Making Lotion

23 Apr

I finally managed to make three batches of lotion this weekend.

I shut Ghost and Norm away from their moms last night.

Cinnamon and Norm

 They were not happy about missing late supper, bedtime snack, midnight milkshakes, two am bingies, and early breakfast.

Ghost

Cinnamon and Stormy were pretty happy to be able to go in for some grain this morning.

Stormy

Don’t worry.  I made sure to leave enough milk for them to have their second breakfast.

Now I just need to to this again so I can finish making another three batches.  At least it was a start!

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items at the top of my side bar.

Old Goat’s Home

16 Apr

Minnie Pearl is feeling all of her thirteen years.  It’s hard to go out to pasture all day, so she was staying in the barnyard in the afternoon.  I decided to give her some hay since she was the only goat up here.  The llamas showed up.

Then there were a few sprinkles, so the rest of the goats came back up.  You’ll notice that Minnie is nowhere near her hay.

I’m pretty sure Maybeline is not happy with me taking a picture of her stuffing her face, but that’s what she gets for stealing Minnie’s hay.

So where is Minnie?  I put her in the north paddock.

I was hoping to wait another week or so to let it grow out more (since I just took the bucks off there), but she needs 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.

Remixing the Herd

9 Apr

I’ve had my moms on the front pasture with their kids so they could take them out while they ate and not have to worry about keeping track of them in the Back Forty.

The rest of the goats have been on the Back Forty with the llady llamas.  Well, Friday evening, I mixed them all together.

It went fairly well.  Most of the kids stayed in the barnyard.  I think Bambi was the designated babysitter.

Bambi and lots of kids

Others went out to pasture and found all kinds of new things to bounce on.

Norm

Bambi finally went out to pasture, but she didn’t bring the kids, so they all ended up on the front pasture.  It was a bit noisy when they couldn’t get to their maas.

Finally, everyone ended up back in the barnyard.

Wanda

February kids met March kids, and there was a bit of head butting, but it’s all good!

Until I have to mix things up again.

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.
