Fionn and Everyone Else

10 Jan

I put Fionn with the girls who are already bred.

Annie (far back), Reva, Joani (laying way back) Victoria (behind), Fionn, Cinnamon (behind him) and a Maisie butt

There’s a couple I’m not sure whether or not the settled, so they are with him too.

Cinnamon

Then he has a couple that he needs to breed.  He loves his job!

I decided to put Penny with him.  She didn’t have a kid last year, but she looks good after the copper capsules, and if she has two, I’ll just make one a bottle kid.

Penny Lou

I also have him with Flower.  She’s never been able to have a kid.  I think she’s a freemartin.

He’s also with the wethers and the llamas.

These guys all get to go out to the big pasture.

Fionn should enjoy that.

Self-Serve

10 Dec

The goats are still going out to pasture to eat.

Even though we’ve had snow, none of it has stuck long.

Athena (front) and Cinnamon

They also enjoy napping out there in the grass rather than on the frozen bumpy barnyard.

I’m glad they can still get to the grass because it means I don’t have to hay them yet.

Flower

That means chores are still pretty easy.

Tony, Harley, and Anubis

I am only haying the two little girls and the group up north.

Antigone and Cupid

Although Antigone and Cupid prefer the sweet feed.

That’s My Milk!

28 Nov

That’s my milk, Athena!

Cinnamon and Athena

I still cannot convine Cinnamon and Athena that I should get all of Cinnamon’s milk.

And since Athena is much more efficient at milking than I am, she gets all the day milk.  I do still get milk from Cinnamon in the morning.

All three of the girls I’m milking are drying up though.

I am getting less than a quart a day.  I’m thinking I might quit soon.  Like today might be my last day.
