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.

Friday’s Hunt v2.22

25 Nov

Welcome back to Friday’s Hunt.  I want to thank everyone who joined in last week.  I had a lot of fun visiting everyone who linked up.  It’s very simple.  Anyone can participate.  The link opens at 7pm Central time and will close Sunday at 7pm, so you have plenty of time to enter. Hopefully, you’ll be inspired to visit some of the other entries.

If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week, the topics will be:  Starts with W, Week’s Favorite, and machine.  I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. I am crazy busy with teaching and working on the farm right now, but I will make sure to visit all participants.  Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with V.  My beautiful Victoria.

Week’s Favorite.  My beautiful herd queen, Minnie Pearl.

Thankful.  My three little yard goats are not going out to pasture with the herd (on the back hills), but they are going out and eating on Dead Tree Hill.  I’m also thankful for the llamas that are still keeping the coyotes away.

Now it’s your turn!

Llamas in the Barnyard

19 Nov

I hardly ever get to see the llamas because they spend so much time out in pasture.  They seem to come up mid morning and lounge in the barnyard for just a short time.

Then it’s back out to pasture.

I hope I can shut them in the barnyard this winter so I can spend some quality bonding time with them.
