Gaining Weight

10 Jan

I think the ulcer medication has really helped Aurora.  She’s eating well, and I think she’s actually gaining weight.  It’s hard to tell when I see her everyday.  I did finally feel her back, and I think she feels better.


I did kick a couple of the goats out of the garage.  Vinnie joined Sam to get bred for June babies.


Lily was a pain.  The moment I put her in the garage, she decided she had to tip the food tubs over to find that one best morsel that was obviously on the bottom of the tub.  Lots of wasted  hay with that method of eating, so she got kicked out with our warmer weather.

Aurora (Aurora doesn’t like the camera flash.  Can you tell?) and Lily

She whined when I put her out, so I felt guilty and let her back in the garage.  Later, she acted like she really wanted out, so I put her back outside.  She seemed okay with that, but now she’s spending all of her time fighting with Victoria through the fence.  Seriously, Lily.  What a pain!

I did leave Vixen in the garage with Aurora because Vixen is also old and not very far up the food chain.  She’s also a much daintier eater.


I think these two will get along; although, Vixen is acting like she wants more goat company.  Sigh.  I just can’t make everyone happy.

They might be in here together most of the winter.  We’ll see how much weight I can get on Aurora.

    My dad when he was disgusted with something he said, “well, goat butt!” So I had to smile at Vixen’s picture. And as a result of the tail count pictures my hubby walked by the other day and asked if that was the goat butt blog. Do enjoy your posts about all the animals.
