Good Friday Photo Dump

17 Apr

This is postponed from Friday with the big news of Venus having an oopsie baby and then Aphrodite’s girl arriving.  So it’s an Easter photo dump.

I have a lot of photos left from the last week, so you get another dump.

Tramp

The boys all seem happy on the front pasture. Benji looks like he’s going to slide down the hill.

I think Flora’s happy I emptied the big tub. Makes for a nice napping spot.

They already went through the last new salt/mineral block. Moose is sampling the new one.

2TC is such a cutie!

Bull has a hard time telling Tansy and his mom, Bubbles apart. Tansy does not appreciate it when he gets them mixed up.

Maybeline. Can you tell it was windy that day?

Spunky looks like an Angel, but she’s as wild as her brother.

It was quite the shock to Rosie when her maa came back to the barnyard with a new baby and doesn’t want anything to do with her.

I know I say it a lot, but I seriously cannot get over how big Tiger is at 11 1/2 months.

Can’t do a photo dump without my beautiful Ostara.

Happy weekend!

Evictions

2 Apr

I am seriously ready to do some evictions around here.  First, is Lemuel.  I was planning on keeping him until I could breed him to Rosie next fall.  That would be a perfect kid combo.

Lemuel

But his personality is identical to his grandpa Xerxes.  I am not having another wild buck that I can’t sell.  I’m getting rid of him before we get to that point.  I kid you not, I spent ten or more minutes chasing him around the Love Shack to catch him and give him his copper last weekend.

And it is absolutely an inherited personality.  I swear it is.  I mean he spends his time with my sweet Benji and Frodo.  They both love me.

Frodo

Anyhow, I’m hoping he will be gone in the next couple of weeks.  The second eviction notice is being given to Old Man Winter.  We had another 2+ inches of snow when I woke up Thursday morning.

This time of year, it usually melts quickly, but I took these pictures after I did chores.  It was still here.

We are all tired of the cold and damp.  It’s miserable.  It means more work for chores.

We all demand winter leave and let spring warmth and rain show up.  Seriously, because I am beyond ready to evict the goats from the garage.  They are happy as clams.

But I’m not sure any of my stuff will survive.

Thursday when I got home, someone had discovered and opened the bag of birdhouse gourds.  I picked them up and put them all in the soap room.  Well, there was one that had a little hole eaten in it, so I left it.

When I went back to the garage, I kid you not, Bull was wearing it. His head was completely stuck inside.  I am amazed that he wasn’t panicking, but he was just standing there trying to figure it out.  How I wish I had my camera for that one.

Bull (yes, I really was going to put it back on his head)

By the time I came back out to do a recreation, Coral had eaten the rest of the gourd.

I am really ready to get them out of the garage, but the weather has to cooperate a bit for that to happen.

A Perfect Week for Kidding

14 Mar

Well, after all the drama of the up-and-down temperatures and a really cold end of the week and Saturday, things actually warmed up overnight into Sunday.  It looks like the weather for the next week is perfect for spring break kidding.

And it was just in time because my first girl was due on Sunday. When I went out to let all the girls out on the front pasture, I could tell something was up.

Bubbles had her baby right on schedule.

She has one big buck!

It was the perfect way to start the kidding season.
