Greedy Girls

28 Sep

I’ve been trying to let Dolly and Pistol in to eat in the evenings when I get done milking.  For some reason, Lily showed up the other day and announced that she wanted in also.  So I let them all three in.

Pistol, Lily, and Dolly

That’s three generations of greedy girls:  Lily and her daughter Dolly and her daughter Pistol.

The fourth generation, Clover, thought she should get to come in too, but I’d just finished milking her.  Besides, I’m not sure a fourth one would fit in there.

Lily’s black streak seem to be spreading some more.

I wonder how much more it’s going to spread.  I still am just in amazement over all the different things the lack of copper causes.

Old Goat’s Home

16 Apr

Minnie Pearl is feeling all of her thirteen years.  It’s hard to go out to pasture all day, so she was staying in the barnyard in the afternoon.  I decided to give her some hay since she was the only goat up here.  The llamas showed up.

Then there were a few sprinkles, so the rest of the goats came back up.  You’ll notice that Minnie is nowhere near her hay.

I’m pretty sure Maybeline is not happy with me taking a picture of her stuffing her face, but that’s what she gets for stealing Minnie’s hay.

So where is Minnie?  I put her in the north paddock.

I was hoping to wait another week or so to let it grow out more (since I just took the bucks off there), but she needs it.

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt. I have this week’s items listed at the top of my side bar.
