The Cold

30 Jan

We are back to some really cold weather.

I was trying to increase the grain the goats get to help them stay warm.  It doesn’t help that the feed store was out of corn and goat feed again when I stopped on my way home Friday. Luckily,  my nephew hooked me up with enough to get through the weekend.

I also have to have the corn to keep putting weight on Victoria.  She actually doesn’t look bad now.  Of course, she comes in and gets a heaping quart of corn and then about the same amount of llama feed every day.  She prefers the llama feed to the sweet feed.


I’m looking at the hay in the barn and trying to see how long the stack in the bottom will last.  I’d love to not have to take any out of the loft, but I’m not sure that’s going to happen.  At least I’m confident I have plenty to get through the winter.

Thankfully, the cattle tank is working well.  (please keep working)


I have been giving the birds some hay for bedding also.  They can snuggle into eat and eat it both.

These weird girls don’t go up to roost.

Mr. Peacock is hanging in there.  I know he’s still going up to roost despite the foot injury.  I do hope he doesn’t lose too much of his toes and he’s able to get around.

With the crazy cold and the freezing injuries I’ve had to birds in the last few years, I’m thinking I might just have to give up having birds.
