Long Live the Queen

23 May

You might recall we had several goats challenging Minnie Pearl for her position as herd queen–Maggie, Lily, Cinnamon, Penny.

Lily Osboer

Minnie is now retired in the north paddock, so they can’t pick on her.  She’s really showing her age.

But we finally have a new queen (I think).  I am totally shocked, but our new queen is…Sallie!

I know!  She wasn’t fighting or challenging Minnie, but she has become the quiet leader.

I’m good with this.  It’s good to have a herd queen too.

Long live Queen Sallie!

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items listed at the top of my side bar.

Friday’s Hunt v3.20

19 May

Welcome back to Friday’s Hunt.  I want to thank everyone who joined in last week.  I had a lot of fun visiting everyone who linked up.  It’s very simple.  Anyone can participate.  The link opens at 7pm Central time and will close Sunday at 7pm, so you have plenty of time to enter.  Hopefully, you’ll be inspired to visit some of the other entries.

If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week the topics will be:  Starts with U, Week’s Favorite, and kids.   I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top.  I am crazy busy with teaching and working on the farm right now, but I will make sure to visit all participants.  Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with T: All my goats that have started with T:  T-bone, Tango, Tansy, Tayet, Theodore, Thumper, Tina, Tiny Tim, Tish, Tom, Tommy, Tucker, Tuesday.  I only have one T-goat on the farm right now–Victoria’s boy, T-bone.

T-bone

Week’s Favorite:  I’ve really enjoyed the birds since I got my summer feeders out last weekend.  I’ve missed the feeders being out with yard goats for the last two years.

Food:  I am feeding a variety of foods, but the sunflower seeds seem to be their favorite!

Now it’s your turn!

Friday’s Hunt v3.18

5 May

Welcome back to Friday’s Hunt.  I want to thank everyone who joined in last week.  I had a lot of fun visiting everyone who linked up.  It’s very simple.  Anyone can participate.  The link opens at 7pm Central time and will close Sunday at 7pm, so you have plenty of time to enter.  Hopefully, you’ll be inspired to visit some of the other entries.

If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week the topics will be:  Starts with S, Week’s Favorite, and family.   I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top.  I am crazy busy with teaching and working on the farm right now, but I will make sure to visit all participants.  Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with R: All the goats on my farm that started with R–Rainie, Ralph, Raven, Red, Red, Reddy, Reggie, Reva, Rickie, Ricky, Robbie, Robin, Rocky, Rocky, Roi, Rolly, Ron, Rose, Rosie, Rover, Ruby, Rudy, Ruff, Rufus.  Below is Reva.  I first said she was due in March, but as we got closer, I wasn’t so sure.  I did sort her in with the March moms, but I had already figured she hadn’t gotten bred, so she gets this year off.

Reva

Week’s Favorite:  The weather!  I am so glad to be back to beautiful spring weather.

Window:  Snickers and Rocky were enjoying the window.  Yeah.  My window really is that dirty (paw and nose prints).

What were they looking at?

Sky

Sky found an old basketball.  He was enjoying it.

Now it’s your turn!
