Getting Along

24 Jan

It’s been a long time, but I’ve decided I need to get out of my own little world and join up with some blog linkups again.  I miss seeing other people around the world.  Today, I’m joining Tom the Backroads Traveller for the Weekend Roundup.  This week’s items are: Starts with D, dark and a favorite.

Some of the critters are getting along with each other and the winter weather better than others.  The ones in the Love Shack are actually getting along with each other.  I still worry about my old girls in there, but so far they are hanging in there.  Harley has really become one of my favorites.  She’s such a character.

Athena, Cinnamon’s only daughter (a doe), was reallly being picked on in the greenhouse, so I let her out. I did manage to check her udder, and I think she’s bred.  I guess if she isn’t I don’t really care.

Luckily, she settled right back into the main herd with no problems.

The one who was doing most of the picking on her is Caroline.  Brat.  She might look sweet, but she’s got a naughty side to her.  Here’s she’s enjoying the sunshine instead of staying in the dark greenhouse (ironic, huh, but we had to take the windows out since they were collapsing).

I am worried about Penny and Litha and Flower, but they are hanging in for now.  I’m not sure how they’ll do if we keep having these crazy temperature swings.

Blaze is really starting to look close to having her oopsie babies, so I’m planning on moving her into the garage this weekend.  I think Mary will be a couple of weeks after her, but I’ll keep checking them closely.

Hilda and Xerxes are happy with each other, but I don’t know what I was thinking putting those two chickens together.

Xerxes and Hilda (don’t lick Hilda! You’ll get your tongue stuck!)

Every time I go in there, they look like I’m going to kill them.  They run away.

Xerxes is not quite so bad when he’s with Fionn, who is as calm and sweet as a buck can be.

The geese act like it’s a perfect spring day.  I swear they have rubber feet.

They do like the hay I put out there for them though.  You’d think the ganders would quit being so nasty when I do nice things for them.

But no.  They still nip at me.  Jerks.

Edit: I tried visiting other blogs, but blogger eats my comments and they disappear.  Sorry.  Guess I won’t get back into linking up again.

    Teresa. It’s nice to hear about your animal family again. I’m glad, they all seem to be doing well. As I watched them stream past I wondered how the fared, some all day long, with their bare feet standing in he cold snow.

      They have a nice big barn to go in and get out of the elements.
