hanging out together at the salt/mineral block.

Even the bovine and llama were hanging out up by the barnyard.

MJ and Maxine with Djali looking cranky

My nephew and mom came out and were just hanging out.  Not really.  Brandon wanted to start some mead, so they were putting a lot of honey into the pan.  I’ve been entrusted with its care until next weekend when it will go into a carboy.


Joe and Pam were hanging out at the water bucket.  I thought it was interesting to see them together.  Joe was the blood donor when Pam had to have a blood transfusion.  Obviously, there were no hard feelings and Pam recovered.

Mary was just hanging out eating some hay.


Cutie just hanging out enjoying the sun.  She always gives me this glamour girl look. 🙂

Cutie Pie

The mallow is still going strong!  We’ll see how it’s doing after we get down to 21*F on Monday.

Finally, the sun is setting way too early for my happiness.  At least there’s a silver lining to the cloud.

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  Don’t forget to click on the Mosaic in my sidebar to enter the giveaway for a 2013 Eden Hills Calendar, or you can click HERE.

    Looks like a lovely day of hanging out. I agree with Theresa- Mary gets cutest photo.

    • Teresa November 10, 2012 at 5:47 pm #

      It was a nice day. Don’t know how many more of them we’ll have.

    Said it before, your animals are all so happy and content. If I was a goat I would pay you rent to live at Eden Hills. 😉 xo

    • Teresa November 10, 2012 at 5:48 pm #

      I might have to start thinking about charging them! 🙂

    Mary is the cutest but Cutie Pie has Goattitude! 😀

    Mead? Yum! So very, very Sisterhood! 😉

    • Teresa November 10, 2012 at 6:07 pm #

      Blackberry mead! We have a five-gallon batch started. 🙂 Cutie was the herd queen for quite some time, and she ruled by force. Lots of attitude!

  5. Tayet November 10, 2012 at 6:25 pm #

    Mary is so cute! Cutie is looking good.

    • Teresa November 10, 2012 at 7:23 pm #

      Poor Cutie has arthritis, so she’s not going to like the change coming in our weather. Mary is a sweetie!

  6. dimple November 10, 2012 at 6:44 pm #

    I agree that Mary is the cutest in this bunch.
    Lovely sunset, too!

    • Teresa November 10, 2012 at 7:24 pm #

      Mary is adorable! She’s awfully sweet too.

  7. Alica November 10, 2012 at 6:47 pm #

    I’ll add my two cents, and agree that Mary wins for me today too!

    • Teresa November 10, 2012 at 7:24 pm #

      Is it any wonder that she stole my heart and gets to stay?

    Osmo only jumped the fence once or twice that little turd. He didn’t challenge the buck or the girls. They challenged him. They didn’t fight at all! He strut around, and the boys just loved him!

    • Teresa November 10, 2012 at 8:39 pm #

      Hope he quits jumping. 🙂 I did warn you though. 🙂

  9. Stewart M November 10, 2012 at 10:34 pm #

    Hi there – your animals do look to have a bit of character! Hope the mead works well.

    Thanks for the comment on my blog – I’ve been in Oman for a week hence slow reply!

    Cheers – Stewart M – Australia

      I’m sure the mead will turn out well. It about kills the boys to wait two years before they get to sample it.

    My best friends are interested in buying some goats to raise both to sell and for meat. They know nothing at all about the raising or care and really need some advice on the best breed for a beginner. Since you have experience in raising goats, I was wondering if you would have any recommendations. I’ve researched online, but there is so much info out there, it was way too overwhelming. We live in Arkansas…… and humid. They’ve raised other animals and are very good with them. Any information would be appreciated. I enjoy your blog very much.

    • Teresa November 11, 2012 at 7:35 am #

      The breed depends entirely what they want them for. Meat goats, I’d recommend Boer. If they want milk Nubians give the richest milk. Saanens don’t have the richness, but they are considered the Holsteins of the goat world, and they have a great temperament. If they only want a bit of milk, a lot of people like the smaller goats, Nigerian Dwarfs. Then there are fiber goats~angora if they want the fiber to spin into yarn. Of course, most goats are sweet and fun!

    Lovely sunset, you caught it perfect. Yah, Mary get the cute prize from me too.

    You’re going great guns girl! I’m leaving my “fancifying” for the editing.

    • Teresa November 11, 2012 at 7:36 am #

      Mary really does win the cute award every day. She is just adorable!

  12. Pat November 11, 2012 at 7:59 am #

    Lovely scenes of the day! Cutie is enjoying the sun.

    • Teresa November 11, 2012 at 8:26 am #

      Other than blowing your hat off, it was a gorgeous day! Cutie is certainly feeling the stiffness and arthritis of her age, so she really does enjoy a nice sunny day.

  13. Misty Dawn November 11, 2012 at 9:50 am #

    Mary made me smile, and that Mallow photo is gorgeous!

    • Teresa November 11, 2012 at 11:02 am #

      Thanks. Mary seems to be inspiring lots of smiles!

  14. Nancy November 11, 2012 at 2:02 pm #

    Everyone looks very peaceful and content — and our mallow was hanging in there until last night. Its only 29 F right now at 2 pm!

    • Teresa November 11, 2012 at 2:43 pm #

      Pretty sure mine is done now. We’re right at freezing with rain and sleet.

  15. Marie-AZ November 12, 2012 at 7:01 am #

    Mary eating hay is my FAVORITE picture! So adorable! Love the mallow too.

    • Teresa November 12, 2012 at 7:50 am #

      Mary is just too cute! That could be why I fell in love and can’t get rid of her. 🙂

  16. Candy C. November 12, 2012 at 7:25 am #

    I always enjoy seeing the beautiful mallow! Looks like everyone had a good day “hanging out.” Yep, Mary sure is a sweetie pie. Uh, TWO YEARS?!? That would be killing me! 🙂

    • Teresa November 12, 2012 at 7:51 am #

      I consider it a lesson in patience. That’s something all young men need to learn. 🙂

  17. Gattina November 13, 2012 at 3:41 pm #

    There is nothing to do ! Your goats are far better models then Kate Moss or Naomi Cambell !

    • Teresa November 13, 2012 at 5:36 pm #

      They do model. Cutie always gives me her glamour girl look! 🙂

  18. Lindy Lee November 15, 2012 at 6:27 am #

    Thank you for this post. Yes, “nice matters”– have to be persistent, sometimes, but nice does surely matter…

    • Teresa November 15, 2012 at 6:44 am #

      Thanks. I used to have that sign hanging in my classroom. 🙂
