More Thoughts on Extreme Weather

23 Jan

This week our weather appears to be pretty normal.  There is snow on the ground.  It’s winter coat weather.

And it’s also not so cold that I have goats in the garage.

I have to say, I’m so frustrated with the crazy swings in weather.  My fears from our stupid cold spell in December seem to be coming true.

Mr. Peacock

Mr. Peacock seems to have frozen his toes.

I think it’s just one foot and I’m not sure how much he’s going to lose.  I hope he can still get around better once he doesn’t have dead toes hanging on.

This is the kind of thing that I never had to deal with until the last three winters.  I don’t want the extreme swings to be the new normal. I’m not equipped for it.  But look what happens for the end of the month. At least it’s still above zero.

It looks like it will continue for the first few days of February as well. Then it just keeps going with the ups and downs for the rest of the month.

End of the Week Photo Dump

20 Jan

Just some more pictures from the past week.

This is the week Trace and Zinnia came into heat; now I wait three weeks to see if they settled.

I bribed them to come out with meal worms

Tux

I’m not sure he leaves the middle part of the barn other than to get a drink. He feels safe here.

Sky smelling Tux on me

Cutie was also rubbing on the fence out in pasture

Maybeline–just because

Bob staring into the barn, presumably wishing Tux weren’t in there.

Hope you have a great weekend!

More Tree-ts

17 Jan

My son and his girlfriend came to visit over the weekend.

They delivered more tree-ts!

Look at those excited Popcorn eyes

Two of them.

The goats were very excited.

Moose and Casey

I would love to know what Ostara was thinking as she stared at the ice star.

Some goats were also disappointed that they didn’t get any.

Frodo, Penelope, Trace, and Zinnia

Maybe next year.
