Goats and Fences

7 Apr

There’s a saying that if you throw a glass of water at a fence and water gets through, a goat can get through.  Well, I think there’s some truth to that.  I’ve had my mom separated from the rest of the herd, but things keep happening.

Moms in front; everyone else in back

Hera has figured out how to go back and forth so that she can eat grain with both groups.

She must have shown Aphrodite where she gets through because Aphrodite ended up back on the side where my moms are.  Apparently, she can’t get back through.

At one point, Dolly put herself on the side with the rest of the retired girls.  That was good because she’s been picking on everyone, and I was going to have to figure out how to move her over there away from the moms.

Then one day I got home from work and found Margarita on the wrong side.  At least her Peanut is little enough to follow her anywhere.

The next morning, Daisy had joined the moms.  I don’t know how.

Then Harley and Cupid ended up on the wrong side.

I’m starting to think I should just give up and put everyone back together.  But then Friday when I got home, I found Maggie with the moms, and she wanted to fight with Harley.

Instead, I sorted everyone out again.  My moms still need extra care.

Here are some of the extra pictures I ended up with when I was trying to get a whole week’s worth for blog posts this past week.  Coral is positively the most kissable goat I have.  All I have to do is say, “Kiss me, Coral” and she puckers up.  Seriously.

Of course, Myson is always handsome.

The red-headed woodpeckers are my favorites!

Snickers was watching the snow blow during last weekend’s blizzard.

Maybeline hasn’t completely forgiven me yet.  I’m not sure she every will.  Crazy llama.

I keep telling Widow Goose to hang in there.  We’ll get her company this spring.

Annie is getting round.  I hope she has her kid(s) easier than the last time.

Zinnia isn’t having babies until June.  It makes her look positively skinny compared to all the girls who are due next over spring break.

Everyone takes advantage of my trails.  Sometimes it’s hard for me to use them because there are already so many other walking along them.

I think I forgot to mention I had to cut off Stormy’s beard.  There might have been an incident in the old garden right before all of our snow hit.  I feel bad because she had such a gorgeous beard.

Stormy

It was certainly a long week, and I’m glad to be heading into the weekend.  Of course, it’s going to be filled with planning for kidding starting next weekend.

In the Love Shack

8 Jan

I moved Pluto and Anubis to the Love Shack with Hera and Aprhodite.

Pluto, Aphrodite, Hera, and Anubis (Maisie in back)

Hera was the first to be in there with the boys, and she was fine with them; although, she was horrible for me to catch and put in there.

Hera

Honestly, she’s never forgiven me for the horn apparatus.  I’m hoping being in a small space with two sweet boys will help Hera settle down and be friendly again.

Anubis and Pluto

After I added Aphrodite, things got wild.  Aphrodite was not acting like a love goddess.  I finally had to remove her so she didn’t hurt the little bucks.

Aphrodite

I put her in with Zeus and his other girls.

Zeus

He can handle her a lot better!
