Supervisors and Bosses

16 Jul

My nephew came this morning and mowed the pasture.

Of course, the goats went out to check it out.  They are pretty easy as supervisors go.  They just want to make sure it still tastes good now that it’s cut.

As soon as they went out to inspect my nephew’s work, I decided it was time to clean the twine out of the barn before we put hay in it again.

It’s one of those jobs I always plan to do but never get around to it.  Well, it’s getting hard to get in and out of the door.  It had to be done.

I had no more than started when my bosses showed up.

If only they were as easy as the supervisors the nephew had.  No.  These three demand more hay.

After I left to empty the Ranger, I came back to Odie telling me that she was not going to move.  She was planning on sunning herself right in front of the door.

Oh my.  These three are bossy. And Maybeline had a couple of trainees with her.

I hope they aren’t so bossy.

Surprise!

I was really disappointed that Odie and Maybeline didn’t have crias.  Even more so because I wasn’t going to have a Llenny baby.

I was grateful Aurora didn’t settle since she became so ill.  It wasn’t really a surprise that she didn’t because Ollie (the stud) was young.

Now I have figured out what’s going on with the goats, and I think I’m getting a handle on it.

So when the opportunity arose…

Tony Llama

Meet Tony Llama.  He’s our new stud.

Obviously, he will not be anywhere near Aurora until she’s back to full weight, but I think Odie and Maybeline need to spend some time with him.

Jealous Much?

I am still working really hard to get Aurora back to full weight.  I can actually see results!

“It’s hard work gaining weight.” -Aurora

I am giving her llama/alpaca feed twice each day along with being able to eat from pasture whenever she wants.

I will say that three other llamas are ridiculously jealous of her.  They stand at the gate the entire time she’s eating.  Worse, if I put it on a fence where they can’t reach it, but it’s close to them, they spit at Aurora.  Seriously.

Maybeline, Odie, and Buster

I’m not buying the big brown eyes looking like they are starving.

“Please, please, please, feed me too. I’m starving.” -Buster

I keep telling Aurora to keep eating until she looks like Maybeline.

Hopefully, it will be fairly soon the way she’s been eating.
