Looking Green

14 Apr

My pasture is really starting to look green.

Odie and Maybeline

Everyone is enjoying being out of the barnyard.

Stormy, Maggie, LilyAnn, and Coral (behind)

Astra and a bunch of kids

The kids are really getting big and enjoy running around and nibbling grass with their moms.

As an aside, you can see that my Quonset hut did not survive the strong winds from this past week.

Reva and Michael

I love looking out the window and seeing all the goats happily munching.

Although, it’s still weird seeing the bucks where my garden used to be.

Xerxes, Anubis, and Zeus

I kind of like not having to feed four or five bales of hay everyday too.

Here are some of the extra pictures I ended up with when I was trying to get a whole week’s worth for blog posts this past week.  Coral is positively the most kissable goat I have.  All I have to do is say, “Kiss me, Coral” and she puckers up.  Seriously.

Of course, Myson is always handsome.

The red-headed woodpeckers are my favorites!

Snickers was watching the snow blow during last weekend’s blizzard.

Maybeline hasn’t completely forgiven me yet.  I’m not sure she every will.  Crazy llama.

I keep telling Widow Goose to hang in there.  We’ll get her company this spring.

Annie is getting round.  I hope she has her kid(s) easier than the last time.

Zinnia isn’t having babies until June.  It makes her look positively skinny compared to all the girls who are due next over spring break.

Everyone takes advantage of my trails.  Sometimes it’s hard for me to use them because there are already so many other walking along them.

I think I forgot to mention I had to cut off Stormy’s beard.  There might have been an incident in the old garden right before all of our snow hit.  I feel bad because she had such a gorgeous beard.

Stormy

It was certainly a long week, and I’m glad to be heading into the weekend.  Of course, it’s going to be filled with planning for kidding starting next weekend.

Escape!

I came home Thursday afternoon to discover Daisy butting heads with Annie through the fence.  This was not a good thing because Annie is shut on the far side of the barnyard and Daisy was supposed to be locked in the greenhouse.

There was not a single goat in the greenhouse.

Daisy and Zeus where they belond

That means I had a teenaged hormone crazed buck on the loose with my old ladies.  The ones that it would probably kill to have kids.

Zeus

I took the food pans in the greenhouse and fed everyone in there so I could catch my old ladies and throw them back out.

“What do you mean I’m too old and fat to start having kids now?” Coral.

Of course, by that time, it’s hard to know if he managed to breed any of them, so they will all be getting shots to prevent any oopsie babies.

Luckily, I had already divided the herd of old ladies in half, so it’s only six that were with him.
