In the Love Shack

8 Jan

I moved Pluto and Anubis to the Love Shack with Hera and Aprhodite.

Pluto, Aphrodite, Hera, and Anubis (Maisie in back)

Hera was the first to be in there with the boys, and she was fine with them; although, she was horrible for me to catch and put in there.

Hera

Honestly, she’s never forgiven me for the horn apparatus.  I’m hoping being in a small space with two sweet boys will help Hera settle down and be friendly again.

Anubis and Pluto

After I added Aphrodite, things got wild.  Aphrodite was not acting like a love goddess.  I finally had to remove her so she didn’t hurt the little bucks.

Aphrodite

I put her in with Zeus and his other girls.

Zeus

He can handle her a lot better!

Improving

27 Nov

Antigone is improving.  She’s still on antibiotics, so the poor girl doesn’t want to let me get close to her.

Antigone

It doesn’t help that I’m also picking the hay dried to her head off.  I was spraying it with a wound spray, but I’m not going to spray her when it’s this cold out.  Hopefully, the antibiotics will be enough to finish healing her up.

She is still in the Love Shack with Cupid.

Did you notice she has a mythology name–she even arrived with it.  That tells me it was fate that brought her back to my farm.

Cupid

Cupid is still shy.  Of course, it doesn’t help that Antigone screams every time I catch her to give her a shot.

Both of these little girls can really put the food away.  I can’t believe how much they eat.

That might be why Cupid is getting so round.  Of course, we like our fluffy goats.

Penned!

Before today’s post:  If you saw the news of Iowa’s tornado outbreak yesterday, I just want to share that, while Marshalltown is where I teach, none of the severe weather impacted the farm here.  All of the animals and I are safe.

I have Harley and her four three and a spare up north yet.  And you’ll never see good pictures of those four kids because they swarm me looking for a bottle every time I come in there.  It’s starting to be a challenge to feed the four of them at the same time.

Eve, Enkidu, Horus, Gilgamesh and Harley

I finally caught Antigone and threw her up there with Harley too.  I swear that girl is going to give me gray hair.

Antigone

She gets in with the bucks, and then she can’t get out, but she still won’t let me touch her after the whole horn incident.  Now she’s weaned and not happy, and Pistol isn’t happy either, but I can’t catch the little snot.  She’s making it hard for me to be able to keep her.  I really want not to have goats that I can’t work with.

Antigone and Pistol

I also have Gidget shut in the Love Shack because she must have stepped on something.  Anyhow, she had a cut on her foot and was hobbling on three feet.

Gidget

She also had two kids as big as her still trying to nurse.  They are not happy to be getting weaned.

Gidget, Zeus and Hera (without her horn apparatus)

It was really a sympathy lock up.

Although she’s not happy either.  She looks so weird in the picture because she stuck her head through the fence and then decided to pee.  I don’t get it.  And she was not stuck.  She did remove her own head from the panel.

Luckily, her foot is doing better.  I think she’ll get to be released from the Love Shack tomorrow.
