Looking Green

14 Apr

My pasture is really starting to look green.

Odie and Maybeline

Everyone is enjoying being out of the barnyard.

Astra and a bunch of kids

The kids are really getting big and enjoy running around and nibbling grass with their moms.

As an aside, you can see that my Quonset hut did not survive the strong winds from this past week.

I love looking out the window and seeing all the goats happily munching.

Although, it’s still weird seeing the bucks where my garden used to be.

I kind of like not having to feed four or five bales of hay everyday too.

The Kind of Weekend

8 Apr

This past weekend was the kind when you could stand outside and watch the grass turn green.

The weather was warm.

We had a bit of rain.  It was enough to make the goats want to lounge in the pasture instead of the barnyard.

It was pretty much perfect.

The goats are really enjoying the green.

And the weekend ended with a quick storm that left a beautiful rainbow behind it.

Truly perfect!

Goats and Fences

7 Apr

There’s a saying that if you throw a glass of water at a fence and water gets through, a goat can get through.  Well, I think there’s some truth to that.  I’ve had my mom separated from the rest of the herd, but things keep happening.

Moms in front; everyone else in back

Hera has figured out how to go back and forth so that she can eat grain with both groups.

She must have shown Aphrodite where she gets through because Aphrodite ended up back on the side where my moms are.  Apparently, she can’t get back through.

At one point, Dolly put herself on the side with the rest of the retired girls.  That was good because she’s been picking on everyone, and I was going to have to figure out how to move her over there away from the moms.

Then one day I got home from work and found Margarita on the wrong side.  At least her Peanut is little enough to follow her anywhere.

The next morning, Daisy had joined the moms.  I don’t know how.

Then Harley and Cupid ended up on the wrong side.

I’m starting to think I should just give up and put everyone back together.  But then Friday when I got home, I found Maggie with the moms, and she wanted to fight with Harley.

Instead, I sorted everyone out again.  My moms still need extra care.
