Pasture is Growing

26 May

For a while, with all the cool weather we had, I was worried about the pasture keeping up with the goats.

Finally, it is starting to get ahead of them and grow.

They do eat a lot though.

Lady would get lost in the growth on the other side of the fence where they can’t get.

They really eat a lot, but it makes them happy and healthy.

I will probably let them out on the back half of the Back Forty soon–when they start going to pasture later in the day.  Then I won’t worry (quite so much) about coyotes.

And it will give this front pasture a rest because I’ll shut them back on it when we go on vacation.

Looking Like Summer

I love this time of year.  Everything is turning green and there’s wildlife to photograph and happy goats and llamas on pasture.

Sorry to overload with this last subject, but I’ve never seen such an agreeable snake before.

Here’s to another great weekend!

More Happy Goats on Pasture

11 May

It’s been crazy around here.  Seriously.  So I’m just sharing more of the goats right after they got to go back out on pasture.

Aurora

Astra found a way to scratch her belly.

Hilda

Cody made it out there finally!

Pretzel

Sappho’s first day in pasture wore her out.

Seriously, wore her out.

I think I’m seriously in need of summer break because I have way too much to do.
