The Rest of the Moving

21 Apr

Along with getting all the goats back together, I wanted to move Aurora to the big pasture too.  I finally had to go bribe her with food to get her to come up and through the barnyard to join everyone else.

Hopefully, the girls can all get along.

Aurora, Odie, and Maybeline

After I moved Aurora, I could let Tony and Pluto out of the garage.

Tony and Pluto

It’s about time.  They’ve been in there since the first of the year.

Pluto is such a little cream puff.  He was sick last fall and has been shut up, so he’s really got no muscles.


The first thing Tony did was to find a place for a good dust bath.

I also wanted to get my big boys back on the front pasture so that my north paddock can grow.

Xerxes, Fionn, Zeus, and Anubis

Thankfully, they are easy to move.

Everyone seems to be getting along.

Zeus and Pluto

They are enjoying all the green grass too.


She’s Got the Moves

10 Apr

Snow White is Caroline’s sassy little girl.

She is an extremely active and silly young princess.

Her frequent playmates are Squanto and Sacagewea.

Snow White, Sacagewea, Squanto

Snow White has quite the impressive moves.

The rest of the kids are trying to keep up, but they just can’t bust a move like Snow White.

It’s fun to watch this little dance competition.

While I’m Shoveling

18 Feb

I made sure to get out early yesterday and shovel before the goats tromped all through the snow packing it down.  So what were they doing while I was busy trying to make their life easy?

Maisie and Moose

Most of them are just lying around being lazy.


Or using future grandkids as a pillow.

Reva and Litha

Some of them just stand around.


Poor Sidney was stuck standing in the snow.  I am NOT shoveling that side.  I can feed them where I cleaned off, and I’m not doing any more.


Maggie and Margarita were watching me work (Myson was too, but I was too busy working to take his picture.  After I quit shoveling, there was no entertainment.)

It doesn’t take long for them to come out and explore once I’ve cleaned a place for them.

Hilda (Annie in back snacking on the hay I uncovered)

Yes, Hilda.  I did shovel that path just for you.
