Success!

1 Dec

I noticed that my three little kids who had been in the yard were starting to go out on the hill to eat.  Even if they weren’t with everyone else, they had plenty of green grass.  Well, last weekend, I found them out in pasture with everyone!

Of course, when I got home today, Vanilla and Strawberry had been shut in the greenhouse.  I swear we take one step forward and two backwards.

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

Frosty Morning

26 Nov

I was up early getting ready for Christmas in the Soap Room, and I was rewarded with a beautiful sunrise.  This was the view from my front yard.

It was awfully frosty though.

It was just a few minutes before the sun was no longer behind my fence post.

I was surprised how early the goats headed out to pasture.  It was still completely covered in frost.

I had two frosty llamas.  For some reason the girls decided to stay outside.  Llenny looks like he doesn’t understand it.  Don’t worry.  If the girls really want to go inside, there’s two sections in the main barn and two more buildings they could go in.

The two girls are not happy with him (notice their ears).  I’ve heard that the girls will spit on a male if they are bred, but I have no idea if that’s true or not.  Hopefully, they are bred and we’ll have crias before cold weather gets here next fall.
