Spoiled

11 Oct

I might have some spoiled goats.  I know that’s hard to believe.

Dolly

But how can I deny Dolly?  She is my oldest goat; she’s cute and sweet, and I just can’t say “no” to that face.

Popcorn doesn’t eat with the other goats.  It’s probably wise–they still don’t fully accept him.  Jerks.

Maisie, Margarita, Moose, Cinnamon (Casey behind) (Wanda in front)

He just hangs out by the gate (with my other boy).

Popcorn and Sky

He has figured out that the milk room has sweet feed, so he’s been known to come over.

Again, how can I say “no” to that little cutie?  I can’t.

But he did get his first hooficure the other day while he was eating.

Myson managed to come into the milk room for the first time the other day to get his hooves done.

He makes the milk room look small.  Just saying.

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

2TC

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

Blaze

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.

Tiger

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!

Power!

2 Sep

Yesterday, about the time my scheduled post was going up, the electricians finished hooking power up to my house!  I am so excited to simply have a light in the kitchen.

It did change quite a bit.  It comes over from the pole and down into the back porch.  There’s no more breaker box in the basement above the toilet (something about regulations).

Then it goes back up to the upstairs breaker box.

It also goes over to the well house.  I have well water for the critters again!

It also goes to the greenhouse.  Little Avril has light in there now.  (Sorry it’s so fuzzy; they wouldn’t stand still and pose.)  She also has her mom.

Avril and Astra’s tail

Astra’s udder was looking pretty full, so I decided she might be getting more from her mom than I thought.  I put Astra over there with her.

Avril is happier.  She is horribly weak yet, but the diarrhea is better.  I am also happier now, but it did take me forever to find Rocky again.  He was hiding in the basement ceiling.  What a chicken.

Sky and Rocky

I’m still moving back into the house from the soap room, and the electricians had to come back this morning to finish up the buried line to the garage, but things are really starting to get a bit more normal again.
