June Babies

3 Jul

For some reason, my June babies don’t go out to pasture with their moms.  That means they don’t have good browse to eat and start developing their rumens.  Well, except Zoe who decided to play in my yard.

I try to put hay out for them sometimes.

They do nibble on it.

They mostly like to play in it or take a nap on it.

Still, I keep giving them some.  I really wish they would go out to pasture though.

If you’re interested in joining me for Friday’s Hunt, this week’s items are listed at the top of my side bar.

A Meal for a Queen

It does my heart good see the goats out in pasture nibbling on the new shoots of green grass.

Goats like to nibble on wood.  It’s good fiber and roughage.

Oh, Minnie.  Maybe we’ll just focus on Casey while you pig out.

Really.  You shouldn’t chew with your mouth open like that.

Wood_3643ewsSuch manners from the herd queen!

I would love for you to come back and join me for Friday’s Hunt.  The items for this week are at the top of my side bar.  I’ve also added a tab at the top with a more in-depth explanation.

Today, I’m sharing with Jenny for Warm Heart Wednesday.

Cinderella and the Hay Mountain

14 Feb

Cinderella is Cookie’s little doe.  Cookie didn’t do a great job of caring for her kids, so Cinderella was a bit small and the heat was hard on her and I’ve been babying her.  She still gets to come into the chicken coop to eat her grain, and I let Moose and her into the middle of the barn while I’m feeding everyone their hay.  She seems to like it.

When we filled my barn last summer, I had hoped there would be nearly enough to get me through two years.

With the steer down here and the way everyone loves hay, my mountain is getting smaller.

I’ve also had to feed extra because of all the cold weather.

Don’t worry though.  We have plenty to get us through the winter.
