Freshly Bedded

5 Jan

My nephew brought a big round cornstalk bale to bed the back part of the barn.

Moose, Casey, and Margarita

It is a challenge.  This space is a bit tricky to maneuver with a tractor and bale, but he finally got it done.  I don’t know how.

We had to chip the big sliding door free from being frozen to the ground, so we could open it farther.  It was really an ordeal.

It did, however, make everyone happy.

Myson checking it out

Next summer, I think we’re going to try to remove the first section of fence to make a wider gate area.  If we’re really good, we’ll redo the fence along the lane and make it wider and so the goats can keep the scrub brush and trees eaten from the west side of the barn too.

We’ll see how ambitious we are though.

The goats are still going out to pasture to eat.

Even though we’ve had snow, none of it has stuck long.

Athena (front) and Cinnamon

They also enjoy napping out there in the grass rather than on the frozen bumpy barnyard.

I’m glad they can still get to the grass because it means I don’t have to hay them yet.

That means chores are still pretty easy.

Tony, Harley, and Anubis

I am only haying the two little girls and the group up north.

Antigone and Cupid

Although Antigone and Cupid prefer the sweet feed.

Random Goat Notes

I can’t believe how big Moose is anymore.  He’s still a pain with trying to open my chicken pen gate.

Myson is my sweetie.

Harley really has bonded with the boys.  I hate that I’m going to have to separate them very soon (an oopsie baby would kill her).

Harley with Pluto and Anubis

Pluto is also getting better all the time.  He’s round and fuzzy, and he makes me smile and laugh.

I thought the lineup of spotted girls was kind of cute.  Although, Hera does kind of stand out as the odd one.

Hera, Gidget, Blaze and Bonnie

It’s also three generations (Blaze, Gidget, and Hera) with Blaze’s twin sister for good measure.
