Another Walk in Pasture

12 May

After the freeze debacle and continuing allergy issues, I once again decided I just had to get out of the house and try to enjoy the goats’ company again.  I put my mask on and picked up Popcorn in the barnyard.  For some reason, he was the only goat up here, and I really want him to go out to pasture to eat with the rest of the goats.  That was also a good excuse to go for a walk.  Anyhow, we started out following the trail.

We took time to nibble the grass.

We came across the llamas down on the bottom.

Eventually, we found the herd!  I was quite pleased to see that nobody was on the wrong side of the fence this time.

Well, mostly.  Butterscotch was nibbling through the fence.

A lot of the goats were grazing.  Caroline rubbed against me so hard, she about knocked me over.  Myson came up for cheek scratchies.  It was nice.

Some of the girls were just lounging out there.

Holy goats, Hilda! How many kids are you going to have?

The kids were playing on the brush pile.

Then I turned around and saw Caroline–on the wrong side of the fence.  Seriously?

I went back and got another nice panel to chop up and keep them from going under the fence.  I swear it’s a never-ending job.

My Christmas cactus is blooming!  It’s been a couple of years since it’s had blooms, so I am happy to see them.

My bratty Bambi.

I hope you aren’t tired of 2TC yet.

We went back to winter on Saturday.

I got to see the red-bellied woodpecker.  I really miss my bird feeders.

Just some more of the kids.

Third Week In a Row

2 Mar

For the last three weekends, we’ve had amazing weather!  It’s been perfect for the herd to go out to pasture and enjoy themselves.

Actually, with most all of the snow melting, they are going to pasture pretty much every day.  Although, Uno is such a wimp he thinks he still needs the heat lamp at night.

With them spending so much time in pasture, that means they are mostly feeding themselves again.

That’s really good news since I have to work late all this week with parent-teacher conferences.

Even without conferences, I enjoy not having to feed full hay.  They enjoy not being stuck in the barnyard too.
