Bad Weather

29 Nov

We’re having bad weather caused by the same system that’s been moving across the entire country–wind, cold, rain, and snow.  It’s not the kind of weather I wanted for my Thanksgiving break because it’s impossible to do much outside.  Luckily, the goats and llamas are still going out to pasture to eat, so I’m not feeding hay.  That’s good because I hate feeding hay in mud.

When they’re not out eating, they are mostly standing around in the barn.

It’s too muddy for us to get the equipment in to clean out the back part of the barn and get it bedded down.  Heck, they’re still trying to finish getting the corn out of the fields.  The goats still stand around back there to stay out of the wind and rain.

They also just stand around in food pans,

which makes them a muddy mess when I want to try to feed the goats.

Or they try to find little bumps of land that might be better drained and less muddy.

It’s not fun to have such a muddy barnyard this time of year.

And we’re expecting more rain and snow right up until Monday when I go back to work.

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.
