What They Do In Pasture

16 Jan

This time of year, the goat don’t really go too far out in pasture, but there’s plenty to do on that first hill.  Obviously, they eat, which means I can cut back on their hay.

Ostara nibbling grass

They rub against the fence.

Moose

Aphrodite

Ava going for the chin scratch

They scratch their horns/faces on the shrubs.

Victoria (she has picked up weight, but still needs a bit more)

They scare innocent squirrels.

Venus eating while the squirrel runs

Wondering why he’s been invaded and hoping they don’t eat the walnuts.

They might do a little fighting.

Hilda was rubbing on Wanda but decided, since her horn was already there, she might as well poke her.

They wear off a lot of energy! That’s a good thing.

Spring Walks

13 May

Even though it’s been really busy, I’m trying to make sure to take time to enjoy some walks in pasture.

My New Friend

1 May

I brought a new friend home with me.  After months of supply chain issues making it impossible to get a new camera to replace mine (I’ve been using the old backup camera for months), I was finally able to order one to be delivered to a Best Buy close to me.

All buckled in and ready to come home.

I confess, I ordered this when I was totally sleep deprived.  I was just going to get the body and use the lenses I already had, but I ended up ordering the kit with the lenses.  I am thrilled.  The new lens is way lighter and makes it easier to not have shake with my long shots.  I am practicing on birds.

I think I’m in love!

You might have photo overload for a while as I’m playing and getting comfortable with it.
