To Pasture For Real

7 Mar

With the warm weather last week, the goats have gone back out to pasture for real.  Sunday morning, despite the cold and wind, I decided to go out there and see them.

Of course, they came as soon as they noticed me.

It didn’t slow down their eating much though.

The llamas are out there too.

I am really glad to see them out here because it means I have fewer bales of hay to give them in the evening.

Munching away

Because they are also drinking out of the ditch, it means fewer buckets of water to carry.  I am really happy about that.

But it’s back to snowy winter, so I’m back to full rations of hay again and carrying lots of water.

    Ugghh hope that cold clears out quickly. They look so happy and healthy. You take such good care of your animal tribe.

      I try. This winter has been really rough on the old ones.

    It’s so nice to see them out in the pasture. It must be frustrating when the weather turns colder so suddenly. I hope it’ll settle down soon. I hate to think of you carrying water in buckets for them.

      It’s March in Iowa, so we tend to still have cold and snow (just not usually tornadoes). I’ll live carrying water. I am grateful that I do have water where it’s easy to access it for them.
