Another Hoarfrost Morning

21 Jan

I woke this morning to another very white day.  There was fog and hoarfrost.

even the icicles have hoarfrost on them

could barely see the windmill up north

Penelope eating a corn leaf

Frodo looking through a spiky gate

Sky–his jolly ball stands out against all the white

old oak leaves that didn’t fall to the ground

sparrow in the maple tree

leftovers from the rain/ice/snow storm we had–now covered in hoarfrost

I will say it makes for beautiful scenery.

More Tree-ts

17 Jan

My son and his girlfriend came to visit over the weekend.

They delivered more tree-ts!

Look at those excited Popcorn eyes

Two of them.

The goats were very excited.

Moose and Casey

I would love to know what Ostara was thinking as she stared at the ice star.


Some goats were also disappointed that they didn’t get any.

Frodo, Penelope, Trace, and Zinnia

Maybe next year.

More Girls for Frodo

10 Jan

Frodo and Penelope have been getting along quite well. They’re pretty in the north paddock.

However, it was time to put a couple more girls with Frodo to make June babies.

Frodo (notice the tie on the gate)

I had actually tried to put Trace up there when I caught her and gave her copper, but I forgot I had the gate tied shut.  I couldn’t hold her with one hand and untie it with the other hand.


So I decided to do it over the weekend.  I was just Trace and Zinnia I had to move.


It really wasn’t too bad.  I just caught the girls while I was feeding grain.  I had remembered to remove the tie, so it was pretty easy to just put them in.

I’m going to leave Penelope because it will be easier to just have the four of them up there than deal with everyone picking on Penelope because I put her back in with the rest of the herd.

Although, I’m not sure Zinnia was convinced she should stay up there.

They’ll be up there for a little while.  I think they should both come into heat in about two weeks.  Hopefully, Trace will finally settle.
