On the Loose

22 Dec

I turned Antigone and Cupid loose this morning.

Cupid (back) and Antigone

Antigone is an old pro at being out, and she was happy to join her mom and the rest of the herd out in pasture.

Poor Cupid got left in the barnyard alone.

She was a bit loud.

I put them back in the Love Shack tonight to make sure they got enough to eat, and I’ll let them out again in the morning.

The Kids’ Progress

25 Sep

After I decided to put Pluto in with Antigone, I never thought about how cold we suddenly got that night.  He was a bit slow to start in the morning, but I gave him sweet feed, and he seemed to perk up.  I will say, Antigone decided to be a brat and try to butt him.  She did have her own bowl of food, but she wanted to butt him.

Anyhow, I kicked her out of the Love Shack to run around for a bit.  It became obvious how weak she still is, so I put her back up with Anubis and Harley.

Anubis is pretty much completely back to normal.

Although, I don’t spoil him quite as much with Antigone up there.  I have to make sure they both get to eat sweet feed because Harley doesn’t share well.

Antigone is really doing well.  She just needs to keep eating and gaining strength.

Pluto is really making good progress as well.  It just takes time.  He gains strength every day.

Pluto

Bless my mom for coming out a couple of times each day to make sure he’s doing okay and encourage food and fluids.

Someday, I dream that I have nobody that requires extra care.  How awesome would that be!

Goats in the Garden

8 Sep

Lately, I’ve had a hard time with the three kids up north with Harley.

Antigone

A combination of the copper issues and horrible weather has lead to some pretty nasty diarrhea.

It’s a good thing Pepto Bismol tastes yummy.

Pluto

They are improving, so I decided that I’d give them a fresh browsing area.  Since I had already put panels across the yard to keep the dog out of my garden, I decided to let these few goats in to eat it down.

It didn’t take long for them to start eating the weeds and shrubs after I opened the panel.

Anubis

I did pick some tomatoes and okra before I let them in.

I might still get a bit more before they eat it all down.  There’s quite a bit of grass and shrubs along with garden plants.

I’m hoping they start with the stupid morning glories.

There should be enough here to keep them happy for a while.
