I have integrated the two parts of the goat herd.

I had all my moms and a few others on the front pasture.



I had way fewer goats on the bigger back pasture.


I had to change that.

So I put them all together.

I am still worried about my moms who are run down, but I’ll try and figure out a way to get them some extra feed.

Of course, the ones I milk will be easy.  I just have to say their name near the milk room door, and they’ll come.


After moving to the bigger pasture, I’m pretty sure Harley will really need her meds tonight.


A few of the kids got pretty tired running around.

Of course, the few who got left in the barnyard weren’t too happy about it, but they did manage to sneak through the gate back onto the front pasture to eat with Aurora.

In a couple of days, everyone will have adjusted.


A Homecoming of Sorts

19 Nov

If you’ve been visiting here for a long time, you know I started my goat herd with five Saanen girls.  One of them was Cutie.

She had a daughter named Pam, who was such a spoiled diva that she earned the title of Princess Pam.


In March, 2013, she tried having triplets, but it was not very good outcome.  We lost the first baby and Pam died of a uterine infection.  The other two babies were really weak, and I was happy to send them to my neighbor (I was having lots more weak kids that needed extra care).

Tansy and Tucker

My neighbor had Tansy (renamed Scarlet) for several years before losing her.  Now as she has decided to sell her herd, I’ve brought a Tansy/Scarlet granddaughter back to Eden Hills.  Meet Cupid.


She was born on April 14, 2018 (which makes her three days younger than Antigone, perfect companions to stay in the Love Shack together for a while).

As you can see, she has Nubian bred into her, so I’m hoping she’ll be another good milking doe.  She is about half dairy and half boer.

Pluto, the Llamaslayer

22 Jul

This is Pluto.  He might look cute and sweet and cuddly, but don’t let that innocent look fool you.


He’s really…a llamaslayer!  He’s captured Odie!

Pluto on Odie

Maybe he’s decided to slay her since she was the villain in Antigone’s fairy tale.

“I have killed the llama! The barnyard is safe again.” -Pluto

Whatever the reason, he’s slain the evil llama.

Oops.  I guess she was just scratching her neck.
