Another Weekend Project

11 Mar

I had two goals for the first weekend of spring break:  building a fence to prepare for kidding and cleaning out the north stall of the garage.

I am so tired of my garage being a barn.  Even though I’m cleaning out half of it, the other half is still barn because we have rain in the forecast for this week of kidding.  I might need it.  Anyhow, I got my wheelbarrow out and started scooping while everyone was in pasture so I could leave my big red gate open.

I kid you not, I had only taken one load to the compost pile when the llamas came up from pasture.

Of course, they thought they had to check it out.  That meant opening and closing the gate every time I went through it both directions.

Then the goats came up, and my path to the compost pile filled up with obstacles.

Did I mention the wheel on my wheelbarrow is flat and I need to go to town before I can fix it?  Despite all the drama, I did manage to get the job done over the weekend!

Now I can put my car in there again.

Third Week In a Row

2 Mar

For the last three weekends, we’ve had amazing weather!  It’s been perfect for the herd to go out to pasture and enjoy themselves.

Actually, with most all of the snow melting, they are going to pasture pretty much every day.  Although, Uno is such a wimp he thinks he still needs the heat lamp at night.

With them spending so much time in pasture, that means they are mostly feeding themselves again.

That’s really good news since I have to work late all this week with parent-teacher conferences.

Even without conferences, I enjoy not having to feed full hay.  They enjoy not being stuck in the barnyard too.
