Hello, Weekend

11 Sep

This wraps up my first week of back to work teaching.  I assume I survived (I am back to scheduling my posts for the week–don’t worry I’ll interrupt them for any breaking news) but am exhausted.  So it’s leftovers today.

Pluto

Little miss 2TC was fascinated by the fluff suspended in air (and somehow attached to her).  She is so stinking cute and nice and

She did not inherit her mother’s messed up udder.  I think I’m talking myself into keeping her, but we’ll see.

My dog was happy to get back to the house.  Now, I’ve kicked him out during the day while I’m working.  Poor neglected pup.

Xerxes says he’s all buff and stinky and ready to go to work.

Hopefully, Tiger figures it out.  Of course, he has a while to wait.  We don’t have spring break this year, so I’ll end up kidding around our long Easter weekend.

Besides, he’s going to get Onyx for June babies.  She was enjoying the new salt/mineral block.

Until Haley chased her away.

I wish I could figure out a way to keep Archie for one breeding, but I need fewer goats (especially bucks) to manage.

Finally, Popcorn, just because.

Here’s to the weekend!

Hanging Out

8 Sep

The goats are spending most of their time out in pasture, but they do hang out in the barnyard in the morning and the evening.

The Day’s Work

Fairly early in the morning, the goats leave the barnyard.

They take their job seriously, for the most part.  However, you’ll find an occasional slacker lying down on the job.

The llamas help too.

Maybeline, Aurora, and Odie

Although they do tend to cut the day short and lounge in the barnyard all afternoon.

Happy Labor Day to all those who are celebrating this weekend.
