Back Forty Decorated for Fall

22 Oct

I usually don’t have a lot of bright colors around my farm, but I think the drought this year has created a bit more color.

I was really enjoying the goats on the bright green with the trees in the background.

It doesn’t get any more beautiful than this.

Then they notice me and just assume I’ve brought them all grain or peanuts or whatever, so they have to come running.

Annie is looking more and more like the real herd queen instead of her mother, Sallie.  It’s just odd; although, it would be nice to have a young queen so we don’t have to go through finding another new queen in a couple of years.

Myson is handsome as always.

I do love this time of year.


We Need Grass

1 Oct

The dirt work is done, but I still don’t have grass.  It’s been horribly dry, and I’m trying to figure out the best time to plant.

Right now, it’s only good for finding oak leaves that have fallen.

Or gotten stuck in the fence.

Hopefully, by next spring we’ll have some grass again.

Caroline Update

10 Jul

Caroline is still hobbling around.  I did finally call the vet back and ask his definition of “a long time.”  Well, a ligament injury can take twice as long as a break to heal.  That means 12 – 16 weeks before she’s completely healed.  That’s if she doesn’t reinjure in.  Poor baby.

At least, he shared that there aren’t a lot of nerves.  She doesn’t walk on it because it feels all loose.  It’s nature’s way of making her rest it.

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items listed at the top of my side bar.
