Another Treat

15 Jan

This time, my mom brought the last of the pumpkins she had on her front porch.  Since there were just a few, we gave them to the smaller groups of goats.  Clover and Pistol liked it.

Sam didn’t hesitate to help himself.

I also gave some to the girls in the yard.  Helen liked her pumpkin.

But there is nobody that likes pumpkin more than Minnie Pearl.

She was in heaven.  Luckily, I still have a couple more.

I do 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 Treet

9 Jan

My wonderful nephew and his wife brought a Christmas treet for the goats.  I put it in the yard first.

They all enjoyed it.

Although, Vanilla did make me laugh the most.

I loved the pine scented kisses I got from Minnie, but I figured it was too much treet for the few goats in the yard.  I put it in the barnyard for the rest of the herd, and yesterday I had to turn it over so Ava could find the little bit of green left on it.

How they wish they  had another treet!

 

A Year Ago

4 Jan

It was just about a year ago I was at my wits end with Helen.  She was failing with the arthritis.  She was avoiding the herd, so she wasn’t eating well.  She couldn’t lay down to rest.  It was cold.  Then I tried the meds.

Today she’s still going strong despite barely being able to use her one back leg.  She gets up and down, has a good weight, and is still a brat.  I think she’s planning on sticking around for Hilda to make her a grandmaa.

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