Disorganized Chaos

16 May

I was taking a few pictures the other evening when the goats noticed I was in the barnyard.  That means they came on the run to get fed.

I usually don’t show you what chores are like because it’s a bit chaotic.

They swarm around me and the food pans.

Reva, Maggie, and Astra

They push each other.

Clover and Gidget

There’s lots of spilling.

They step in the pans and dump them.  Way too much spilling.

Antigone

I occasionally have goats trying to get to the food pan quicker by going between my legs (thankfully no picture of that).

Stormy

It’s absolute chaos.

There might be some swearing (especially when the fighting, swarming, and pushing gets kids stuck in the midst of it).

Squanto and Trooper

Although, they are doing a good job of getting in there to eat, or staying out of the way.

Hilda and a whole lot of kids

Siblings eat together. It’s safer that way.

Casey and Cookie

Mothers and daughters sometimes eat together.

Annie and Caroline

Sometimes they are the ones fighting.

Victoria and Vinnie

Occasionally, someone left with a bit of corn in their fur for some backsnacking later.

Maggie

It all works out eventually.

    You have me laughing again. Backspacing really got me going. I could imagine it so clearly. Thanks!

      Backsnacking is a term that originated with Herron Hill Dairy. It fits perfectly.
