When I Got Home

18 May

Yesterday, I hurried home from work, but when I got there it was too late.  It looked like something had died on my driveway.

I opened the garage, went in, and saw naked llamas!  Holy smokes!

The gentleman who came to shear them and do their hooves was early, so he went ahead and sheared them before I got home.

Buster–quit hiding and show us your fancy new shearing.

He did text me later to make sure everything was to my liking.  He also shared that Maybeline decided to just stand in the garage, so he sheared her and trimmed her toes without her ever moving.  That was a first for him.  Everyone else was put in the stanchion to hold them.

They look really good, but I can see how skinny Aurora still is.  Antigone wasn’t sure if that was her friend or not.

Odie and Maybeline were thrilled to be let back out of the garage so they could go roll in the grass.

They did make it out to pasture (but forgot to take Aurora).

Finally, they did all get back together in the barnyard.

They took Aurora with them out to pasture when they went back out again.  I’ll keep a close eye on her, but I hope she will continue to gain weight and strength.

Spring Storms

4 May

We’ve had storms with a lot of rain the last few days.

It’s done wonders for making my grass turn green.

There’s plenty of water in the ditch.  It actually looks like a little stream.

The llamas are happy to be out there most of the time.

It’s good for helping my moms gain weight and feed their kids.

And today we had beautiful sunshine!

Doing Well

28 Apr

I do appreciat all the support from my whining yesterday.  I have to say, there are lots of goats and other animals at Eden Hills who are doing quite well.  I just seem to focus on the ones I’m worried about because they take so much time and energy.  So today, here’s a very short survey of some  residents of the farm who are doing quite well.  The three llamas are enjoying the Back Forty, but they come up and roll in their dust bowl and get a drink and just see what’s going on.

The two bucks are doing quite well.  They do want to know why I didn’t bring grain or peanuts or girls though.

Fionn and Xerxes

The fat boy wethers are all doing well too.  They really are fat.

Myson

I have kids who are growing and doing well and chewing cud.  It’s hard to believe that I could actually think about weaning some if I needed to.

Aphrodite

Margarita looks awesome!  She’s turned into a little snot though.  She doesn’t want my attention at all.

And I have lots of girls that look really good!

Bob is doing great!  He’s not happy with Rocky and Noelle existing, but he’s fine other than that.

And that’s just a very small sampling of who’s doing well.
