Left Overs

1 Mar

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.

Coral

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!

20 Jan

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.

Snowy Saturday

12 Jan

We haven’t had much snow this winter.  What we have had has quickly melted away.  It started snowing overnight, and we’re actually getting some accumulation.

It’s pretty!

The geese couldn’t care less.  I swear they have rubber feet.

Although, it’s a bit more difficult to make sure all the goats gets in when I have them divided into breeding groups.

Sidney (checking for treats)

Luckily all but one of the groups get along quite well.

Zinnia, Xerxes, and Cookie

Another good thing is that we are not horribly cold with this snow.

Hera

I only have to worry about my “not getting anywhere near a buck” group.

Coral, Pistol and Antigone

Betty Lou was standing out in the snow

Betty Lou

all because she didn’t want to walk past Stormy.

Betty, Litha, Margarita, Maggie, and Stormy

Harley is just thrilled to be alive and have company and she’s just happy.  She doesn’t even care about the snow.

Lily and Dolly have claimed the north lean-to.

Lily (back) and Dolly (front)

Astra and Cupid are the two biggest issues.

Cupid

Astra chases Cupid, and she’s also having a hard time getting to find a place for herself.

Cupid and Astra (front)

I have carried Cupid into the building at least twice.

Finally, I showed her she could hide behind the tarp.  That might help.

I’m glad the weather is supposed to be better for the next week.  Then it won’t be long until I can undo my breeding groups.
