Closing the Gates

28 Oct

I decided last weekend it was time to close the gates to the back half of the Back Forty.  I noticed the llamas up in the barnyard getting a drink, so I decided it was a good time.  Of course, by the time I got out there, they were headed back out to pasture.

I also saw the goats were on the back part of the pasture, but it looked like they were coming back up.

I went out and greeted them by the gate.

When they went through, I was waiting to close them.

I did have to wait for Antigone; she was well behind everyone else.


The goats continued on towards the barnyard.

After fastening the gates, I turned around to see Aurora right there.  I had gotten it in the neck of time!


All three of the girls were none too happy that they couldn’t get through.

Although Odie was content to just keep eating on this side of the fence.

I feel a lot better with everyone shut away from the coyote woods with the days getting shorter.

    I’m sorry you have to worry about coyotes! Of course they have to eat too, but NOT goats or llamas!!! I’m glad you got that all taken care of!

      The llamas are not at risk; the llamas are there to protect the goats from coyotes. I just don’t have a way of letting the llamas on the back part without the goats going out too.
