End of the Day Chores

28 Jan

After I finish chores, I get a short break until I do the end of the day chores.

That starts with preparing meds for Lily and Harley.

I dissolve meloxicam for Lily in a syringe because she wouldn’t eat it off a cracker with peanut butter.  Harley is thrilled with her peanut butter cracker.


In fact, she would eat my mittens that have a bit of peanut butter on them if I let her (no mittens this time because I can’t take cell phone pictures with mittens on).

Lily might be regretting her choice, but I’m not sure how I could get a cracker past Harley to give it to her now.

The two little girls generally chase me out of the pen.  That’s mostly begging to see if I brought them treats.

Then I go shut the door for the birds.  I just noticed how much of their bedding they’ve destroyed.  I’ll have to get more in here before tomorrow’s horrible cold.

By the way, that is a brand new heated bucket because their old one quit working one evening last week.  Upkeep and replacing things is never-ending on the farm.

After the birds I trek across the barnyard and do one last check of Tony and turn his lights off for the night.

When I finish with all that, I can go in and relax!

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!


Sky doesn’t seem to even notice the snow.


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.


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!
