Llenny

I think I finally figured out what was wrong with Llenny thanks to the help of the shearer, but it was too late to save him.

I will miss him.

All the Kids

18 Feb

It hit me today that things have been so crazy I don’t think I’ve shown you the Oopsie Kids for a while.  I’m not even sure I’ve told you all of their names.  So here they are!

This is Maisie’s boy, Hercules, all cleaned off and showing off those adorable wattles.

Two of Dolly’s kids, Sidney and Andy, were enjoying playing on mom.

Her third baby, LilyAnn, was looking awfully pleased with basking in the sun.

Ron is in the barnyard (I have a pen for him at night), and he decided to take a nap by Llenny.

Ellie May is no longer getting a supplemental bottle, but she really thinks she should have one.

And there you have all seven of the Oopsie Kids!  They are really getting to that fun age when they like to play and bounce and run all over the place!

Friday’s Hunt v3.7

17 Feb

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 H, Week’s Favorite, and Chiaroscuro or shadow.   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 G:  My goats that start with G–Gaston, Gaston, George, Gidget, Gila, Ginger, Goliath, Gomez, Goober, Grace, Grace, Gretel, Grey, Grover, Grover Jr., Guido, Gus.  Currently, the only goat who starts with G is Gidget.  She’s a good girl.  She’s a lot rounder than the picture below because she’s due to kid on March 6th.

Weekly Favorite: The house kid is doing better.  Ron has gotten to go outside a few times, and I’m hoping to get him back into a pen in the greenhouse this weekend.  I’m not sure he’ll get to nurse his mom again, so he’ll probably always be a bottle kid, but he’s doing much better!

Pink:  Sky loves to lounge on his pink shower mat.  Yep, I sacrificed it to him.
