Foiled Again!

I looked at my fence and found where I though Ruff was getting out and rejoining his mom.  I did a little work, and it seemed to have fixed the problem.

Later in the day I came out to find him out with his mom again.  This time it was pretty obvious how he got out.

Yes, Sugar looking at me through the huge hole is the culpret.  I don’t know how any of the kids are staying where I put them with that huge hole.

Hazel is Killing Me

Hilda and Hazel are Helen’s girls that I weaned and put with Millie and my new moms.  Well, Hazel is killing me.

They are supposed to be on the same side of the fence.  Don’t give me that sweet innocent look, Hazel.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve chased that little girl up and down the fence line through thistles and nettles, tripping on the tall grass as she’s frantically yelling and trying to figure out how to get back in while the sun is setting and thunder and lightning are approaching.  And sometimes, just sometimes when it’s the middle of a nice afternoon, I ignore her being out and when I come back, she’s looking all sweet and innocent on the right side of the fence.

Sharing with Alphabe-Thursday where the letter this week is H.  H is for Hazel (and Hilda).

Old Fence

I can’t believe how busy things are.  I’m working like crazy to get the garage construction started, tending my garden and goats, and getting ready for the pumpkin patch for this fall.  On top of that, I just called called to go to a class for my off-farm job, so I’ll be gone next week.

I’m rushing to get everything done before I go, but we’ll see where that leaves me with blog posts.

Sharing with Good Fences.
