Another Rainy Weekend

3 Nov

The rain started about nine in the morning today.  I’m glad I started my Mozzarella as early as I did because it was just starting when I went back to the house.  Let’s face it, you can never have too much Mozzarella in the freezer.

It was mostly drizzle for a while.

The goats stayed on the hill as long as they could,

but it wasn’t long before they gave up and came back to the barnyard.

The dog was lazy in the house.

So was Snickers.

The rain is supposed to continue until tomorrow afternoon.  It really makes it hard to get much done when it rains the entire weekend, and I have so much to do.

Happy Halloween from all of us at Eden Hills!

Retired and Weaned

15 Oct

I have four girls retiring this year.  Obviously, Harley is not getting anywhere near a buck since she’s lucky to be alive after last year’s pregnancy with a back injury.

Dolly is also retiring.  She was ten when she had her kids in June, and that’s the oldest I’ve ever had kid.  If it weren’t for the copper, she could probably do it fine, but I’m not taking any chances.

Cookie is also retiring since she really struggled with the anemia this year.  She also has really sagging stomach muscles, so it’s time.

Then there’s Pistol.  She better stay retired this time.  No more oopsie babies.  I don’t care how cute they are!

With moving the girls in with the bucks, that means I also had to wean a couple of my March girls.  Athena is actually being a big baby about it.

I’m glad to be getting all of Cinnamon’s milk for a change!  I also weaned Aphrodite.

She took it much better than Athena.
