Not Just Goats

29 Aug

I hear all the time about how goats will eat anything.  People ask me if they really will eat anything.  Well, it’s not just goats.

I’ve had that drop cord (no good) hanging there for many, many years, and I had to finally be responsible and remove it because the naughty little rump roast was chewing on it.

I 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.

This and That

23 Aug

The Nugget

The nugget is getting big.  I’m still going to insist that the chick has to be a girl (not that I really have a clue yet).  I think it’s safe to say that, even though mama is a Phoenix hen, the egg donor was a barred rock.

The phoenix chickens and the peacocks like to roost in the rafters at night.

I don’t know how mama got her little nugget up there.

But she managed to get it down in the morning too.  I’m impressed.

The Garage.

When I was at work on Friday, another load of dirt got hauled in and added to the front of the garage.  I think I will actually be able to get the Ranger in and out without having to use the all-wheel drive once the gravel gets spread over there.  I can hardly wait until it’s done!

The Rain.

It might be a while until they can do more work because we had another surprise rain Sunday morning and it rained on Monday too.  The mallow is really looking happy with the rain though.

The Calf.

The calf nursing is Purple 11’s baby that was born here.  He’s already getting big!

The Difference Rain Can Make

17 Aug

It’s hard to believe that it was less than a week ago I shared how everything was suffering with drought.  After a couple of inches of rain over the last few days, everything looks much better!

The bean pods are still pretty flat, but you can see where they are starting to think about filling out.

Probably the biggest difference can be seen in the buffer strip where goats and cows aren’t eating.

We could use a whole lot more rain to really get caught up, but I feel much better about things now.

I 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.
