Done Kidding for 2017

20 Jun

Vinnie had her babies today!

Here is her first girl, Viera.

Her second is Vanna.

Everyone is doing great!

It’s a relief to be finished.  Now I just have to get them to where all the kids can go out to pasture without getting lost!

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. 23

9 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.

If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week the topics will be: Starts with X, Week’s Favorite, and insect. 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 W:  I’ve had a few W goats on the farm:  Wanda, Wanda, Watson, Wendall, Whitey, Will, Willie, Willie, Wilson, and Winnie.  The only one currently on the farm is Wanda (who was named after her sister Wanda).  Here she is with her daughter Ava.

Week’s Favorite:  My week’s favorite is a no brainer this week.  Tequilla and Margarita finally figured out how to nurse their mom!  Yay!  No more milking and bottle feeding.

Pastel: I was really surprised that I do not have many pastel things around the farm.  I finally settled on my cherry blossom goat’s milk soap.  It’s also one of my favorite fragrances.

Now it’s your turn!

Edited:  Sorry I forgot the linky.  Oops.. I blame kidding.

Caroline’s Adventures in Pasture

8 Jun

Caroline is just a little goat.  She’s really too young to be going out to pasture, but she and her maa, Annie, insist that she goes out to pasture.

It’s easy to lose a goat out there.  The grass is getting tall.  Here’s Myson for a little perspective.  I’m not going to lose him.

It’s hard to find the other goats though.

I’m really looking for a Caroline in a hay field.  I have to say that I am absolutely amazed.  Annie has managed to keep track of her and get her back to the barnyard every time.

I did snuggle with Caroline yesterday, though, and tell her if she ever got lost all she had to do was listen for my voice and answer. I’d come rescue her.  She must have taken me seriously because last night when I went to check, I saw she was with her mom, but I said something to another goat.  Caroline started answering me and came over.  As soon as I picked her up, she snuggled in for a nap.

I think the adventures in pasture had worn her out.

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