To the Sale Barn

19 May

After I turned the llamas out, I managed to sneak up and catch Vinnie’s girls and shut them in the buck pen and its small outdoor paddock.  Then I hauled Harley’s girls over too.

Vanna and Viera

I tell you, these four girls are just the most wild things you’ve ever seen.  This morning, I managed to bribe them into the buck room with some sweet feed. Then I went out and around the building and shut the door from the outside.  They were trapped!

Then my nephew came and helped me load them onto his truck, so I could take them to the sale barn.  They were literally bouncing off the walls and trying to jump out the window when we went to catch them.  Really wild things!   I must say, it was the second longest line I’ve ever seen for unloading once I got to the sale barn.  I’m glad it wasn’t August hot since we had to wait so long.

It literally took me an hour from getting in line to unloading the girls.  Finally, I left them safely at the sale barn.

Now the only thing I have left to figure out with the whole copper deficiency is how to get the goats their minerals in a way they won’t just dump them on the ground (I’m talking to you Fionn and Xerxes) and encouraging the March/April babies to eat those minerals.

      They have all had it. These four were always going to be sold. It just impacted the timing.

    That was quite a process! You must have been exhausted when it was over!
