More Moving Goats

26 Jun

I keep telling you that goat herding is really nothing but moving goats from one place to another.

I moved more goats around.  I wanted to get Vinnie and LilyAnn out of the buildings by themselves and in a larger space.

I’m also not about to play hide-and-goat seek with the littlest kids on the farm, so they had to go up north.

I’m sure Ringo will like getting to play with other kids.  Although, can you see LilyAnn giving me the stink eye?  I trimmed her hooves, and it was a bit melodramatic.  Seriously…

Anyhow, it was already crowded up there, and I was feeding hay and lots of sweet feed, but the March babies were not getting much to eat, so I kicked them out.

I was not happy that Mary was trying to let Bubbles and Tootles nurse. She doesn’t have anything.  That’s why I could let these kids out.

Their moms are completely dried up.  I know they are dried up because I am not milking my girls that I’ve milked for the last seven years.

I did leave Astra and Ava’s kids up there because they would just start nursing their moms again.

Angela, Moira, and Squanto

I also kicked out Cookie and Zinnia.  Their kids are a little older; hopefully, they won’t get lost in the pasture.

I am also doing a horrible job of making little miss Joy into a sweet girl.  She says she’s way too sassy to be tamed.

We’ll see.  I’m not giving up yet.

      I need to still keep working them out of the north paddock, but it will probably be selling kids and giving the moms a couple more weeks.
