The Neglected Ones

20 Jun

It’s true.  This time of year, if a goat didn’t just have kids or aren’t about to have kids, then they are being neglected.

Onyx and Victoria (I decided a while ago that Onyx didn’t settle, but don’t think I mentioned it.)

Most of my time is spent with the moms and tracking kids and cleaning butts and all that fun stuff.  Everyone else is pretty much feeding themselves on the Back Forty and being self-sufficient.

Casey

Of course, my old girls are still getting their meds.

Haley

I do count all the older kids.

Shellie

I make sure everyone makes it safely up from pasture and aren’t over-heating.

Aurora (they are supposed to be sheared before I go on vacation.)

They are getting plenty of fresh water, and I made sure to put a new salt/mineral block over there for them.

Maybeline getting a drink

Okay.  They really are not neglected.

Pretzel

They just think they are.

    They’re probably pretty happy with all that nice green stuff to feed on. They do look good. I’m impressed with that very shiny coat Onyx has. She looks really beautiful.

      She is a sleek beauty.
