The Benefits of Going to Pasture

21 Feb

For me, the benefit of the goats going out to pasture is that it really cuts down on the amount of hay I have to feed.  And with stupid off-farm job obligations, that is going to be important for the next couple of weeks.  For the goats, it means they get to run around and wear off excess energy.

Bambi

Margarita and Venus

They have plenty of places to scratch between their horns.

Bark.  Yummy bark.

Especially since we’re out of the delicious derecho hay.

Rosie

It really helps to end some of their crankiness in the barnyard.

End of the Week Photo Drop

18 Feb

Yep, just a bunch of pictures from the last week.

Cupid is getting big!

Salem in my plants again

Antigone has decided she likes to get away from Flower by hanging out in the garage.  Unfortunately for her, Flower has decided she likes to be in there too when it’s too cold for me to open the door outside.

Everyone eating on the south side of the barn to try and stay out of the wind.

Odie, Maybeline, Margarita, and Aurora

Pluto is just too stinking cute.

I’m glad he got his personality from the sweet side of the family and not his dad, Xerxes.

I am still cleaning things out and filling the dumpster.  In my cleaning, I hauled some containers of old popcorn on the cob out of my basement.  Before I got them in the Ranger to take to the burn pile, Sky thought he would like to try it out.

I am thrilled that the days are getting longer.
