Back to Normal

24 Jul

Now that the fence is finished, we are pretty much back to normal here.

The new fence

I moved the bucks (Xerxes, Freddie and Milo) back to the front pasture.

Freddie, Milo and Xerxes

I will replace some of the panels here with the old, heavier ones we removed from the old fence.


I’ll keep adding more bucks as I wean them.

Quatro is almost as big as his maa, Mary.

I really need to work on catching some of these wild boys to wean.


I moved my two girls from the Love Shack.  Before I moved them, I did catch them and give them copper.

Fannie and Six

They are much happier with a bigger space and green stuff to munch on.

I’m going to try to move Penny up with them because her arthritis is increasingly bothering her.


The little kids who had never been out to pasture before are figuring it out.

Stitch and Purl are experts; Archie is new.


Archie and Edith forgotten in the barnyard

Edith keeps getting left in the barnyard, but Antigone is a good mom.  She comes up and feeds her and then Edith can’t seem to figure out how to follow her back out to pasture.

Everyone else is back on the front have of the Back Forty.

Life is good!

Drama in the Barnyard

16 Jul

Usually  things are pretty mellow in the barnyard.

Goats just lounge around.  Well, a monster came yesterday.

the little farm hand

The little farm hand was apparently quite scary to the goats.

We mostly got to see tails as they ran away.

I think Quatro (and Onyx) was about the only one to stand still and let the little farm hand pet him.
