Kids Will Be Kids

15 Jul

The barnyard seems awfully empty and quiet with the February/March kids leaving the farm.

That’s a good thing.  The June kids are enjoying having the whole barnyard as their playground.


I’m not so sure Farina is pleased to be a part of the playground.

Jumbo and Cookie’s boys were certainly having fun though.

Even with all that space, Biscuit still manages to find a way to need rescued.  He got in with the bucks and Ollie and couldn’t figure out how to get back on the right side.  His brother, Butter, didn’t seem to care to much.  I was nice and helped him figure out how to get back with the kids.

Silly boy!

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.

Checking Pasture

13 Jul

I mentioned that we are really dry.  The weatherman has actually started using the d word–drought.  I don’t think we’re quite to that point here, but it’s really dry.  The rain we got last night will help, but there’s not another chance of rain in the next seven days.

My nephew is planning on mowing part of the bottom to get me my hay for winter.  Luckily, I don’t need a lot.

I’ve barely started on what we baled last year; although, I’ve had to start feeding some to my old ladies because their little paddock is running out of green stuff other than creeping Charlie.


Luckily, I have way more pasture than I need for my goats and llamas.

You could lose a little kid out there.  Actually, they are noisy enough that they will yell for the herd and not get lost now.


There’s still a lot of grass out there.

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 v3.26

30 Jun

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.

We are starting round four!  It’s hard to believe.  I did make a slight change.  It will still go through the alphabet for the first prompt, but there are two other prompts that will change each week.  As always, you can choose to do one or all.  If you enjoy the week’s favorite, by all means continue to add that.  If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week the topics will be: Starts with A, sunset, and inside. I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. I am crazy busy with 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 Z:  I have had a handful of “Z” goats–Zach, Zin, Zinnia, Zoe, Zoe, and Zorro.  Haley’s twins this year are Zinnia and Zorro.  I do plan on keeping Zinnia since she is such a beautiful Sam girl, and she is really becoming quite friendly, and she’s joined my MGiT Program.


Week’s Favorite:  Obviously the five new llamas are my favorites.  I am really enjoying getting to know them.


Dessert:  I’ve shared this recipe before (in 2012), so today, I’ll just tease you with an image of my peach pie cake.  Maybe we should make dessert a permanent prompt, so I always have an excuse for dessert.  Heck. I don’t need an excuse.

Now it’s your turn!
