In the Pasture

23 Nov

It was nice to be home on the weekend without horrible cold, rain, or snow.  I decided to go for a short walk in pasture.  Of course, it was really short because the goats were right there on the front hill.

They are happy to be able to go back out to pasture to eat again.

I’m glad not to have to feed them hay again.

The llamas were right out there on the front hill too.

Aurora, Odie, and Maybeline

They spend so much time in pasture and it’s dark so early that I hardly get to see them right now.

I miss the long days when I get to do these kinds of walks after work.

Moms and Kids

22 Oct

Even though my March babies are getting really big, they are still their moms’ kids.

Penelope likes her food pan too much to use her maa as a pillow.

I love the way goats have such strong family bonds.

Still Waiting

22 Aug

I swear, these llamas drive me crazy.

Maybeline (front) and Odie (back)

I think she’s close.  Really, I do.  She’s getting heavier, isn’t she?

But maybe she isn’t even bred.  You can’t tell with a llama.

Now I’m thinking Odie is starting to look close too (based on her vulva and even more cranky behavior).

At least, even with an oopsie kid, I can usually tell when a goat is pregnant and getting close.  Heck, when Sallie had Annie as an oopsie baby, I even had her due date figured out exactly.

I knew Pistol was close with her oopsie kids and had her shut in (both times).

But these two snooty llamas just keep their secrets to themselves.

Aurora

I wonder if Aurora would be able to keep a secret that well.
