Hera

15 Feb

Since I put the two little bucks in with Tony, that means I let Hera out of the Love Shack too.

It took her a little bit to find her maa, Gidget.  Hera seems to be as tall (or taller than) her maa now.

She also had to get reacquainted with the rest of the herd.

I hope she doesn’t go back to being a wild thing.

I also hope she’s going to have Anubis babies in June.

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.

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.

Snow Day Shoveling Snow

13 Feb

I spent yesterday, my snow day, you know, a day of summer break, shoveling snow.  I started close to the house and cleared the deck, sidewalk, and patio. Granted, I only made paths on the patio, but still…

I also made a path to the garage.  I have to say, the front gate did drift shut again, but I got scooped out again!

Then I started my work in the barnyard.  I made a path to the greenhouse (out of the picture to the right) and shoveled around the door.

I also shoveled a big space where I could feed the goats.  I have to say, it wasn’t as bad as I’ve seen sometimes.

I did have to clear in front of the barn door.  Luckily, they stayed in the barn most of the time I was scooping.  Their help is not really as helpful as they think.

I also cleared my red gate leading to the north paddock where my old ladies and young girls are.

I also made a path over to the Quonsit hut.  Pistol and Antigone like to stay in there during the day.

Of course, I had to dig a path to the birds also. I also made a path to the cattle tank so they could get a drink.  Then I made a path to the milk room.  I made a lot of paths.

I even had to scoop the door of the buck room, so the boys and Aurora can get out without walking through huge drifts.  Thankfully, my nephew brought the big snowblower mounted on the tractor to do my driveway because I’m way too old for all this shoveling anymore.  I only had to do from the garage door to a couple of yards out.

Still, it took me most of the afternoon.  By the time I got done with chores after shoveling, the sun was sinking.  I thought it looked like a giant candle flame.
