While I’m Shoveling

18 Feb

I made sure to get out early yesterday and shovel before the goats tromped all through the snow packing it down.  So what were they doing while I was busy trying to make their life easy?

Maisie and Moose

Most of them are just lying around being lazy.

Clover

Or using future grandkids as a pillow.

Reva and Litha

Some of them just stand around.

Cutie

Poor Sidney was stuck standing in the snow.  I am NOT shoveling that side.  I can feed them where I cleaned off, and I’m not doing any more.

Maggie and Margarita were watching me work (Myson was too, but I was too busy working to take his picture.  After I quit shoveling, there was no entertainment.)

It doesn’t take long for them to come out and explore once I’ve cleaned a place for them.

Hilda (Annie in back snacking on the hay I uncovered)

Yes, Hilda.  I did shovel that path just for you.

A Day for Basking

23 Dec

Today brought beautiful sunshine, which was welcome after several cloudy days.

It was a perfect day for basking if you could find a space out of the wind.

Of course, a couple of goats thought it would be a good day for a brawl in pasture.

Bambi and Litha

You know, they are goats after all.

This and That

Just some extra pictures from the last week or so.

Sky’s favorite toy is still his Jolly Ball.  Best toy ever!  And, yes, I almost got hit by the ball and run over by the dog.

These two girls are still cranky whenever they see Tony.  I am almost afraid to hope they are bred though, and it’s still a really long time before they would be due.

Odie and Maybeline

I think I shared that I couldn’t touch Hera anymore after I caught her and put the horn apparatus back on her.  She finally got to where I could pet her again, and then I had to catch her and give her a dose of copper.  You guessed it.  I can’t touch her again.  I am certainly planning on locking her in with a buck in a small space so I can get her back to being friendly.

Clover and Wanda

Leo is doing well.  We thought he might have diabetes last spring, but he is actually doing quite well now.  I’m thrilled and amazed since he’s pushing eighteen.

I am very happy to report that we haven’t had any coyote attacks out in pasture.  The goats are out there almost as soon as the sun comes up, but everyone has stayed safe.  I’m going to credit the fence away from the woodlot.

The good news about Zinnia not being bred is that I can keep milking her all the way until the first of May if she stays in milk.  I’m not sure she will, but I can try.

A woodpecker climbing up the maple tree–even if I just get to see their back side, I enjoy them.  The red-bellied woodpeckers are my favorites.

I told you I was going to take lots of pictures on the weekends to make sure I could blog through the week.
