Time for Leftovers!

8 Oct

This week was my parent-teacher conferences at work, so I am quite excited for the weekend!  I’ve missed not being home in the evenings.  And it means I haven’t done much to blog about, so here’s just some random thoughts with leftover pictures.

Bob is still struggling with getting back to his usual cranky self. He needs to come in the house and hibernate for the winter.

I really am trying to decide who to breed and who to retire and who to give a year off.  I’m pretty sure Gidget is getting a year off or retiring.  I hope the copper I gave last weekend kicks in and helps Reva and Gidget look better.  They really need it.

These two are happy to be together again.  Other than when Astra goes to get bred, they shouldn’t have to be separated again.

Astra and Perdita

I am excited because I’m soon going to be doing a couple of photo shoots.  I will get to photograph a little girl!  Wish I could get my camera replaced before then, but I guess as long as my old faithful just keeps working, I’ll call it good.

Finally, just some more of the goats out in pasture.

Everyone was hanging out in the summer barn

Zinnia is still giving me a decent amount of milk.

Happy weekend!

Confusing the Critters

27 Sep

We are finally mostly done with the roof, which takes us to the deck work.

My dad even came out and helped with some of the tearing apart. But my dog and cat were quite confused.



I can’t blame them.  It was mostly gone by the weekend.

I think we’re all ready to have the construction done.  Then we don’t want any more storms.

Cats and Dog

20 Aug

Bob is driving me crazy.  He’s had so many fights this summer, and then there’s mornings he doesn’t show up.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve spent half a day wandering the farm calling to him, afraid he’s hurt.

Bob Cat

I wish I could make him a house cat, but that would be dangerous to the other cats, the dog, and me.

Rocky on the table; Tiger on the stool; Bob on the floor

You can see in the picture above that Tiger seems a bit nervous.  He does get nervous around Bob.  That kitten is usually tackling Rocky and doing whatever he wants.  I even got him another scratching toy to try and give him some entertainment besides annoying Rocky.

I will also say that food has really darkened him up.  He was mostly a gray color when I found him, but now he’s a more traditional brown tiger cat.

I would hate for Rocky to feel left out, so here he is in his favorite position.  He cracks me up.

One reason I was so surprised that my dog was actually good when he got with the goats is because his hobby is barking at goats and trying to get them to jump at him.

Maisie and Sky

It doesn’t work with Maisie.  She has no time for his nonsense, and she just ignores him.

I wish they all did.  And a bonus of Sky and Tiger.

They do make me laugh.
