Some Friday Notes

14 Jan

My nephew brought the goats his Christmas tree last weekend. By the time I got home, they had stripped it clean.

By the next day, they had a good start on the bark.

My peacock is working hard on getting his tail grown out.  He’ll look handsome for those hens who really don’t care.

The goose appreciates the fresh corn stalk bedding.  It’s nice to snuggle down in when it’s cold outside.

With all the breeding talk, my wethers were feeling left out, so here they are from oldest to youngest.

Salem seems to be accepting Sky finally.

These two llamas are just crazy.  Actually, I think there is some weird hormonal thing going on.

Odie and Maybeline

Which explains why we’ve never had a cria.

And I just have to share Tiger again.

Oh, that tail!

Who’s In Heat?

9 Jan

When we’re breeding in the cold like this, it’s sometimes hard to notice when someone is in heat.  But Saturday it was pretty obvious who was not in heat.  Nothing going on with Xerxes and his girls.

No action with Freddie and his girls.

Pretty boring with Benji and his girls.

So who was in heat that had Benji’s attention?

Maisie.

She was flirting with every buck and wether on the farm.

I’ve got news for her. She’s retired!

Evenings

9 Dec

By the time I get home from work in the evening, the goats are up from pasture and waiting for me to feed them.

I sometimes feel like I’m being watched.

After chores, there’s just a little time before I go back out to milk.  During this time, the sun sets.

The llamas are spending a lot of time out in pasture right now.  I hardly ever see them.

Joy and Zinnia want to know why it’s so dark when I come out to milk them.

I will be glad when the sun starts its journey back north.
