One Thing I Didn’t Miss

1 May

I had the herd divided in half for about a month.  I really prefer to have everyone together so it’s easier to see everyone and check on them and just hang out with them.

Pluto (I can’t believe how round he looks)

There is, however, one thing I did not miss while some of them were shut on the back side of the barnyard–Moose being away from my bird pen.

Moose in front of the chicken pen–the gate he constantly opens is chained.

It took all of about ten minutes before he was over there trying to open the door.  It’s not a big deal if the chickens get out.  I can always get them back in.

Don’t know what kind she is

It is partly because he let one of the peacocks out and it got killed.  I’m still mad at that.

The one remaining peacock

It isn’t even that he let Hilda in and I had to wrangle her out so she didn’t overeat when my knee was still sore.  And Hilda is not what you would call a cooperative goat.

The biggest issue is that he is going to kill himself and Myson.

Myson

Those fat wethers will get bladder stones eating chicken feed.

Moose

I cannot convince him to quit.  At least it was nice not worrying about it for a month.
