A Winter Wonderland

24 Dec

We had fog overnight that left us looking like a winter wonderland this morning.

It was a busy day spent with family.  Happy holidays to everyone!

Falling Out of Love

5 Dec

Since the llady llamas came to the farm in October, Llenny has been stalking them.  They don’t really like him, but he hangs around them.  Well, the snow left him an unhappy llama, and he led the way back up to the barn.

They were not up there long before the snow stopped and everyone went out to pasture.

The girls seem quite content out there eating the grass beneath the snow.  Llenny…

not so much.  Look at those ears!

Poor guy.  He actually came up to the barn to hang out with the goats this afternoon while Odie and Maybeline were out in pasture.  I think he might be falling out of love with this winter weather.

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items at the top of my side bar.

Frosty Morning

26 Nov

I was up early getting ready for Christmas in the Soap Room, and I was rewarded with a beautiful sunrise.  This was the view from my front yard.

It was awfully frosty though.

It was just a few minutes before the sun was no longer behind my fence post.

I was surprised how early the goats headed out to pasture.  It was still completely covered in frost.

I had two frosty llamas.  For some reason the girls decided to stay outside.  Llenny looks like he doesn’t understand it.  Don’t worry.  If the girls really want to go inside, there’s two sections in the main barn and two more buildings they could go in.

The two girls are not happy with him (notice their ears).  I’ve heard that the girls will spit on a male if they are bred, but I have no idea if that’s true or not.  Hopefully, they are bred and we’ll have crias before cold weather gets here next fall.
