Another Weekend Project

11 Mar

I had two goals for the first weekend of spring break:  building a fence to prepare for kidding and cleaning out the north stall of the garage.

I am so tired of my garage being a barn.  Even though I’m cleaning out half of it, the other half is still barn because we have rain in the forecast for this week of kidding.  I might need it.  Anyhow, I got my wheelbarrow out and started scooping while everyone was in pasture so I could leave my big red gate open.


I kid you not, I had only taken one load to the compost pile when the llamas came up from pasture.

Of course, they thought they had to check it out.  That meant opening and closing the gate every time I went through it both directions.

Then the goats came up, and my path to the compost pile filled up with obstacles.

Did I mention the wheel on my wheelbarrow is flat and I need to go to town before I can fix it?  Despite all the drama, I did manage to get the job done over the weekend!

Now I can put my car in there again.

I Should Know Better

26 Jan

You’d think after all these years with goats I’d know better than to say everyone is getting along.  I came home from work on Friday to find Wanda with a funny gait.

Wanda (sorry for the crappy cell phone picture)

I’m pretty sure she got hit and injured her back.  Caroline has been off and on horrible to her, and I thought they had finally settled down, but I guess I was wrong.


I moved Wanda to the garage.  (Antigone is responsible for the mess.)

She’s getting meds for the inflammation and pain.  You can see she still hasn’t grown back much hair, which is why I had her in the greenhouse.  It’s warmer.

She seems to be resting comfortably in the garage, and nobody is messing with her.

Hopefully, she’ll recover.

The King of His World

22 Jan

Uno is just the king of his little world in the garage.

He’s checking out the new goats that come in to stay warm.

Moira was the latest, but I’m hoping to kick them out tonight.


Hopefully, Tony doesn’t mind a kid in his hay.

Maisie always keeps an eye on him (even when she’s eating).


But he just bounces and does what he wants.  You can see a video here. https://www.facebook.com/plugins/video.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fedenhills.myson%2Fvideos%2F176338710279381%2F&show_text=0&width=560

Yep, King Uno.
