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.

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.

In the Garage

11 Feb

With the goats getting moved out of the garage, that means Tony didn’t have any company.  You’ll notice the hay on his face. That’s a good sign that he was eating!

Tony

Welll, I did move the hen back into the garage because her leg was getting wonky again.  I think it’s arthritis because she seems to improve almost as soon as she gets in the garage where it’s warmer.

Mama Phoenix

She seems happy with the arrangement.

Anyhow, llamas are herd animals, and they do not tolerate being alone very well.  I want to keep Tony as unstressd as possible. That means I brought over some company.

Anubis

Anubis wasn’t too sure about being in there by himself.  By the time I had carried Pluto over, he was yelling for his company.

Pluto and Anubis

They both thought they should get to go back to the Love Shack, but I think they should stay with Tony.  I was kind of impressed they could both get their heads through one hole.

If nothing else, they will provide him with entertainment to watch.

That is if Anubis doesn’t get too rowdy.

Although Pluto was more interested in eating than playing.

Hopefully, they’ll settle in and be good company.  I also was hoping for the benefit of giving Tony dinner companions.

Tony

That seems to be working!
