Some SOOC Scenes from the Day

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.

    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

      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!

    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!

    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!

    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.

      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!

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

      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.

    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!

    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! :)

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

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