Doing Chores

30 Dec

I have to say I enjoy doing chores when I’m on vacation way more than the hurry-and-feed-them-before-dark routine it has been for the last month.  I get to take my time and enjoy everyone’s company.  You’ll never really get pictures of chores because it really takes every hand I have to feed and not get trampled, but I can enjoy it when I take my time.

Some goats are still impatient about waiting for me to get their dinner to them.

Others have decided I need “helper” goats.  Moose is there everyday to go in the barn with me.

Cinderella joins him sometimes, and they are my bale testers.  They are very good at their job!

The goats enjoy getting fed earlier and having more time before dark to eat their fill.

Someone else waits patiently too.

I am still amazed it’s working to feed the goats with MJ down here too.  He’s so gentle.

It’s kind of neat to see all the different species getting along.

We’re all going to miss chores being done earlier when I go back to work next week, but we’ll enjoy it while we can!
