We Need Grass

1 Oct

The dirt work is done, but I still don’t have grass.  It’s been horribly dry, and I’m trying to figure out the best time to plant.

Right now, it’s only good for finding oak leaves that have fallen.

Or gotten stuck in the fence.

Hopefully, by next spring we’ll have some grass again.


The Bulldozer is Gone

4 Sep

I was kind of getting used to having a bulldozer parked at the edge of my field, but it’s gone!

Maybeline, Farina, Odie

Saturday, he came back and hauled a few more loads of dirt and finished his part of keeping my garage from falling off the cliff.

It looks really good.


I just need my allergies to calm down so I can try to get some grass planted there to take root before next spring’s rains.

Getting the Llamas Some Shelter

20 Aug

With the rain we’ve had this week (Yippee!), I had to get the llamas some shelter.  They were not happy being outside.  It was nice rain that didn’t have lightning, so they were safe, but they were not happy at all.

That means, since I’m not sure when they’ll get back to finish the dirt work and we were supposed to have some potentially severe weather Friday night, I had to make it so the llamas could get some shelter.  It all started with moving Helen.  I put her in the Love Shack.


I had to move the three bucks up with Ollie.

I worked on putting some panels from the edge of the garage (not letting them into that room) down to the fence.  That way I could remove one panel and open a gate and make it so they could come back into the barnyard. It didn’t take too long before they discovered I had removed the panel.

It wasn’t much longer before they figured out they could come back into the barnyard.


They were quite happy to get to come into the barn.


And the goats think it’s pretty nice that they can go out to the Back Forty or the front pasture.

I don’t have to worry about the rain and when they can get the dirt work done because we did get another tenth of an inch Friday night and there’s more in the forecast for Monday.

I hope you’ll come back to join Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items listed at the top of my side bar.
