In About a Month

2 Jan

I can’t believe I’m talking about kidding season already.  Of course, we are starting much sooner than I would like thanks to Fionn.  We have four girls that are due February 1st.

Dolly.  She’s supposed to have at least one girl in there.  I really, really, really want another Dolly daughter.  She’s only ever had three, and I kept two of them.

Penny.  I hope she has only one.  I was actually thinking of retiring her after she couldn’t raise her twins last year.  I guess if she has two, one will have to be a bottle kid.

Maisie.  Those are still her kids from last year with her.  I really need to sell my June babies, but weather and holidays have interfered.  Hopefully, they will get sold in the next couple of weeks.

Bonnie.  She’s ready.  She didn’t have kids last year, so I guess it’s okay for her to be early this year.

I just hope the weather cooperates.

If you want to join me for Friday’s Hunt this week, I have the items listed at the top of my sidebar.

Kidding and Waiting

4 Jun

We’ve had more kids since Harley had her triplets on Tuesday.  Thursday, Sugar had one buck.  He’s doing quite well.

That’s it.  Vinnie is over due by one day.  Sallie is three days past her due date.



And I still don’t know when Vixen and Joani are due, so I’m exceedingly sleep deprived from all the night time checks.  Really.

If you want to join Friday’s Hunt, you still have time.  The items for this week are at the top of my side bar.

Today, I’m sharing with SOOC Sunday (all images), Camera Critters and Saturday’s Critters.

Fence and Sky

10 Mar

We had a gorgeous sky last weekend.  I was just enjoying it, when I noticed something odd.

It was like a sundog, but the weather was too warm for that.  There hadn’t been any rain, so I have no idea what that little colorful blotch was.

I stayed out in pasture with the goats until the sun began setting, and we all came back up to the barnyard.

Can’t forget the llama!  Here comes Llenny!


Finally, it’s back to the barnyard.

Everyone settles in for the night.  Okay, the picture was actually from earlier in the day, but I thought it was too cute not to share.

They do really come up and settle in for the evening.

I do hope you’ll come back tomorrow to join me in Friday’s Hunt.  The items for this week are at the top of my sidebar.
