The Bucks Got Moved

5 Jul

Last week when we had five raindrops I noticed that Sam and Xerxes had gone into the building.  I snuck around and shut the door!  Yea!  I had them caught.  Then my dear nephew came out (because they had actual rain on the north side of town and he couldn’t make hay) and helped me move them in with the big boys.  I think they are thrilled with all the extra pasture space.

Luckily my big goofy boys are super sweet.  They could not care less about the little ones being in there with them.

They all went in the buck shelter when we had our real half inch of rain last week.

It’s a relief to have them moved where there’s plenty of food and good shelter.  Can you see all four boys in the picture below?

I shouldn’t have to move any of the boys again until we’re ready to put them with the girls for our 2017 babies.

I hope you’ll come back and join me for Friday’s Hunt.  The items for this week are at the top of my side bar.
