Out to Pasture

15 Jan

The goats have been doing a whole lot of standing around and doing nothing.  This weekend, we are once again well above our historic average temperatures.  So this morning when I saw them staring, I knew what was up.

Staring at the barn door while everyone gathers

They soon headed out to pasture. It was an energetic group–young, old, and in between were all ready to get out of the barnyard.

The llamas have been going out to pasture most days because it’s easier to hike through snow than share hay with goats.

Maybeline and Odie head off on their own

But look who else decided to join the herd.

Ms. Goose (she didn’t go far, but she did get out there a little ways)

Once they made it out of the barnyard and everyone was gathered together again, they headed down the hill.

They headed back up the hill when they saw me, but they went back out when I came in the house.

Hopefully, they wear off some of that energy that they’ve been using to fight and be naughty.
