Who Doesn’t Like Kids?

22 Apr

Bob.  That’s who.

Pepe behind Bob

He’s learned from years of experience that kids get pushy and stomp.

He’s become pro-active in teaching them to stay away from him in recent years.

I can’t blame him.

Integrated

19 Apr

I have integrated the two parts of the goat herd.

I had all my moms and a few others on the front pasture.

Annie

Hera

I had way fewer goats on the bigger back pasture.

Casey

I had to change that.

So I put them all together.

I am still worried about my moms who are run down, but I’ll try and figure out a way to get them some extra feed.

Of course, the ones I milk will be easy.  I just have to say their name near the milk room door, and they’ll come.

Haley

After moving to the bigger pasture, I’m pretty sure Harley will really need her meds tonight.

A few of the kids got pretty tired running around.

Of course, the few who got left in the barnyard weren’t too happy about it, but they did manage to sneak through the gate back onto the front pasture to eat with Aurora.

In a couple of days, everyone will have adjusted.
