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.

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.

Signs of Spring

22 Feb

We saw more record warm weather today.  It’s really looking like spring.  It’s normal to see kids with their maa out in pasture this time of year.

It’s not unusual for the chickens to start laying with the longer days.

I can see the sun set more to the west rather than in the southwest corner of the farm.

These are all pretty normal for this time of year.  But the grass is not supposed to be green.

The magnolia tree is not supposed to be getting ready to bloom.

The goats should not be losing their winter coats.

It makes me nervous for what the coming spring and summer will bring for weather.

I hope you’ll consider joining me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items at the top of my side bar.
