Critters Around the Farm

22 Apr

Here’s a few of the critters I’ve seen around the farm lately.

Hope you have had a very happy Earth Day!

We Got Snow!

13 Mar

Well, the snowstorm that is headed for the east coast passed through here.  Luckily, we did not get the huge amounts they are expecting elsewhere.

It was enough, however, to keep me busy preparing for it and making sure moms and kids were all in and had plenty to eat.

Minnie (and Cutie outside the barn)

Mary (I had to make another pen in the building for her and her triplets)

Our warm temperature for today was just at the freezing point, but it came overnight.  It’s cold and windy now.  That didn’t stop the goats from trying to go out to pasture.  I tell you, they didn’t last long.  Everyone is eating hay like they’ve never seen winter before.

The one that really surprised me was the pup.  Sky seems to be a snow baby!  If only he had a winter coat, he’d have been happy to stay out all day (instead of ten minutes).


The cats were not so happy.

Bob can’t decide if he really wants to go out or not.

It did bring a lot of birds around.  The weather has been so nice that I haven’t had to feed them.  I did put out food, but it might take them a little time to find it.





I’m guessing we’ll still have snow by then.  It’s not supposed to warm up again until about Thursday.

I do hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items listed at the top of my side bar.

Friday’s Hunt v3.3

20 Jan

Welcome back to Friday’s Hunt.  I want to thank everyone who joined in last week.  I had a lot of fun visiting everyone who linked up.  It’s very simple.  Anyone can participate.  The link opens at 7pm Central time and will close Sunday at 7pm, so you have plenty of time to enter.  Hopefully, you’ll be inspired to visit some of the other entries.

If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week the topics will be:  Starts with D, Week’s Favorite, and close up.   I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top.  I am crazy busy with teaching and working on the farm right now, but I will make sure to visit all participants.  Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with C:  All of the “C” goats on the farm:  Casey, Cash, Chachi, Charlie, Charlie, Cheddar, Chili, Chip, Chip, Chipper, Chocolate, Chuck, Cinderella, Cindy Lou, Cinnamon, Clark, Clover, Clyde, Cocoa, Coffee, Comet, Cookie, Cookie, Copper, Cora, Coral, Cowboy, Cupcake, Cupid, Curley, Curly 8, Custer, Cutie, Cutie, Cutter, and Cyrus.  The names in bold still live on the farm.



Week’s Favorite:  Last weekend before the ice storm, I went for a lovely walk in pasture.  My Bob cat joined me.  It was nice.  Bob is such an awesome cat when we’re out in pasture.  The rest of the time, he’s pretty much a jerk.

Odd Angle:  I’m kind of grasping at straws here.  It was kind of an odd angle for a photo, but it was an even more odd angle and tight squeeze to get out the door.  Minnie Pearl was basking and had no intention of moving.
