Back With the Herd

3 May

Since I had to put everyone on the front pasture until I got the fence repaired, I decided it would be the perfect time to move Aphrodite, Venus and Haley back in with the rest of the herd.

The herd coming to see what was going on while I was trying to get the girls to join them.

It was a pretty smooth transition.


Well, except for Pluto being a pain trying to fight with Aphrodite.

The kids are big enough to keep up with the herd on the small pasture.

Venus and Cody

I did look, and last year it was late in May before I turned them out onto the back half.  That looks like the safest bet again.

I also decided I’d just let everyone stay on the front pasture for a week to give the front half of the back forty time to grow since they will be stuck on if for a while yet.

Lots more stuff to eat on the little pasture; but the warmer weather and rain should really make the grass grow.

And they better be safe on the smaller pasture with three llamas.

I will say, some bucks don’t look too happy with their smaller accommodations.

Benji and Frodo want out on the pasture too.

They will survive though.
