Friday’s Hunt v3. 23

9 Jun

Welcome back to Friday’s Hunt. I want to thank everyone who joined in last week. I had a lot of fun visiting everyone who linked up. It’s very simple. Anyone can participate. The link opens at 7pm Central time and will close Sunday at 7pm, so you have plenty of time to enter. Hopefully, you’ll be inspired to visit some of the other entries.

If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week the topics will be: Starts with X, Week’s Favorite, and insect. I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top. I am crazy busy with teaching and working on the farm right now, but I will make sure to visit all participants. Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with W:  I’ve had a few W goats on the farm:  Wanda, Wanda, Watson, Wendall, Whitey, Will, Willie, Willie, Wilson, and Winnie.  The only one currently on the farm is Wanda (who was named after her sister Wanda).  Here she is with her daughter Ava.

Week’s Favorite:  My week’s favorite is a no brainer this week.  Tequilla and Margarita finally figured out how to nurse their mom!  Yay!  No more milking and bottle feeding.

Pastel: I was really surprised that I do not have many pastel things around the farm.  I finally settled on my cherry blossom goat’s milk soap.  It’s also one of my favorite fragrances.

Now it’s your turn!

Edited:  Sorry I forgot the linky.  Oops.. I blame kidding.


Who’s Due

20 Apr

It’s just over a month until our last round of kidding for the year.  I’m trying to decide who’s bred and who isn’t.  I can tell for sure some of them are pregnant, but I won’t guarantee they all are yet.  Who’s due?








At least, this is who I’m going to say is bred until I get evidence to the contrary.

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s list at the top of my side bar.

Remixing the Herd

9 Apr

I’ve had my moms on the front pasture with their kids so they could take them out while they ate and not have to worry about keeping track of them in the Back Forty.


The rest of the goats have been on the Back Forty with the llady llamas.  Well, Friday evening, I mixed them all together.

It went fairly well.  Most of the kids stayed in the barnyard.  I think Bambi was the designated babysitter.

Others went out to pasture and found all kinds of new things to bounce on.


Bambi finally went out to pasture, but she didn’t bring the kids, so they all ended up on the front pasture.  It was a bit noisy when they couldn’t get to their maas.

Finally, everyone ended up back in the barnyard.


February kids met March kids, and there was a bit of head butting, but it’s all good!

Until I have to mix things up again.

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.
