Good-byes

8 Aug

The last of my original Saanen girls, Minnie Pearl, joined her sisters today.

I miss you all.

I also lost Kizzy today.  She was a beautiful Valentine’s Day baby, born when it was -6*F (-21.1*C).

She is the one who gave me all the beautiful spots.

Three Generations: Blaze, Gidget, and Kizzy

I miss you all.  Every day.

Old Goat’s Home

16 Apr

Minnie Pearl is feeling all of her thirteen years.  It’s hard to go out to pasture all day, so she was staying in the barnyard in the afternoon.  I decided to give her some hay since she was the only goat up here.  The llamas showed up.

Then there were a few sprinkles, so the rest of the goats came back up.  You’ll notice that Minnie is nowhere near her hay.

I’m pretty sure Maybeline is not happy with me taking a picture of her stuffing her face, but that’s what she gets for stealing Minnie’s hay.

So where is Minnie?  I put her in the north paddock.

I was hoping to wait another week or so to let it grow out more (since I just took the bucks off there), but she needs it.

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt. I have this week’s items listed at the top of my side bar.

Friday’s Hunt v3.13

31 Mar

Welcome back to Friday’s Hunt.  I want to thank everyone who joined in last week.  I had a lot of fun visiting everyone who linked up.  It’s very simple.  Anyone can participate.  The link opens at 7pm Central time and will close Sunday at 7pm, so you have plenty of time to enter.  Hopefully, you’ll be inspired to visit some of the other entries.

If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week the topics will be:  Starts with N, Week’s Favorite, and blue.   I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top.  I am crazy busy with teaching and working on the farm right now, but I will make sure to visit all participants.  Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with M:  All of the goats on my farm that have started with the letter M. Those in bold are still on the farm.  It’s a lot…Mabel, Macy, Maddie, Maddie, Maggie, Maisie, Margot, Marley, Martha, Marty, Mary, Mason, Max, Meg, Midge, Mikey, Miles, Millie, Milo, Milton, Minnie, Miranda, Misty, Mocha, Molly, Monster, Monterrey Jack, Moose, Morgan, Mortie, Moses, Moses, Muffin, Myson.  In honor of my five original Saanen girls, I give you:

Of course, I have to feature my beautiful herd queen (semi-retired) Minnie Pearl.

Week’s Favorite: Someone asked me about Sky’s ears being flopped over.  I don’t think I answered, so I’ll talk about them now.  When I first took him to the vet, she said she didn’t think they would stand up like a typical German Shepard’s ears are supposed to do.  She did say we could glue them together to make them stand up, but I didn’t want to do that. I didn’t care that much.  Well, Wednesday I came home from work and found that he had one ear standing up.  It’s still standing up.  Now I want the other one to stand up because he looks a little lopsided.  Although, I think he’s still pretty cute.

Sky

Water: When I posted this last Friday, I had no idea we’d have so much water from the sky this week.  Still, it has mostly soaked in, so I had to look hard for a little pool of water.  Luckily, it had an interesting reflection in it.

Or some crazy bokeh around it.

Now it’s your turn!
