Odds, Ends, and Leftovers

20 May

I managed to get my garden re-planted.  I didn’t have my camera up there though, so you get a picture of my garlic and potatoes in containers.

My strawberry bed in containers is also doing well.

Penelope has reached that awkward stage where she can easily put her head through the fence, but she can’t get it out.  I’m hoping that she outgrows this phase quickly.

If not…I still have my horn apparatus left over from Hera.

Maybeline is such a pretty girl.  I hope the llama shearer comes soon since our weather is starting to warm up.

I am really starting to wonder how many kids Hilda has in there.  She’s still got a month to go.

Wanda’s fur is growing back where she was naked all winter.  I’m pretty sure our warm, humid air has helped it not be dry and itchy.  She been rubbing it off with her horn every time it started to grow back, but it is finally looking good.

I’m guessing part of the problem with her fur having come off and her back injury were due to low copper.  I don’t understand that because she’d never shown a sign of the copper issues before.  Sadly, I’m afraid I am seeing the neurological symptoms of in vetro copper deficiency in her kids.  Lou is holding his own for now.  We’ll see what happens.

I’m afraid Lainey’s issues are too severe for her to continue much longer.

This just breaks my heart.  I gave those goats a ridiculous amount of copper throughout the last year, and I’m getting ready to do another round in the next week or two.
