A Few Leftovers

5 Dec

I’m getting desperate to do blog posts this week with the lack of opportunities to take pictures, but luckily I have a few leftovers.  This is a three-generation picture:  Gidget, Hera, and Blaze.

Cupid is actually deciding to be nice to me.

Especially if she thinks she’ll get a bite of sweet feed.

Venus, Chiffon, Cupid, and Marge

Annie was using the broken board to scratch her nose.

Reva sporting her silver shoe and making me feel guilty.

Here’s Margarita and Maggie.  I know I’ve shared a similar photo, but these two are just so pretty.

I was wrong about Caroline being in heat.  She just came back into heat last weekend, so she’s not going to have an oopsie baby during second spring break.

Caroline

I’m not sure if that is good or bad.  If I’m having a second spring break, I guess I’d rather have a bunch because the kids and moms do better when they are born earlier.

Bad Weather

29 Nov

We’re having bad weather caused by the same system that’s been moving across the entire country–wind, cold, rain, and snow.  It’s not the kind of weather I wanted for my Thanksgiving break because it’s impossible to do much outside.  Luckily, the goats and llamas are still going out to pasture to eat, so I’m not feeding hay.  That’s good because I hate feeding hay in mud.

When they’re not out eating, they are mostly standing around in the barn.

It’s too muddy for us to get the equipment in to clean out the back part of the barn and get it bedded down.  Heck, they’re still trying to finish getting the corn out of the fields.  The goats still stand around back there to stay out of the wind and rain.

They also just stand around in food pans,

Antigone

which makes them a muddy mess when I want to try to feed the goats.

Hilda, Gidget (Blaze behind), Hera and a Wanda butt

Or they try to find little bumps of land that might be better drained and less muddy.

It’s not fun to have such a muddy barnyard this time of year.

And we’re expecting more rain and snow right up until Monday when I go back to work.

Just Some Stuff

Just a few pics from around the farm today.

The short days and cold weather make blogging a challenge.  I’m not ready for it to seem like winter.
