Looking for the Good

25 Feb

With the crappy weather and all that it brings, I really need to focus on the good.  And there are lots of good things going on.  Athena is doing well.

Snickers is still doing well.

Sky doesn’t care about snow or weather.  He’s just always happy.  I don’t know how I managed to get such a good boy.

Harley doesn’t have a clue that she’s not perfectly healed.  She’s still pretty certain she can do anything she wants, and that seems to be working for her.

Look at that angelic face.  That’s enough to make anyone smile.

Antigone

Hilda has decided to be nice again.  That’s always good.

Even Bambi has her moments of letting me pet her.  Although, she doesn’t look too happy about it.

Tony’s appetite is back to normal.  He can’t get enough to eat now.  He’s still thin, but I’m pretty sure he’s going to make a full recovery now.  That is a huge relief.

I’m working on LilyAnn.  Bribing her with peanuts helps a lot.

Peanuts always draw a big crowd.

I think I need more peanuts.

While I’m Shoveling

18 Feb

I made sure to get out early yesterday and shovel before the goats tromped all through the snow packing it down.  So what were they doing while I was busy trying to make their life easy?

Maisie and Moose

Most of them are just lying around being lazy.

Clover

Or using future grandkids as a pillow.

Reva and Litha

Some of them just stand around.

Cutie

Poor Sidney was stuck standing in the snow.  I am NOT shoveling that side.  I can feed them where I cleaned off, and I’m not doing any more.

Sidney

Maggie and Margarita were watching me work (Myson was too, but I was too busy working to take his picture.  After I quit shoveling, there was no entertainment.)

It doesn’t take long for them to come out and explore once I’ve cleaned a place for them.

Hilda (Annie in back snacking on the hay I uncovered)

Yes, Hilda.  I did shovel that path just for you.

Holy Hormones!

11 Oct

I will be glad when I get a bunch of my girls bred for spring break babies.  The hormones are bit crazy with all these girls coming into heat.

Litha, Stormy and Hilda

They are literally fighting over the bucks.

Xerxes and Zeus watching Litha and Stormy fight.

Crazy goats.  They are twins.  They are ten.  They are not getting a buck.  They are retired.  At least Hilda is smart enough to stay out of the fight.

I can’t get Maybeline and Odie to look at Tony and these old, retired ladies are fighting over the bucks.  Figures.
