Checking Pasture

13 Jul

I mentioned that we are really dry.  The weatherman has actually started using the d word–drought.  I don’t think we’re quite to that point here, but it’s really dry.  The rain we got last night will help, but there’s not another chance of rain in the next seven days.

My nephew is planning on mowing part of the bottom to get me my hay for winter.  Luckily, I don’t need a lot.

I’ve barely started on what we baled last year; although, I’ve had to start feeding some to my old ladies because their little paddock is running out of green stuff other than creeping Charlie.

Luckily, I have way more pasture than I need for my goats and llamas.

You could lose a little kid out there.  Actually, they are noisy enough that they will yell for the herd and not get lost now.

There’s still a lot of grass out there.

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

This and That Around the Farm

Just some scenes from around the farm.  Birdsfoot trefoil growing in the pasture.

We had visitors!  Maybeline is an awesome guest greeter.

My mallow.  I was glad to see I had any after two years of yard goats.

Vanna is adorable!

It’s a miniature orange tree!

Friday’s Hunt v3.25

23 Jun

Welcome back to Friday’s Hunt. I want to thank everyone who joined in last week. I had a lot of fun visiting everyone who linked up. It’s very simple. Anyone can participate. The link opens at 7pm Central time and will close Sunday at 7pm, so you have plenty of time to enter. Hopefully, you’ll be inspired to visit some of the other entries.

If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week the topics will be: Starts with Z, Week’s Favorite, and dessert. I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. I am crazy busy with working on the farm right now, but I will make sure to visit all participants. Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with Y:  I’ve only ever had one goat with a Y name on the farm.  That’s Yolanda!  Luckily, she was an excellent model.

Week’s Favorite:  So many choices!  I have to say, I’ve really enjoyed all the birds out in pasture.  That’s a benefit to all the time I spend tracking kids out there.

Splash:  The geese were enjoying their pool when we were so hot.  Sadly, my hope that the llady llamas spending a lot more time in the barnyard would keep them safe was not the case.  I lost my African gander.  They are back to being shut in with the chickens and peacocks.  I am herding them into the building at night to keep them safe from raccoons.  I am seriously not liking all the predators.  I had geese without problems for sixteen years, and it breaks my heart to have them killed like this unless they are locked in that small space.

Before I turn it over to you, I will definitely do another round.  I’ve been coming up with items.  I did like Claire’s suggestion of taking out the “week’s favorite” for another prompt.  Of course, if you choose to do only one prompt or two and then give me your favorite, I’ll still be happy.  Blogging is supposed to be fun, not a lot of silly rules.  Thanks to all who continue to join in the fun!

Now it’s Your Turn!
