More of Our Snowy Weekend

13 Jan

I really do enjoy having some snow.  When it isn’t a blizzard.

Pluto is just so stinking cute! And sweet!

Pluto

Sky doesn’t seem to even notice the snow.

Sky

He doesn’t care if it melts on him when he comes back inside and takes a nap.

The goats are not quite as happy with it, but they will survive.

Fionn

They all got plenty of food given to them.

Fionn and Wanda

They do have shelter (as long as I can keep my cranky girls from fighting).

Dolly and Lily

Like I said, the geese don’t even notice the snow.

This is a perfect snow to sit back and enjoy!

Fionn and Everyone Else

10 Jan

I put Fionn with the girls who are already bred.

Ava

Annie (far back), Reva, Joani (laying way back) Victoria (behind), Fionn, Cinnamon (behind him) and a Maisie butt

There’s a couple I’m not sure whether or not the settled, so they are with him too.

Cinnamon

Then he has a couple that he needs to breed.  He loves his job!

I decided to put Penny with him.  She didn’t have a kid last year, but she looks good after the copper capsules, and if she has two, I’ll just make one a bottle kid.

Penny Lou

I also have him with Flower.  She’s never been able to have a kid.  I think she’s a freemartin.

Flower and Fionn

He’s also with the wethers and the llamas.

These guys all get to go out to the big pasture.

Fionn should enjoy that.

Moving Day

6 Jan

Today is the day I had to move everyone around to make June babies.  It was a bit more challenging this year.

Zeus, Xerxes and Fionn

I have two extra little bucks.

Anubis and Pluto

I have old ladies that are getting extra care.

I had to figure out what to do so that everyone was with a buck or away from a buck.  I also wanted to move Tony Llama into the buck room. It’s a lot better shelter and I want to make sure he has extra feed because he’s still thin, and he’ll have the front pasture which has more for him to eat.  It’s driving me crazy, and he’s the only critter on the farm that I’m truly worried about.

Tony

Moving llamas was the first order of business.  I thought Buster might be difficult, but he was really good for me.

Buster

He is back with the main herd and Maybeline and Odie.  I figure those girls will be able to put him in his place if he starts acting like a stud with them.

Odie

That means Tony is with Xerxes and his girls.  He only has Cookie and Zinnia with him.

Tony, Xerxes, Zinnia, and Cookie (Maggie photobombing in front)

I thought about retiring Cookie, but she is looking good, and she’s had a couple rounds of copper, so I decided we’d let her have kids for one more year.

Cookie

Xerxes might already be done with his work for June babies.

Xerxes and Zinnia

We’ll see if they settle.

Cookie and Xerxes

I  hope so!
