Good-byes

8 Aug

The last of my original Saanen girls, Minnie Pearl, joined her sisters today.

I miss you all.

Minnie, Millie, Meg, Maddie, Cutie

I also lost Kizzy today.  She was a beautiful Valentine’s Day baby, born when it was -6*F (-21.1*C).

She is the one who gave me all the beautiful spots.

I miss you all.  Every day.

Bad Boys, Bad Boys,

9 Jul

Whatcha gonna do?  I’m selling them!  It’s time for my February and March boys to leave the farm.

Andy and Ghost

They are big and bad.  They are fighting.  I was a bit worried when I saw Spot with blood on his face, until I realized it not his.

Then I found whose blood it was.  Rudy…

Norm injured his stifle; although not near as badly as Caroline.  Like we needed another injury.

Norm and Cinnamon

Even worse, we had a cold snap a couple weeks ago that seems to have brought my girls into heat.

Andy and Zinnia

That means I’m going to have to give a lot of girls shots to make sure I don’t have really young girls and really old girls and any other girl having kids in November.

Hercules and Kizzy

I had to lock Kizzy in with Minnie and Helen because she had four boys chasing her relentlessly.

Stinking bucks!

Luckily, my neighbor came and hauled them to the sale barn for me.

Nineteen Feb./Mar. kids

While they were going, I sent all my Feb. and March babies that I’m not keeping (or have potential homes for).

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

Friday’s Hunt v3.11

17 Mar

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 L, Week’s Favorite, and antique.   I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top.  I am crazy busy with teaching and 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 K:  All of the K goats I’ve had on the farm–Katie, Katie, Ken, Kenny, Kent, Kimmy, Kip, Kip, Kizzy, and Kristoff.  Of all those goats, Kizzy is the only one we still have on the farm.  I can’t believe it, but she turned nine last month.

Kizzy Kay Street

Week’s Favorite:  I haven’t had many opportunities to take snowy pictures this winter, so I thought I’d take advantage of the snow.  It turns out that I like my flowers with just a bit of snow the best.

Drink:  These two make everything a little bit crazy, difficult, dangerous, wild…take your pick.  Even getting a drink becomes a circus act.

Sky and Rocky

Finally, he can get his drink.

Now it’s your turn!
