The Boys

22 Nov

My boys are such sweet guys–the bucks and the wethers.

Zeus: “What? There’s a fence between us. I’m being good.”

Myson

Well, except for Xerxes.

Xerxes

At least he’s handsome.

Staying Put

16 Nov

I am so happy to say that Zeus is staying put!

Zeus

He hasn’t been out since I re-tied and added more panels to the greenhouse pen.

You look like a redneck with all that twine, Zeus.

It’s going to be a long winter for him shut in there, but he is not going to keep breeding my old ladies.  They can’t take that.

He’s also going to be lonely because I sold his company.

Vulcan

The last two little boys left the farm this morning.

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.

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.
