Finally Time

26 Oct

I finally decided nothing was going to stop me from selling the little bucks today.  It’s way past time when I wanted to do it.  Friday evening, while the herd was out in pasture, I figured I’d start getting everyone situated.

I started by moving Joy from up north and putting her in with Tony.

I know that seems like a weird place to start with selling bucks, but I can’t let her out or she’ll be back to nursing her mom, Zinnia, who is the only goat I’m still milking.  She can stay with Tony for a little bit.

After moving Joy, I decided to let Chiffon and Venus out of the greenhouse.  They are doing much better, and they need to get out.  I feel really bad because Venus seems a bit traumatized by being sick, losing her mom, and being shut in the greenhouse.  Poor girl.  I hope being back outside will help.

Anyhow, my next step was catching Penny’s boys, Frisco and Pipsqueak and shutting them in the greenhouse.

The rest of the goats up north came out right away and started checking to see if there were any leftovers in the food pans.

Bonnie, Penny, Tink, Clover, and Snow White

Don’t believe them when they say they are starved.  They got their sweet feed before I let them out.  Besides, several went back up to their pen and ate more hay after scavenging from the pans.

It wasn’t long before the rest of the herd came back up from pasture.

Moose, Pepe, LilyAnn, and Myson

Penelope greeted Vulcan by beating on him.

Poor boy.  He was just wormed, and I have to wait for the withdrawal period to be up.  Then he’ll get sold.  (Ringo is in the same situation.  I did eventually shut them in the greenhouse to keep them away from the girls.)

Wendy as being mean to her little sister.  I threatened to throw her in with all those bucks if she wasn’t nice.  Pretty sure she didn’t care.

I caught the other four bucks and put them in with Frisco and Pipsqueak.

I tell you, I am really going to miss Pepe, but I do not need another wether.


Hopefully, his parents will give me a sweet funny girl that looks just like him next year.

    I’m sure you will miss Pepe! He’s so cute and sweet!
    That’s quite a job, getting all those characters moved around. I hope the sale went well!

    You have now had your aerobic workout for the day, maybe the weekend.

    That was quite the juggling act, Teresa. 😅
