Some of the Gang

31 Jul

Just some leftovers from the last week.

This is how Bob has spent pretty much every day this summer.

I am working on kicking the geese out of the chicken building.


the young hens are getting braver


I know it’s kind of a photo overload, but I had a lot of leftovers this week.

The Power of Peanuts

28 Jul

Goats love peanuts.  This is a good thing.  I’ve shared that this is how I give goats copper, and heaven knows I have to do that often enough.


But peanuts are also the thing that helps to win over hearts.


I have been trying to get Chiffon to like me for over a year now.  Her sister, Marge, was the big problem.  Every time I got close, Marge would run and Chiffon would follow.


Well, the last round of copper was different.  Chiffon discovered peanuts.

She LOVES peanuts.  She’s even willing to let me pet her in case it results in peanuts as a reward.

She’d follow me anywhere for peanuts.

Unfortunately, you have to be fast around here or someone else might eat it first.

I think Chiffon inherited her love of peanuts from her maa, Cookie.

Or it’s just a goat thing.

Hot, Hazy Days

3 Jul

We have certainly reached the hot, humid days of summer where my camera fogs up the second I step out the door.

Fogged over Hera with Reva and Butterscotch in the back

It’s the kind of weather where you can almost hear the corn growing.

Front to back: Sonny, Cher, and Addie

Our temperatures are near 90°F (32.22°C), and the dew point is tropical.

Sisters from another mother: Moira and Venus


Cinquain (trying to lick Xerxes’s salt block), Seven and Joy


It’s the kind of weather that makes me want to stay inside, and even the goats and llamas are feeling it.



Chiffon is really getting a lot nicer now that her sister is gone.

It looks like this trend is going to continue for the next couple of weeks.
