Eviction Notice

3 Apr

I think I’m going to have to give Blaze and Gidget eviction notices to get them out of the yard.  I opened the gate and suggested they go out to pasture.  Blaze just looked at me and took a long drink of the water that doesn’t have geese playing in it.



Then she ambled back to the back yard where Gidget was finishing the last of the corn they had, each in their own food pan with nobody to push them out.  Together, they wander around to eat in the yard and garden.  Later, they’ll go to sleep in their part of the greenhouse without anyone else trying to take their spot.  Wonder why they like where they’re at.

Their kids are really getting big and doing well.  André is just too cute with his fuzzy wattles!  Gidget is doing a good job of raising him.



Of course, she has her maa as a good role model.  Amazingly, Blaze is raising both of her kids.  This will be the first time she’s ever been able to raise more than one baby.

Her udder is such a mess that she just can’t feed her kids.  See her kids (on top) nursing a teat and there’s also an extra teat on each side.  Because they are uneven and different sizes, it just doesn’t work.  Gidget has four teats (on the bottom), but they are all even and doesn’t seem to be a problem.  André  nurses all four!

I’m really not sure how to get them out of my yard, but they all seem happy and healthy.  Guess I’ll worry about it when it’s time to plant the garden.

I do hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  The items for this coming week are in the top of my sidebar.

Today I’m sharing with Mosaic Monday, Scavenger Hunt Sunday (all photographer’s choice), I Heart Macro, and Macro Monday 2.

    Andre is cute with her wattles and I laughed about the eviction notice for Blaze and Gidget.

      I was thrilled to see he inherited his daddy’s wattles! Those two are quite content being pampered in the yard.

    Great pictures! But I’m sitting here trying to remember why Blaze and Gidget are being the “yard ladies”!! Will you please remind me so I don’t have to look back through all those entries to find out? Thanks!

      Convenience and space while kidding.

    If you had food for them, would they not follow you out of the yard? Works for most animals.

      I could move them, but they are just so happy where they are!

    Your babies have minds of their own! They make me laugh (but of course it’s not my garden that won’t get planted)….they’re all cute, but that little white one , Andre I think, is such a total charmer!

      I have a little time before I have to kick them out. I can’t blame them for enjoying the extra pampering.

    I love Blaze’s toothy smile for your camera.

      That was chomping on a big mouth full of last year’s weeds from the garden. LOL At least they are good for clearing that stuff.

    Each kid is so precious… your love and devotion to your furry family is felt by all of us around the world. How blessed they are to have you as their caretaker.
