Really Winter

17 Jan

We seem to have really settled into winter now.  The snow from last weekend is still here, and we’ve added a bit more since then.

Clover

Penny and Bonnie seem to have settled back into the herd pretty easily.  That’s good.

Even though the goats were going out to pasture, they had to work hard to get to the grass.

At least they were going out and wearing off some energy so they aren’t so cranky with each other.  That ended sometime early in the week.

That also means they are getting full hay.

Stormy

The llamas appreciate it too. It makes a lot more chores for me, but it keeps everyone fat and sassy.

And today, it’s another big winter storm.

It Works

15 Dec

I am so happy to say that I looked out the window and saw Tony hanging outside when it was cold and windy.  That means his coat works!

Tony

He nibbled and hung out and then he turned to stare out at pasture for a couple minutes before going back in the Love Shack.

Of course, he had to stare at the girls before he went back in.

Maybeline and Odie

Silly llamas.  Evil hormones.

Walking In the Pasture

14 Oct

I decided I had to go for a walk after being sick most of last week.  Even though we were under a high wind warning and only made it to around 50°F for a high temp, I grabbed my camera and went out.

Actually, it wasn’t too bad on the bottom because the hills do help shelter us from the wind.

I also closed the gates for the winter.  They have to stay on the front half of the Back Forty now.  Hopefully, that will prevent any losses to coyotes.

I also checked and saw that there’s not a lot of clover on the bottom, so I’m going to leave the wethers on the pasture with everyone else.  Hopefully, I don’t regret that later.

Overall, it was a nice walk.
