Just Some Pictures

24 Apr

I managed to take a whole bunch of pictures when I was moving everyone around, so I thought I’d just share some more.

I love just haning out with the animals when the weather is nice like it was this past weekend.

Random Pictures from the Week

13 Apr

Clover’s bottle jaw is doing better.  Same with Bonnie. That makes me happy.  I keep trying to baby them through.

The boys are enjoying the nice weather.  They will be happy when they get their buck pen and front pasture back.

Xerxes and Fionn

Maisie and Moose hanging together in the pasture.

Bambi in pasture.

I’m really happy to be back to summer in the barnyard (well, mostly kind of).  The water buckets are out for the kids now.

Tinkerbell, Peter Pan, and maa Joani

Sacagewea is filling up that food pan.  Won’t be long before she doesn’t fit.

Another look at last weekend’s rainbow.

Here’s to another good weekend!

Too Many Bucks

18 Mar

I currently have five bucks on the farm.

front to back: Zeus, Xerxes, and Fionn

Dolly’s boys have names! Pluto and Anubis

Oops.  I have four bucks on the farm.  Pluto visited the vet and he is now officially the latest wether to be here for the rest of his life.  How could I not do that?  Look at that sweet face.  Okay, he had just been banded and wasn’t feeling the best for this picture, but he is just the sweetest boy!

Pluto

Anubis hopefully bred Hera and I’ll have that baby to help me make the perfect kid.  Once I see what she gives me, I’ll sell Anubis.

Anubis

I kept Zeus to breed a few girls that were too closely related to breed to Xerxes or Fionn.  I might breed with him for another year, or I might try to replace him with a completely unrelated buck this summer.  We’ll just see how things go.

Zeus

I did notice Fionn was starting to walk pretty rough when I moved them back up north.  He’s getting old for a buck.  He’s now eight years old.  He will stay here for the rest of his life, but he’s definitely showing his age.  I’m not sure how much longer he’ll be able to do his job.

Fionn

Xerxes will probably be taking over the position of my main breeding buck soon.

Xerxes

He’s certainly a handsome fellow.
