Random Goat Notes

1 Dec

I can’t believe how big Moose is anymore.  He’s still a pain with trying to open my chicken pen gate.


Myson is my sweetie.


Harley really has bonded with the boys.  I hate that I’m going to have to separate them very soon (an oopsie baby would kill her).

Pluto is also getting better all the time.  He’s round and fuzzy, and he makes me smile and laugh.


I thought the lineup of spotted girls was kind of cute.  Although, Hera does kind of stand out as the odd one.

It’s also three generations (Blaze, Gidget, and Hera) with Blaze’s twin sister for good measure.


Llama Probllamas

11 Nov

I seem to be short space for getting all the llamas adjusted and how I want them.

Maybeline and Odie

I am happy to say Aurora seems to be handling the cold quite well.  I think she’s even picked up weight since the ISU vets were here to check her out.


Although when our high temperature was only about 25*F ( -3.89*C) on Saturday, she did decide that would be a good day to get some llama feed. And she didn’t even spit on me!

Buster is doing well.


They are still with the bucks, and I have to say, Zeus has really bonded with them.  I’ve even seen Buster and Zeus playing together.  Since the llamas are doing well, and are Zeus’s only friends, I hate to switch that up.

Edited to add this picture because I was trying to get a better one, and forgot I hadn’t put this one in.

I still had Tony, Maybeline and Odie together with the main goat herd.  I get nervous with Odie and the goats when we get to the point that I’m feeding grain because she does not have patience with the goats and would really like to stomp them into the ground so she can eat grain undisturbed.

I just don’t have a way to put them all someplace without goats.  Besides, they are supposed to be my coyote deterrents, so I like have llamas in all the pastures with goats.


Then there’s Tony.  He hasn’t lost weight, but I’m not sure he’s gained much either.


I finally decided to move him up with Harley and the boys.

There’s not much pasture left to eat, but they have hay, and it gets him away from the girls.  They are not nice to him, and some studs do lose weight when they are with girls.  He isn’t with them, but he was still staring at them.

Hopefully, this will help him put on a little winter fat.

A Perfect Day

29 Oct

Saturday was such a perfect day that I spent most of it working outside.  I finally got to move the pile of brush from where we took out the old yard fence.

I moved it to the garden to be burned.  Which means I had to shut Harley and the boys out of there.

I had to bring the Ranger in for one very large root and tree.  Sky got his first Ranger ride.  I’m not sure that was smart, but I’m not sure which was more dangerous–having him beside me in the Ranger or running around like a lunatic while I was trying to drive.  By the way, I LOVE my new fence!


I also got the tomato cages all removed from the garden and hauled to the north shed.  That seemed to make sense since I want to put my garden up there next year.


I also did some other yard work and hauled a bunch of the mess from the old fence to the recycling dumpster.  If only I had another solid week of this perfect weather and I got to stay home for it, I might get caught up a little bit.
