Hazel is Killing Me

8 Jul

Hilda and Hazel are Helen’s girls that I weaned and put with Millie and my new moms.  Well, Hazel is killing me.

They are supposed to be on the same side of the fence.  Don’t give me that sweet innocent look, Hazel.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve chased that little girl up and down the fence line through thistles and nettles, tripping on the tall grass as she’s frantically yelling and trying to figure out how to get back in while the sun is setting and thunder and lightning are approaching.  And sometimes, just sometimes when it’s the middle of a nice afternoon, I ignore her being out and when I come back, she’s looking all sweet and innocent on the right side of the fence.

You’re killing me Hazel.

Sharing with Alphabe-Thursday where the letter this week is H.  H is for Hazel (and Hilda).

      There might be a little swearing too, but Hazel isn’t telling.

    She better behave when you are not there next week

    • Teresa July 8, 2015 at 5:23 pm #

      She has been getting better, but they are also checking to make sure she’s back in before dark.

    We had the same problem with a sow and six piglets we fostered for a couple of weeks. Half piglets would get out and mum and other piglets would scream until we put them back in- only to go through it all again an hour later!

      They do know how to drive a person crazy!

      Thanks. It certainly does depend on the day which one is keeping me on my toes. Hope you have a great weekend too.

      Thanks. They kids love playing on that tree. It went down in a storm the year Millie was a kid.

    I like the shot of the two goats on the fallen tree.

    • Teresa July 8, 2015 at 7:31 pm #

      Thanks. They have a lot of fun climbing on that tree.

    Tonight we spent in the mud trying to catch our new timid buck to trim his hooves and worm him. Only took about an hour. 🙂

    • Teresa July 8, 2015 at 9:05 pm #

      Just an hour? That’s not too bad. 😉

    Hazel just likes a little adventure!

    • Teresa July 8, 2015 at 9:10 pm #

      She likes the rich alfalfa.

    Hazel is a little rascal isn’t she! She and her twin are both beautiful! I hope your goat caretakers have better luck as the week goes on, at keeping her in!

    I hope your week is going well!

    • Teresa July 9, 2015 at 7:52 am #

      She’s been out the last two days. They also get to gang up on her, so I hope it’s been easier for them to catch her.

    What a naughty (but so cute) girl !

    • Teresa July 9, 2015 at 7:53 am #

      She’s lucky she’s cute. That will only last for so long.

    I suspect that keeping goats may be good preparation for looking after teenagers!!

    Little stinker!

    • Teresa July 9, 2015 at 6:05 pm #

      She is a brat! Even worse than her maa.

    Ouch, in my mind I can see your frantic scramble along the fence -to fetch Miss Drama Queen:)

    • Teresa July 9, 2015 at 6:05 pm #

      I hope you’re laughing, because I’m sure it is comical.

    What a character!

    • Teresa July 9, 2015 at 6:06 pm #

      She is the evil character!

    Hazel is strong willed! Naughty Naughty Naughty!

  16. Sherry July 9, 2015 at 10:29 pm #

    They make you smile. I am sure. Thanks for sharing.

    • Teresa July 10, 2015 at 2:36 pm #

      They do, other than when I’m chasing and yelling at Hazel.

  17. Sarah July 9, 2015 at 10:33 pm #

    Hazel, Hilda, Helen ~ too cute. Thanks for sharing your girls.

    • Teresa July 10, 2015 at 2:36 pm #

    • Teresa July 10, 2015 at 2:38 pm #

      It will be solved quite soon; I’m going to take her to the sale barn.

    Honestly! What a fun little post! Hazel sounds quite ornery. And really, really smart!

    Thanks for the smile and for linking to the letter H.

      They are both smart girls; Hazel might be a bit too smart.
