Friday’s Hunt v4.19

10 Nov

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.

We are working on round four! It’s hard to believe. I did make a slight change. It will still go through the alphabet for the first prompt, but there are two other prompts that will change each week. As always, you can choose to do one or all. If you enjoy the week’s favorite, by all means continue to add that. If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week the topics will be: Starts with T, black and white, and paper. I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. I am crazy busy with work off the farm and everything on the farm right now, but I will try to make sure to visit all participants. I have to say, the change to my teaching assignment this year is really killing me. Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with S:  Sister goats!  LilyAnn and Sidney are both adorable.  That’s why I haven’t been able to decide on which one I want to keep, which means I think they are both keepers.

LilyAnn and Sidney

Metal:  The big metal round bale feeder has been nice to have here for the two girls.  Yes, we are still waiting on crias.  Odie might be going a bit stir crazy.  She tends to race from one end of the small enclosure to the other.  Maybeline is more laid back about the pre-cria confinement.

Mineral:  The goats enjoy their salt and mineral block combination.  I have to get the block like this because some greedy piggy goats will eat the soft mineral and molasses from the buck to the point that they make themselves sick.  Yes, we learned that the hard way (Cough. Coral. Cough.).


Now it’s your turn!


Lladies Don’t Spit

5 Nov

But llamas do.  It looks like Odie went on a spitting rampage.


The first time I saw one of the llamas with that bottom lip hanging, I thought something was seriously wrong.  Nope.  Just spitting.

Looks like they had quite the war since Maybeline’s lip is hanging too.

I don’t know why they do that because they obviously do not like the taste afterwards.  Silly lladies.  (Maybe they should have crias and see if that improves their mood.)

I Want Fall

26 Oct

It’s been a little while since I complained about the weather, so I figure I should do that again.  Seriously.  Look at this.  It’s October.  I want sixty and sunshine.  Friday’s weather is totally unacceptable.

Especially since Odie and Maybeline are going to have crias.  Sometime.  I don’t know when, but if the weather is bad, that seems to increase the likelihood that they will kid?     calve?      cria?  give birth.


I bribed them into the front pen that was too muddy to put them in before.  Unfortunately, with our crazy wetter than usual October (seriously–we’ve had more rain in October than we did all summer long), the hay is moldy.  My nephew is going to try to bring a new bale for them.  Until then, they have some pads in the building.


Unfortunately, they don’t really want to stay in there by themselves.  They’ve really bonded with the other llamas, and they think they should get to rejoin the rest of the group.  Farina is also not happy with losing her new friends.


They can still sleep next to each other.  This is where they have been sleeping at night, just on the other side of the fence.

I also have it arranged for them to get checked during the day tomorrow in the event someone gives birth outside.
