April Showers

3 Apr

The pasture is really starting to get some green to it.

The goats have enjoyed being out there.

After our rain that left the barnyard rather muddy, they actually decided it was much nicer to nap out on the hill rather than come in the barnyard for their afternoon siesta.  Don’t worry.  They come back to the safety of the barn at night.

We had another soaking rain all day today.  I swear I can stand here and watch the pasture turn more green.

Unfortunately, it also means everyone was unhappy today.  The goats were wet because they didn’t want to wait for me to give them hay, or they were hungry in the barn.  It also means Sky was cooped up in the house all day.

Of course, he did track lots of mud in after his potty break.

He was a little wild when I got home.  Okay.  He was a lot wild when I got home.

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.

Friday’s Hunt v3.13

31 Mar

Welcome back to Friday’s Hunt.  I want to thank everyone who joined in last week.  I had a lot of fun visiting everyone who linked up.  It’s very simple.  Anyone can participate.  The link opens at 7pm Central time and will close Sunday at 7pm, so you have plenty of time to enter.  Hopefully, you’ll be inspired to visit some of the other entries.

If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week the topics will be:  Starts with N, Week’s Favorite, and blue.   I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top.  I am crazy busy with teaching and working on the farm right now, but I will make sure to visit all participants.  Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with M:  All of the goats on my farm that have started with the letter M. Those in bold are still on the farm.  It’s a lot…Mabel, Macy, Maddie, Maddie, Maggie, Maisie, Margot, Marley, Martha, Marty, Mary, Mason, Max, Meg, Midge, Mikey, Miles, Millie, Milo, Milton, Minnie, Miranda, Misty, Mocha, Molly, Monster, Monterrey Jack, Moose, Morgan, Mortie, Moses, Moses, Muffin, Myson.  In honor of my five original Saanen girls, I give you:

Millie, Millie, Cutie, Maddie, and Meg

Of course, I have to feature my beautiful herd queen (semi-retired) Minnie Pearl.

Week’s Favorite: Someone asked me about Sky’s ears being flopped over.  I don’t think I answered, so I’ll talk about them now.  When I first took him to the vet, she said she didn’t think they would stand up like a typical German Shepard’s ears are supposed to do.  She did say we could glue them together to make them stand up, but I didn’t want to do that. I didn’t care that much.  Well, Wednesday I came home from work and found that he had one ear standing up.  It’s still standing up.  Now I want the other one to stand up because he looks a little lopsided.  Although, I think he’s still pretty cute.

Sky

Water: When I posted this last Friday, I had no idea we’d have so much water from the sky this week.  Still, it has mostly soaked in, so I had to look hard for a little pool of water.  Luckily, it had an interesting reflection in it.

Or some crazy bokeh around it.

Now it’s your turn!

Rain Again

29 Mar

We’ve had rain again most of the day.  Luckily, there hasn’t been anything severe, but we’ve had quite a bit of rain.

That means mud and unhappy goats.  We are all hoping for some sunshine soon.
