Other Critters

22 May

It’s not just my animals here on the farm.  I get to see lots of birds.

There’s quite a few squirrels out in pasture.

Occasionally we have some other critters show up.  Or Bob might bring them up.

Bob Cat

Yep.  He caught a baby bunny.  Luckily, he’s not a starving cat because he didn’t notice when I took his bunny from him.  He was just waiting and resting until it tried to escape and he could play with it some more.

I really don’t see very many bunnies here with the cats and dog ready to chase them.

I took it to the Back Forty and let it go.

Should have changed camera setting first, but I was more worried about Bob than pictures.

This morning, I think I rescued the same baby bunny from Bob again.  I did warn it that it might not be lucky enough for me to be around to save it a third time.

Hopefully, it has learned its lesson.  Then this happened.

When the vet was here helping me push pills down the goats, kittens wandered out from under the workbench.  Seriously?  I only have fixed cats.  In the twenty springs I’ve spent on the farm, this is the first time I’ve had kittens born here.

Margarita tried butting one into the ground.  Seriously?

They were thin and horribly dehydrated.

They are back to healthy and have already left the farm.

After the Storms

16 Apr

I am pretty sure it’s going to be a while before my fences get fixed.  I did shut the gate between the barnyard and pasture, so nobody can go out there.

Maybeline wasn’t too happy; although she’s obviously been eating hay.

But my fence that keeps Aurora, Lily and Vinnie out of the pasture is also smashed.  I’m pretty sure Vinnie isn’t leaving the building until it warms up (like July).

Lily already managed to sneak out once, but she just wanted in the barnyard.  I’m not sure she really needs to go in there.  Everyone is cranky.  I put her back where she belongs.

Lily

I am not sure if Aurora will stay put or not.

Aurora

I figure it’s better to be safe than sorry, so I set a couple of T-posts and threw same panels across to make sure they stay in.  I’m not the only one dealing with the after effects of the storm.

I hope they had good insurance because I’m sure their house is a total loss.  Poor babies.

Random Stuff and Updates

14 Dec

Obviously, we’re still waiting for crias.  I’m beginning to wonder if they’re ever going to have babies.

But they do seem content with just standing around and eating.

Snickers and Leo were enjoying a nap.

I saw a random squirrel in the oak tree.

Margarita is doing quite well, and she and Maggie are bonding again now that Maggie knows her girl is truly weaned.

I’m looking forward to longer days soon.
