Friday Afternoon Leftovers

15 Oct

Just a bit of stuff from around the farm:

Antigone looks really good after a year off from having babies.

Mrs. Goose

She’s molting right now.

Hilda and Purl. I think Purl is happy her little brother and sister are shut away.

Maybeline and Aurora

Mr. Peacock

He’s starting to grow his feathers back in.

Odie

My sweet girls–Haley and Pretzel

We are trying to get back to normal after all the repair work from the derecho. (Sky)

Under the Weather

10 Oct

When I got home from work Friday, Rosie seemed to be a little off.  I checked her out, and she seemed a bit thin and had a loose stool, but her eyes were good.  I wormed her and promised I’d give her some copper in the morning.  I went out to pasture to check on her Saturday morning, and about got run over by a couple of speeding llamas.

When I got to the crest of the hill, I saw Rosie was lying by herself–not a good sign.

When I got down to her, I could tell she had a hefty fever, so I decided to take my camera back up and then I was going to come carry her up to the barnyard.  However, the goats decided to follow me.

While I waited for Rosie to get to the barnyard, I prepped some meds for her.  The poor girl got copper, antibiotics, banamine, and a probiotic.

You can see she’s lost some weight.

Then I shut her in the Love Shack.  She can rest and eat and not run around all over pasture.

Poor Rosie isn’t happy, and poor Hilda isn’t happy with both of her kids penned away from her.

Hopefully, Rosie responds to the meds, and she’ll perk up and be back with the herd in a couple of days.

Out In Pasture

6 Oct

I still have the goats out on the back pasture, but it won’t be long before I have to bring them onto only the front half.

They better enjoy it while they can.

The llamas won’t be happy about the change, but they’ll just have to adjust.

Aurora

I think Perdita is happy to be back with the herd and have more room to run and play and bounce.

Haley makes me smile every time I see her out there with the herd.

Life is good.
