Selling Bucks

9 Aug

With the boys getting big, I decided I needed to sell them before I ended up with another January oopsie baby.  I also have some moms who just need to get their kids off of them.

I shut ten boys in the Love Shack.

My nephew came in the morning, and we loaded them up to take them to the sale.

When I shut the boys in, I finally managed to catch Cher and put her up north.

I’ll worry about getting the girls sold after I don’t have to worry about the boys.

I still have four boys out running around with the herd.

Festus, Hera, and Ares

Tiger, of course will get to stay, but he does need to get away from the girls.

I also have Milo who I already have with Xerxes and Freddy.

Hopefully, next week I can get rid of the rest of the boys.

Joy with Seven

Then I will just have the little boys from May and June.  They have a little while before I have to separate them from the girls.

Hot, Hazy Days

3 Jul

We have certainly reached the hot, humid days of summer where my camera fogs up the second I step out the door.

It’s the kind of weather where you can almost hear the corn growing.

Our temperatures are near 90°F (32.22°C), and the dew point is tropical.

It’s the kind of weather that makes me want to stay inside, and even the goats and llamas are feeling it.

Chiffon is really getting a lot nicer now that her sister is gone.

It looks like this trend is going to continue for the next couple of weeks.

This Is Getting Old

15 May

Guess what!  I went out to pasture on Thursday and the goats were out.  Seriously.  This time it was over half the herd.

Luckily, when we put the fence up back there we left a panel at the end in case of an emergency.  Well, this was an emergency.

I opened it and they came back in.  The kids who were not on the same side as their moms were quite happy.

Gidget too.

I couldn’t even find where they got through. You’d think it would be fairly obvious when you have Moose and Casey getting through.

Anyhow, that was a project for the next morning.  I think I’ve got it now.  At least for today.  I’m about ready to quit going out to pasture to check on them.
