Leftovers Again

Wanda always knows how to pose for a perfect picture.

Another of Hilda feeding her kids.  I’m torn between weaning them and leaving them on their mom.  We’ll see.

The morning after I had to put Cutie back up north because she and Ava and Caroline wouldn’t quit fighting, I tried letting her out again.  When the rest of the herd went out to pasture, I let her out to catch up to them.  I assume it went well.  They always fight less when they get put together out in pasture.  I don’t know why.

Cutie on the right when they headed back out after getting fed that night.

I was really surprised to see a hummingbird moth the other evening!

Sorry for the bad pictures; it was getting dark.

It was enjoying the night blooming flowers of the jimsonweed.

While we’re talking insects, it’s time for the monarch migration.  They are everywhere!  I’m glad to see they are having a good year.

A llama just for the fun of it.  I’d hate to leave them out, but they are spending a lot of time out in pasture right now.  I don’t get much time with them between that and work.

As the kids get weaned and sold, my moms go back to their adult companions.  For most it’s their mom.

Athena and Cinnamon

Bambi and Daisy

For others it’s other relatives or friends.

Onyx back to snuggle with her maa, Victoria; Flower gets along with them, and Coral is Victoria’s 3/4 sister.

Chiffon and Venus: sisters from another mother.

But everyone generally has someone to snuggle with or keep them company.

Too Hot to Fight

20 Sep

We were rather warm Saturday, but I thought I’d try letting Cutie out of the north paddock. Now that I think about it, I’m not sure I mentioned that I had her up there after weaning her girls because she was thin and needed some extra help.

I let her out when I fed the goats, and then I figured they’d head right back out to pasture.

Cutie is feeling better

Instead, I ended up with a brawl.

Cutie, Ava, and Caroline (all Sam babies)

Look at that face.  That is a face with a mission to fight.

I decided to put Cutie back up north because they would not leave her alone.

Ava ready for another round.

This explains why I can’t lead her daughter anywhere.  She apparently learned the drop down and just make her drag you technique from her maa.

Caroline was actually a bit helpful at this point.  She bit Cutie’s butt and pulled some fur out which made her get up…for a minute.

Seriously.  I finally got Cutie back up north, but look at how hot and exhausted she is.

The other two still wanted to come fight.  They stood on the other side of the fence to harass her.

Caroline, Ava, and Cutie

Of course, they were panting the whole time.

Don’t look at me like that. I told you it was too hot to be fighting.

I don’t know why on earth the thought they had to fight in this heat, but it’s just too dang hot for that.
