Old Goat’s Home

16 Apr

Minnie Pearl is feeling all of her thirteen years.  It’s hard to go out to pasture all day, so she was staying in the barnyard in the afternoon.  I decided to give her some hay since she was the only goat up here.  The llamas showed up.

Then there were a few sprinkles, so the rest of the goats came back up.  You’ll notice that Minnie is nowhere near her hay.

I’m pretty sure Maybeline is not happy with me taking a picture of her stuffing her face, but that’s what she gets for stealing Minnie’s hay.

So where is Minnie?  I put her in the north paddock.

I was hoping to wait another week or so to let it grow out more (since I just took the bucks off there), but she needs it.

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.

A Little Extra Hay

30 Jan

I still feel bad that Cutie had to be split from her maa when she had her broken leg.  They are back to hanging out together again, but Cutie still has a hard time finding a place to eat.

I decided to help her out a little.

She really enjoys coming into the middle part of the barn while I’m feeding everyone else.

Sometimes, it’s hard to get her to leave though.

Where the Kids Eat

10 Jan

Sometimes it’s hard to make sure all the kids are getting enough to eat.  I have to make sure Helen, Minnie, and Hilda let the three yard kids eat hay.  I’ve taken to putting their hay in a smaller place.

They seem to like it; although, Vanilla seemed to think it was time for some grain the way he came running out.  Can you see Cutie in the window?

She seems to think she is the queen of the dog house.

Luckily, they do all get along, and they all three fit in there at once!  Good thing I had a big dog.
