Snowy Saturday

12 Jan

We haven’t had much snow this winter.  What we have had has quickly melted away.  It started snowing overnight, and we’re actually getting some accumulation.

It’s pretty!

The geese couldn’t care less.  I swear they have rubber feet.

Although, it’s a bit more difficult to make sure all the goats gets in when I have them divided into breeding groups.

Luckily all but one of the groups get along quite well.

Zinnia, Xerxes, and Cookie

Another good thing is that we are not horribly cold with this snow.

Hera

I only have to worry about my “not getting anywhere near a buck” group.

Coral, Pistol and Antigone

Betty Lou was standing out in the snow

all because she didn’t want to walk past Stormy.

Harley is just thrilled to be alive and have company and she’s just happy.  She doesn’t even care about the snow.

Lily and Dolly have claimed the north lean-to.

Astra and Cupid are the two biggest issues.

Cupid

Astra chases Cupid, and she’s also having a hard time getting to find a place for herself.

I have carried Cupid into the building at least twice.

Finally, I showed her she could hide behind the tarp.  That might help.

I’m glad the weather is supposed to be better for the next week.  Then it won’t be long until I can undo my breeding groups.

We finally have a weekend with better weather.  It’s still a bit colder than average for this time of year, but there’s no rain, snow, or horrible wind, so I’m going to say it’s good.

Sidney

With this break in the horrible weather, my nephew delivered some cornstalk bales.

That means, I’ve gotten to freshly bed my buck room, greenhouse, and bird coop.

Fionn

They’re happy now!  You know, because their bedding is yummy to eat.

Caroline and Annie

My nephew is going to try to clean out the cattle lean-to on the barn this week, and then we can bed that down as well.

Astra

Then I should be about as ready as I’m going to be for winter (as long as I can get a few more feet done later in the week when it’s supposed to be warmer than average).
