More of Our Snowy Weekend

13 Jan

I really do enjoy having some snow.  When it isn’t a blizzard.

Pluto is just so stinking cute! And sweet!

Pluto

Sky doesn’t seem to even notice the snow.

He doesn’t care if it melts on him when he comes back inside and takes a nap.

The goats are not quite as happy with it, but they will survive.

Fionn

They all got plenty of food given to them.

Fionn and Wanda

They do have shelter (as long as I can keep my cranky girls from fighting).

Dolly and Lily

Like I said, the geese don’t even notice the snow.

This is a perfect snow to sit back and enjoy!

December Rains

27 Dec

I am not a fan of December rain, but we’ve really had rain.  It started Wednesday morning around eleven o’clock.

It stopped the next morning, but it looks like we might still get a bit more before it’s all done.

At least we were lucky enough to have time each morning for everyone to go out to eat.

Maybeline (and Lily)

I hate trying to feed them hay in the mud.

Lily

Although, they would prefer not to have to go out when it’s like this.

Out to Pasture

25 Dec

Sunday morning, with the sunshine, I decided it was time to get Cupid out to pasture.  It was made easier by the fact that Antigone didn’t make it out to pasture with the herd either.

Antigone and Cupid

They just followed me as I walked out to find the herd.

They would stay with me.  If they got ahead, they’d pause and wait for me to catch up.  Finally, they saw the herd and took off to join it.

I think they were enjoying themselves.

Cupid

Cookie, Antigone, and Cupid

It would be better for Cupid if she could supress her Nubian loud mouth and not draw attention to herself.  Every time she’d speak, Maggie would try to chase her down.

They did finally settle down a bit.

It won’t be long before we’re all integrated.
