Just Some More

19 Mar

I can’t believe we’re already at the end of the week.  It goes so fast when I’m home kidding.

The sunset is moving back north.

Bambi has started getting meloxicam for her old bones.

I saw a bluebird in pasture (no meadowlarks yet).

It will be weird going to work after a two weeks. I’ll wish I were still home.  Just saying.

Finally Friday

4 Mar

With the long conference week at work, I’m even more happy than usual for Friday.

Here’s to the weekend!

Derecho Hay

16 Feb

I went into winter with a full barn.  The loft in the barn was all still filled with hay that we made right after the derecho.  The goats go crazy for this hay.


Especially the bales that were made on the bottom.  They are full of cottonwood leaves and little twigs and branches.

Penelope and Perdita (see all the twigs left on the ground after they’ve chewed the bark off)

When they hear me bring out the hay that rustles like dried leaves, they come racing.


I have to make lots of small piles to try and let everybody get some of this yummy hay.

Hera, Astra, Perdita, Popcorn, Chiffon, and Flora

Of course Pretzel gets to snack on it in the barn.

They are all going to be disappointed because (by the time this post goes up) we are out of that hay.


Now they’ll just have to make do with regular hay.  And I hope they never, ever get derecho hay again.
