Some of the Girls

9 Jan

These little girls make me smile.  I can’t believe Venus is as big as Moira anymore; although, Moira seems to take after her grandmaa Coffee, so it shouldn’t be a surprise.

Bubbles is growing into a beautiful young doe.

Pistol is really starting to show her age.  It’s hard to believe how many old goats I have now.

Pistol

She and Antigone are always together.

Wanda is looking good; although, she still needs to keep growing that hair back where she rubbed it off.  I’d still like to see her put on a bit more weight.  I wish those fat boy wethers hadn’t let her out.

Cookie is another one who is really showing her age.  I can’t believe how quickly time flies and my little kids are now old ladies.

Dolly and Pluto have really bonded again.

Such sweet babies!  Well, they might all have a bit of goatitude. 😉

Moms and Kids

16 Dec

I talk a lot about the amazing bonds the goats have with their family members.  When the kids grow up, they stay close to their moms and siblings.

Maggie and Margarita

Even when I have to separate them for a while to wean them, they get back together with their family groups quickly.

Marge and Cookie

That’s why it amazes me that Astra will have nothing to do with Moira.

I figured when Moira came back out with the herd, it might take a little bit, but they would form that family bond again.

Moira wants to be with her maa, but Astra has nothing to do with her.  I don’t know why she won’t.  It makes me sad.

Drying Up

8 Dec

After a solid week without moisture, the barnyard is finally starting to dry up.  Don’t get me wrong, there’s still mud, but it’s not ridiculous boot sucking mud.

Moira

The goats are actually okay with lounging in outside in the barnyard now.

Since it’s mostly dry, I even let Reva keep her silver boot off after she removed it herself.  And her foot is healing.  It just needs air and dry.

Of course, it’s not going to get any drier because we have rain/snow coming tomorrow.

Astra

We really don’t need that.
