On My Walk

29 Aug

On my walk to take pictures for the blog and check Maybeline (still no cria) and the goats,

I get to see lots of other things too.

Sometimes, I even get them to sit still long enough to take a picture.

hawk feather?

Luckily, we’ve had beautiful weather for walking in pasture.

Just Some Leftovers

23 Aug

Well, I’ve made it through the first couple of days back to work.  Here’s some leftovers from the past week.  Penelope is doing better now that she’s had some copper.  She was one of five March kids who got copper when everyone else did.

Why is it I see all these great pictures of butterflies sitting on pretty flowers, and the butterflies here sit on goat poop?

I need to band some little bucks since we’re getting to fall weather.  I really don’t need any oopsie babies next winter/early spring.

Vinnie’s little girl is adorable!  She is still getting one bottle a day, and she really looks good.

Venus

The red-headed woodpecker found something in the tree.

I wonder where s/he was taking it.

This dog is so goofy!

Cookie was enjoying the salt/mineral block.

I am almost finished with making the cheese I need.  Then I need to do some yummy Mozzarella sticks and feta.

I did finish scooping the barn before I went to work.

Caroline

Lots of green beans!

I think I’ve decided to keep Moira.  She’s calm.  I can pet her, and she loves food.  That means she’ll be a good candidate for milking (I hope).  She also reminds me of her grandmaa, Coffee.

The bottle kids are kind of annoying when I go into the north paddock.  I can’t get away from them, and they need to be weaned.

Vulcan and Venus

We finally have had several days with good rains.  That means I had a visitor!

Happy weekend!

Friday’s Hunt v3.10

10 Mar

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 K, Week’s Favorite, and drink.   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 J: All the goats ever on the farm that start with J: Jack, Jack, Jacob, Jake, Jane, Java, Jelly, Jem, Jenny, Jerry, Jetty, Jilly, Joani, Joe, Junior, Justin.  We’ve added some over spring break: Johnny and Jinx.  Here’s Gidget with her two little J boys and her Gypsy girl.

Week’s Favorite:  I had really hoped to announce Blaze’s babies for the week’s favorite because once she has her kids, I get to sleep all night!  As of 5:30 this afternoon, however, no babies.  How can I pick a favorite with all the sweet babies we’ve had this week?  I’ll just share Vixen’s little girl.  She is adorable, and you really couldn’t see her in the picture I shared yesterday.

Birds or wings: I haven’t done much besides kids this week (what was I thinking.  I should have made the prompt kids.), but I did see a hawk flying above my Back Forty when I was out checking on goats.

Now it’s your turn!
