Getting Things Done

12 Jun

I’m kind of getting life out of order on here because I keep interrupting things to give you baby updates. Wednesday morning my dad went and brought home my Ranger!  Yay!

I immediately loaded it up with my fencing supplies.

It actually took just a short time to get the fence over the ditch repaired.

Then I went back up to the barnyard and opened the panel.  It took all of about five seconds for Cinnamon to head out into the lane.

Then it was a flood of goats and llamas.

 

The llamas took off

The goats browsed their way out.

I really had to get them back out there because my boys didn’t have a lot of food left.  I’ve been supplementing with sweet feed and hay.

So I immediately moved on to the next step.  I put panels around the cattle tank and across the barn door.  Then I opened the north paddock and bribed Flower and Cutie to go into the birds’ pen.

While they were in there eating sweet feed, I had the bucks come through the garage and drive and barnyard into the north paddock.

This is the usual: Xerxes on his own and the other three sharing a pan.

They were quite happy with their new accommodations.  Then I let Flower and Cutie out of the pen I had them shut in.

Cutie seemed to wonder why she had been kicked out of her plush accommodations with room service.

But I still had more moving and work to do…

An Afternoon Outside

19 Apr

Saturday afternoon was not quite as cold as it had been, and we were supposed to have rain and snow on Sunday, so I decided that Saturday afternoon was the best time to give Venus and Aphrodite and their babies some outside time.

Cody disagreed.  That boy does not stay with his mom or answer her.  He just finds a corner and sleeps.

Eventually Cody did come out.

Aphrodite and her girl was happy to be out there.

Xerxes wondered why he was shut out of the buck room.  It’s a delicate balance of sharing space and pasture and trying to get the kids ready to leave the garage.

I am so ready to have all the goats out of the garage.

I hope you’ll forgive me for neglecting the main herd, but these kids are just too cute.
