A Few Leftovers

5 Dec

I’m getting desperate to do blog posts this week with the lack of opportunities to take pictures, but luckily I have a few leftovers.  This is a three-generation picture:  Gidget, Hera, and Blaze.

Cupid is actually deciding to be nice to me.

Especially if she thinks she’ll get a bite of sweet feed.

Annie was using the broken board to scratch her nose.

Reva sporting her silver shoe and making me feel guilty.

Here’s Margarita and Maggie.  I know I’ve shared a similar photo, but these two are just so pretty.

I was wrong about Caroline being in heat.  She just came back into heat last weekend, so she’s not going to have an oopsie baby during second spring break.

I’m not sure if that is good or bad.  If I’m having a second spring break, I guess I’d rather have a bunch because the kids and moms do better when they are born earlier.

The Morning After

27 Oct

Whenever I move goats around the morning after is a bit scary when I go out to see if everyone is where I put them.  It didn’t take me long to get my answer.  When Zinnia came to get milked, she had her little Joy with her.  Surprisingly, Joy wasn’t nursing, so I got my milk!  I also let her come in with her mom, so it might help her keep calming down.  You can’t say I haven’t tried with this one.

Joy and Zinnia

All the little bucks were still shut in.

Chiffon was back snuggled up with Cookie and her twin sister, Marge.

It looked like Wendy had quit picking on Tink (for now).

Then I saw that Socks was back with her maa, Bonnie.

Socks and Bonnie

It was interesting to see that Bonnie’s twin sister, Blaze, has been letting Socks hang with her since Bonnie was up north.  Goats are really amazing with family (sometimes).

Penny was being nice to let Venus stay with her.  I’m glad since she just lost her maa, Vinnie, and is still recovering.  She and Vulcan had also never been out in the big pasture.

In the afternoon, though, I noticed both of my little boys I had shut in the greenhouse had escaped.

Dang little bucks.

The Healthy Ones

2 Oct

It seems like I’m always talking about who’s not doing well. It’s because I tend to obsess over them and how to get them back to healthy.  That means I tend to neglect all the healthy goats.  Here’s a few of them.
