Snowy Saturday

12 Jan

We haven’t had much snow this winter.  What we have had has quickly melted away.  It started snowing overnight, and we’re actually getting some accumulation.

It’s pretty!

The geese couldn’t care less.  I swear they have rubber feet.

Although, it’s a bit more difficult to make sure all the goats gets in when I have them divided into breeding groups.

Luckily all but one of the groups get along quite well.

Zinnia, Xerxes, and Cookie

Another good thing is that we are not horribly cold with this snow.

I only have to worry about my “not getting anywhere near a buck” group.

all because she didn’t want to walk past Stormy.

Harley is just thrilled to be alive and have company and she’s just happy.  She doesn’t even care about the snow.

Lily and Dolly have claimed the north lean-to.

Astra and Cupid are the two biggest issues.

Cupid

Astra chases Cupid, and she’s also having a hard time getting to find a place for herself.

I have carried Cupid into the building at least twice.

Finally, I showed her she could hide behind the tarp.  That might help.

I’m glad the weather is supposed to be better for the next week.  Then it won’t be long until I can undo my breeding groups.

In the Love Shack

8 Jan

I moved Pluto and Anubis to the Love Shack with Hera and Aprhodite.

Pluto, Aphrodite, Hera, and Anubis (Maisie in back)

Hera was the first to be in there with the boys, and she was fine with them; although, she was horrible for me to catch and put in there.

Hera

Honestly, she’s never forgiven me for the horn apparatus.  I’m hoping being in a small space with two sweet boys will help Hera settle down and be friendly again.

Anubis and Pluto

After I added Aphrodite, things got wild.  Aphrodite was not acting like a love goddess.  I finally had to remove her so she didn’t hurt the little bucks.

Aphrodite

I put her in with Zeus and his other girls.

Zeus

He can handle her a lot better!

Treats!

17 Dec

Since the weather was nice this past weekend, I spent some time giving the goats treats.

Antigone

Antigone took hers, but Cupid would not take one from me;

although, she did pick up one that Antigone dropped.  I’ll keep working on her.

Cupid

I’m always popular when I have peanuts!

I’m glad Margarita likes peanuts.  It’s much easier than having to push a copper capsule down her.

Margarita

Hera is still not about to trust me enough to come take one from me, but I can pet her now–as long as she doesn’t notice me because she’s busy eating her corn.

Hera

Cookie got hers.

Cookie

She liked it so much, she ate her brother, Casey’s, before he could take his from me.

Greedy goats!
