Trying to Stay Cool

20 Jul

We are ridiculously hot again.  Everyone just lounges around.  The goats are heading out to pasture fairly early in the morning.  They hang out under the trees during the hottest part of the day. It’s too hot for me to go out there, so all my pictures are from the barnyard.

Maybeline just hangs out luring Tony over so she can spit on him because she might be pregnant. Who knows?

On Wednesday, we had a line of storms pass through that brought everyone back up to the barnyard.

At least it cooled us down a bit before the ridiculous heat returned.

I am spending my time making sure everyone has plenty of clean water and that they aren’t getting overheated.

One evening, I did have to hose Aurora down to cool her off.

Aurora (And look-the pool is still clean!)

I’ve been worried about Tony, too, but he’s hanging in there. I’ve added a fan in the buck room to help keep the air moving.

The goats are doing okay.  We’re all ready for a break.

We are now looking at the end of this long stretch of hot weather.  Next week looks to be back to more reasonable temperatures.  Thankfully.

 

Naughty

20 May

These goats are so naughty.  The other day I got home from work to find a whole bunch of goats in the field.

They’ve also taken to some of them getting stuck on the wrong side of the new fence.

They can’t figure to walk back to the gate to get through there.  Seriously?

Hera has gotten her head stuck in the fence again a couple of times.  Crazy girl.  Why?

Moose is still an expert at opening the gate to the bird pen.

And he does check it every single time.  They’re going to drive me to pull my hair out!
