Spring Cleaning

8 Apr

I’m glad we are finally getting some good weather for the weekend because I have a lot of farm spring cleaning to do.  To start, I had to get some gas for the Ranger.  Unfortunately, even once I put gas in it, it didn’t start.  I hooked it to the battery charger for a half an hour, and we’re good to go!

I had walked the fences the other day.

I found a place where the goats could just walk under it.  I can’t believe that I still find these places after so many years, but I do.

I’ll have to see if I can get my dad to help me with the branch on the fence.

Then there’s this.  I actually had some goats get out the other day.  I’m grateful for my neighbor who put them in since I was at work.

I talked to my nephew about driving some wooden posts really deep to give me something to attach my panel to.  I think that’s why it fell–just too much grass pulled it down with the weight.

Until he gets the backhoe back home from a tiling job, my snow fence hobbling will have to hold them.

Back in Pasture

27 Mar

After being cooped up for the rainy weather, the goats were happy to be back out in pasture today.

It’s starting to look green out there!

It’s also looking like shedding season is starting.

Fences are good for rubbing off all that loose fur.

Oh, it feels so good!

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

Out!

6 Mar

I think today has given me enough material for a week’s worth of blog posts, but we’ll just start with my morning.  I am sad to say Stormy’s little buck did not make it.  He was improving and eating, and then he just quit eating, and went to sleep.

I looked out my window this morning and saw goats in the trees at the bottom of my front pasture.  That’s the no-man’s land on my farm.  It’s the tiny square of land that is not fenced because the drainage ditch runs through it.  Needless to say, the goats are not supposed to be there.

I went down and called to them.  I’m so glad they listen to me when they feel like it.

Yep.  They went right through the snow fence.

All of them.  I wasn’t sure Myson was going to fit back through that hole, but they all made it.

Kizzy was bringing up the rear.  I put a piece of panel across the hole.  I did see, though, that I have a lot more work I need to do to the fence.  Soon.

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