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

Well, except for Xerxes.

At least he’s handsome.

Just Hanging Out

31 Oct

I love nice weekends when I can just hang out with the goats chilling in the barnyard.

Glad I found time to enjoy it last weekend before we turned so cold.

They Aren’t Helping

15 Aug

We finally woke up to some rain on Monday morning.  We didn’t end up with a lot, but it was enough to keep the goats and llamas in the barn most of the day.

That means I didn’t get to do any scooping.  That’s okay.  I kept busy with making cheese and preparing and freezing beans and making zucchini chips.  Tuesday would be better!

But, Tuesday morning started foggy.  It was so wet that it felt like it was raining even though it wasn’t  That means the goats were in the barn again.

I can’t scoop with them in the barn because some of them act like I’m going to use the potato fork on them.

Others want to know where their treat is or just rub their face up and down my backside (seriously Casey).

Still others seem to think the spot I need to scoop is a nice place for napping.

Again, I kept myself busy with canning and preparing and dehydrating foods.

By late morning, they went out to pasture and I could get some scooping done.  Sadly, my deadline of going back to work is getting here faster than I would like, but it will be done! How do I know that? Yesterday, we had unseasonably cool weather and the critters went out to pasture early, so I took the opportunity to work on the last section.  It’s done!

All I have left to do is touch up the floor and clean out the manger in the second section (behind Hera and Gidget) and put down a layer of cornstalk bedding.

I think it will fit on the spreader.

Seriously, theis is the second full spreader from the barn.  Those llamas really need to keep their poop piles out of the barn.
