Some of the Critters

16 Feb

The animals are much better at not whining about the weather than me.

Maybeline

Of course, they just order room service and hang out in the barn all day.

Myson

I was afraid Nugget was going to lose half his comb and half his wattles, and it looks like the wattles have already fallen off, but the comb is looking a little better now.  Although, I still think he’s going to lose quite a bit of the points.

Nugget and ladies

The peacocks are working hard to grow their tails out.

Everyone else is just hanging around or butting heads.

Cookie

You know, because they aren’t the ones doing chores.

They just get to stand there and munch away.

Hera

15 Feb

Since I put the two little bucks in with Tony, that means I let Hera out of the Love Shack too.

It took her a little bit to find her maa, Gidget.  Hera seems to be as tall (or taller than) her maa now.

She also had to get reacquainted with the rest of the herd.

I hope she doesn’t go back to being a wild thing.

I also hope she’s going to have Anubis babies in June.

Breakfast!

14 Feb

Breakfast is a very important meal, and I want to make sure Tony has plenty to eat all day long, so I check his food in the morning.  It looks like he helped himself to the second pad of alfalfa hay.  That’s fine.  He can eat all he wants!

Of course, my two little boys do not seem to think it’s fair that I put that rich alfalfa on top of the shelves.

Anubis and Pluto

They also think it’s not fair that they can see the bale and they cannot reach the bale.

What’s Pluto watching? His more resourceful brother going after the alfalfa.

Silly buck.

“What? You were starving me!”

I also had to wire Tony’s pan for llama feed to the panel so Anubis didn’t knock it down.

Anubis really thinks that isn’t fair.

It’s tough being a companion goat to a recovering llama.
