A Beautiful Weekend

7 Nov

We had beautiful weather this weekend; honestly, it was way warmer than it should be this time of year.

They noticed me and had to come see what I was up to.

Antigone seems to want to know why I’m spying on them.

I took advantage of that to go walking in pasture both Saturday and Sunday.

I also decided to take advantage of the good weather and let Gidget out of the Love Shack.  She’s been in there for two weeks, and she is much better.  I’m not sure how much more improvement I’ll see, so I decided it was best to let her rejoin the herd and be happy. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll still keep trying to get her extra food.

It’s like Grand Central with all the goats who think they should get to go into the milk room for extra food.

Tansy still gets to come in for a bit extra food too.

Of course, I also found Astra making out with Xerxes at the fence.  That means she’s in heat and didn’t settle for spring break babies.  Dang.

The neighbors have their corn harvested, so they let the cows out on the field.

It looks like the fence is going to keep them out of my field this year; plus I don’t have corn out there for them to snack on, so they are content where they are at.

My goats seem pretty happy with the weather and pasture too.

I’m not sure how many more of these nice days we’ll have this fall.

A Couple of Visitors

18 Dec

Last Saturday, I glanced out the kitchen window and was a bit puzzled when I saw this.

That’s my cornfield.  I don’t have cows anymore.  I called my nephew, and he said he’d try and figure out where she came from.

I hiked out to greet her and discovered there were two ladies visiting.

I guessed they came from across the fence.  That’s where they belong.  The cows below are on the proper side of the fence.

About that time, the manager of the farm came driving in.  Apparently, they thought the corn in my field looked way better than what they have on their side of the fence.  There is a lot of corn left after the storm made it hard to harvest.

It was a bit disappointing to see one of them just walk back through the fence, so we might have to do something about that.  But for now, it was nice to have visitors.
