No Wether Left Behind

12 Sep

The other night I had to go out to pasture to bring the milking girls up (they were horrible last week).

Betty, Casey, Maisie (lying down), Bambi (I can’t tell who is by Bambi from this angle)

Cookie, Litha, Coral (behind) Betty Lou, Maggie

I kept thinking I heard someone calling just over the hill.  I kept trying to see everyone, but finally, I just decided to walk over the hill to make sure I was mistaken.  Well…


Pluto had his head stuck.  It didn’t take much to get him out.  He really shouldn’t have been stuck.  Silly boy.  He quickly headed back to find everyone else.

Finally, he caught up with his sister, Pistol, and her girl Antigone.

Antigone, Pistol, and Pluto

He did give me a proper thank you later.

Now he better keep his head out of the fence!

Our weather is warm.  I got to unplug my heated water tubs.  They are still there (see the cord through the PVC pipe) in case we get cold again, but it warms my heart not to have them plugged in.

The goats have been spending more time out in pasture.  I think it’s even starting to turn green.  That warms my heart.


I love seeing my herd queen out there doing her job!  She might be old, but she still commands the respect of the herd.

That warms my heart too.

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have the items in the top of my side bar.

Today, I’m sharing with Warm Heart Wednesday.
