8 Oct

The goats and llamas start the day by having breakfast out in pasture.


Edith, Kate, and Antigone


Twins: Marin and Popcorn


Onyx (doing quite well with the horn apparatus) and Victorica


The bit of rain we’ve had lately has really helped to improve make it nice and green again.

Four Farewells

3 Oct

Today we said farewell to four more kids.  I had to get the last of the bucks off the farm because I don’t want any more oopsie kids.

Seven, Stitch, Octavius, and Archie

Of course, Popcorn had to follow us out and eat scrub mulberry supervise while we tagged and loaded the boys.


It was a dreary and drizzly ride to the sale barn, but they stood right behind the cab and didn’t get very wet.  I felt bad, but I really need to not have any more bucks running around.

Friday evening I also caught Pistol’s girls and shut them in to sell.  But they cried for their mom. Their mom cried for them.

I felt really guilty, so they are still here.  But they will be leaving at some point.

The other moms didn’t seem to mind their kids leaving at all.  I’m trying to decide whether or not I want to attempt milking Aphrodite or Joy.


My little Purl, however, was quite frustrated looking for her brother.  Poor girl.


She’s lucky that she’s staying on the farm.

Purl and Hilda

I’m sure she and Hilda will be fine together.

Looking Like Fall

30 Sep

It’s really looking like fall around here.  The corn is turning.  It certainly provides contrast from the green of the buffer strip.


The bean harvest is under way.

I’m not sure how much color we’ll have this fall with the drought conditions.

Dead tree hill

A lot of the trees have already lost leaves; it’s way too early for them to have lost their leaves.  And so many have just been lost.  I’m trying to figure out how to plant about twenty-five trees and keep them safe from goats.

This tree turned because it was toppled in the derecho (Antigone and Casey)

But it’s still fall, and it’s one of my favorite seasons!

pie pumpkins and butternut squash

Our weather has actually turned back to feeling like fall too!
