Scooping the Garage

6 May

As sad as it is that my garage was turned into a barn, I finally got around to starting to scoop out my garage.

I’ve even made more progress since this picture was taken Saturday evening.

I made a lot of progress.  Of course, I can’t do much more until I get rid of the bale.

It’s what I’m feeding Harley, so it will be a while.


I will say, I’m getting the compost bin filled up.  Hopefully, it settles down so I can keep scooping the other side of the garage and the Love Shack.  Of course, the goats had to check it out.

Some checked it more thoroughly than others.


And if I didn’t have one injury from the day, it wouldn’t be normal, so Snickers managed to climb onto the soap room ceiling.  That is exactly why I always try to keep the doors all shut, but that’s hard to do when scooping it out.  He seems to have hurt his foot jumping down.

Usually, I end up getting a ladder and helping him down, but he didn’t even meow to let me know he was ready.  That means another vet visit tomorrow.  Sigh…


She Started a Trend

I shared yesterday that Cutie snuck out to the Back Forty.  The next day my mom sent me a text at work that I had a bunch of goats in the Back Forty.  Sure enough.  I got home today to find a few goats out there in pasture.

Blaze, Caroline, Annie, and Cookie

They saw me and came running because they didn’t want to miss their evening grain.

Astra shinnied right under the fence again.  Sidney was waiting her turn, and so was Haley.

Haley wasn’t so sure about fitting back through that little hole even though that’s where they went out.

Some goats just walked up to the gate to wait for me to let them in.

Haley still thought she should be able to make it back under there.  I’ve got news for her.  It’s a lot harder to shinny up hill.

I did go up and open the gate for those bigger girls (like my mom did yesterday).


I had to be careful not to let other goats out.  Haley finally decided she was going to have to come through the gate.

Blaze, however, was a bit concerned about getting beaten up by Stormy.  She decided she was going to make it back through that tiny spot.


She did it!  And that is why they say if you throw water at a fence and it gets through, a goat can get through.

The weather became nice enough today that some goats and llamas noticed that I had left the gate open to the north paddock when I moved the bucks.

Annie, Myson, and Ava

They were exploring when I came out.  Maybeline was too busy looking for good stuff to nibble on to notice me.


Same with Caroline, who had discovered the salt/mineral block in the building.


When I went up there, everyone decided to come check it out in case I was bringing them a snack.

A couple of them found the left overs from the round bale the boys had been eating.  They didn’t find it too exciting.



No new snack, but they did get fed today.  Don’t believe them when they try to say I’m starving them.
