Barnyard Scenes

19 Jan

Just some extra pictures from this past weekend because the camera doesn’t like our current weather.

It’s almost a Wordless Wednesday post.

That Leaves Maisie

16 Jan

That leaves Maisie with poor Pistol and Antigone.

Pistol and Antigone

Maisie might have accepted Tony and let her kid snuggle next to a llama. Yeah, that’s where I usually find the kid.

Maisie, Uno, and Tony

Or Uno likes to use Tony as a jungle gym.

But that doesn’t mean Maisie isn’t going to chase the other goats away from her precious baby.

They were going to step into my half of the garage. And they are both my half.  No way!

She really needs to chill, but she’s not going to.  I walked in once to find that Pistol and Antigone were trying to hide from her.  Of course, Antigone noticed the pan of llama food once she was up there. Yes, she has one foot on the bag of potting soil, one foot on the lawn mower handle, one foot on the panel, and one foot on the llama food pan.

Antigone and Pistol

I even tried putting the coat on Uno and putting them in the buck room, but Uno was shivering right away.  I’d still have problems with Maisie picking on Hilda, but I’d also have to worry about Xerxes picking on the kid.  I decided to close my panel and just shut her in with the llama.  If her kid couldn’t get through, maybe she’d stay with him.

That didn’t work.  I added more junk along the panels (to the point I can’t get through). Before.

Yes, Maisie is glaring at Antigone trying to figure out how to kill her while I’m standing there to protect her.

After

It worked.  For about two days.  Then yesterday Maisie (and Uno) were on the wrong side again.  Seriously, Pistol and Antigone just want to be able to take a nap without the fear of being killed by Maisie.

I think they had about five minutes of peace that first full day.

Pistol

You’d think it wouldn’t be too much to ask, but Maisie just can’t refrain from killing someone.  She’d be this problem anywhere I put her.  She’s lucky she’s a good mom and I like her kid.

Mostly Getting Along

15 Jan

After moving everyone around over the weekend, everyone seems to be adjusting for the most part.  Of course, Joani and Fionn are fine together.

Fionn and Joani

Xerxes and Hilda get along.

Xerxes and Hilda staring out to pasture

Although, Hilda would still prefer to be back out in pasture with the rest of the herd.

Hilda “Please let me out???”

Even the two bucks and the girls with them seem to have mostly adjusted.

Aphrodite in front; Caroline, Athena, and Zeus

Zues does still pick on Anubis sometimes, but it isn’t too horribly serious, and Athena escaped once, but I got her put back.

Anubis and Athena

The old laides I was worried about are doing okay.  It didn’t take long for Maggie, Harley and Cookie to figure it out.

Margarita, Harley, Maggie, Chiffon, and Marge (Cookie is inside behind Harley)

Although, Marge did let herself out of the Love Shack.

That leaves Maisie with poor Pistol and Antigone. (To be continued…)
