Goofy Goats

3 Jul

I already shared that the kids enjoyed lounging in the old bird pens.

Well, when I mixed everyone together, some of the other goats decided to try it out too.  You can’t fit near as many of those March kids in there.

And it was almost overflowing when 2TC decided to try it.

Silly goats.

They do make me laugh.

And We’re Off

30 Jun

If all went as planned, Mom and I left for Indianapolis to spend the night with my nephew.  This is the first of my pre-scheduled posts.

Trace is not looking like she’ll give me a July baby.

I decided I would split the top two responses to my survey.  Including my FB responses, it was pretty evenly split between posting farm content (with vacation stuff added in if I got time) and nothing because I’m on vacation.

I have several posts prescheduled with farm content.  I’ll try to at least give you an update on where I’m at on those days I don’t have something scheduled.  But, I might not get it done.

Hopefully, you’ll enjoy the farm posts, and I know I can’t get enough of talking about genealogy and history and cemeteries.  Hopefully, you won’t find any of those posts too bad.

If I know myself, I’ll already be missing my critters and worried about them.  But I have left everyone in capable hands.

The Rainbow After the Rain

27 Jun

I was a bit irritated with Sidney again because she left her kids in pasture again (you’ll read more about that when I’m on vacation).

I had already had to haul her kids up the day before.

And the rain was coming.

I looked in pasture as long as I could, but I admit I ran for the barn with the rest of the herd.  Maybe I can use having my camera as an excuse.

Anyhow, it was a brief shower, and after the rain stopped I caught Sidney and put a collar and leash on her and drug her out to pasture telling her to find her kids.  She screamed at the top of her lungs and eventually, we found them.  They were dripping wet, but I brought them back to the barnyard.

Crystal and Frosty

Then she turned right around and took them out on top of the hill again.

I might have threatened her if she left her kids in pasture again.

Frosty

While I was standing there with her, I noticed a little rainbow.

Hopefully, that’s a sign that she’s done with all of this foolishness.
