Excessive Heat

20 Jul

We are under an excessive heat advisory.  It’s pretty miserable.

Most everyone is handling the heat okay, even if it is uncomfortable.

I broke down and gave the geese a pool in the chicken pen.  It makes a mess, but they really need it right now.

Chinese Goose

The goats are lounging in the shade.

There’s not a lot of water left in the ditch in the Back Forty.

By the time they come back up from pasture, the goats are hot.  Cinnamon has not been handling the heat well.  Neither has Maggie and Harley.

I make sure we have plenty of water in the barnyard.  I’ve even hosed off a couple of the llamas.

Estarr

I wish Odie would let me hose her off.  She’s the one who is not tolerating the heat at all.  I’m worried about her.

Odie

Estarr has it all figured out.

Sky seems to have the best solution though.

He is enjoying the air conditioning in the house.

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items in my side bar.

Random Stuff

5 Jun

I let the geese out when I got the door fixed to shut the chickens in the coop at night.  They are staying close to the barnyard, but they are all still here.  They are really enjoying the pool since we’ve been really hot and humid the last few days.

African Goose

Bob has been lazy and napping on the patio most of the time.

Sky has decided that air conditioning is really pretty awesome.

He could get used to it.

Who’s Sitting?

4 May

I only have two girly gooses left.  They’ve laid a lot of eggs.

Now the African goose is sitting on the nest.

I’m a little worried about how many they might hatch.

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