Friday Afternoon Leftovers

15 Oct

Just a bit of stuff from around the farm:

Antigone looks really good after a year off from having babies.

Mrs. Goose

She’s molting right now.

Hilda and Purl. I think Purl is happy her little brother and sister are shut away.

Maybeline and Aurora

Mr. Peacock

He’s starting to grow his feathers back in.

Odie

My sweet girls–Haley and Pretzel

We are trying to get back to normal after all the repair work from the derecho. (Sky)

Another Day in Pasture

12 Oct

I am trying to walk more.  It’s been a rough year to try and get out and just walk and enjoy pasture, so I’m trying to do more of that.

Silly wethers–Myson and Casey

It makes me happy to climb the hill and see the herd out there.

The herd

This is the back hill that was just made into hay.

With the tiny bit cooler weather and the little rain we’ve had, it’s still growing.  That’s good.

Daisy

If we don’t get early snow and ice, the goats will still be able to feed themselves off pasture until the end of the year.

Penelope, Cupid, and Zinnia catching up to the rest of the herd

That also makes my life much easier.

A Change of Seasons

22 Sep

I was going to do a wordless Wednesday, but let’s face it, I like rambling about my farm and animals.  So here’s Pretzel snuggled up with Pongo.  She has done really well at finding someone to snuggle with.  Unfortunately, she’s reached the age where the big goats are looking at her like she’s fair game.  These goats and their fighting/bullying is driving me crazy.

Pretzel and Pongo

Here’s a bonus of Thunder.  The extra horn and ears belong to his brother, but they wouldn’t pose so I could actually see them both.

Thunder

They could take posing lessons from my sweet boy, Pluto.

Pluto

I had to chuckle at Haley up in the manger napping.  I am so glad she’s recovered and done well after the surgery on her ankle.  I really do adore her.

Haley

Dolly and Aurora were lounging in the barn doorway Sunday morning.

It ended up being another scorching day before the rains cooled us down into more fall-like temperatures.

Speaking of which, happy Mabon!  It’s the first official day of fall.  Soon my beans will be harvested and it will be the end of the farming season.  Well, as much as it ever ends.

This little wooly bear showed up.  I’m not sure what a solid cream means. Hopefully, not stupid record-breaking cold.

I’m ready for cool weather and shorter days to hibernate.

Tiger–just because

Bob (with another injury on his leg; this one did not require a vet visit)

Hopefully, it means Bob will come in for the winter and quit fighting too.
