More of Our Snowy Weekend

13 Jan

I really do enjoy having some snow.  When it isn’t a blizzard.

Pluto is just so stinking cute! And sweet!

Pluto

Sky doesn’t seem to even notice the snow.

Sky

He doesn’t care if it melts on him when he comes back inside and takes a nap.

The goats are not quite as happy with it, but they will survive.

Fionn

They all got plenty of food given to them.

Fionn and Wanda

They do have shelter (as long as I can keep my cranky girls from fighting).

Dolly and Lily

Like I said, the geese don’t even notice the snow.

This is a perfect snow to sit back and enjoy!

Temperatures Rising

15 Dec

Well, after a record cold November, our temperatures have been creeping up, and now we’re warmer than average for this time of year.

Caroline

It looks like it’s going to stick around for a while too.  There’s been blue skies and wonderful sunshine!

Wanda

The water is completely open back there in the ditch.

Athena

Yes, I’m still complaining because, even though I enjoy it, it’s really hard on the animals when the temperatures change rapidly like this.

Lily

They do still enjoy getting to go out to pasture though.  It’s much tastier to have trees to snack on than just boring hay in the barnyard.

Ava

Although, I am also enjoying the goats and llamas not needing to be given hay yet.

They are happy to be out there in pasture most of the day.

Maybeline and Odie

Even though it does look like Maybeline and Odie are rather irritated with the gate being shut.

Oh well.  If they did a better job guarding the goats, I wouldn’t have had to put the fence up.

This and That

18 Nov

Just some extra pictures from the last week or so.

Sky’s favorite toy is still his Jolly Ball.  Best toy ever!  And, yes, I almost got hit by the ball and run over by the dog.

Sky

These two girls are still cranky whenever they see Tony.  I am almost afraid to hope they are bred though, and it’s still a really long time before they would be due.

Odie and Maybeline

I think I shared that I couldn’t touch Hera anymore after I caught her and put the horn apparatus back on her.  She finally got to where I could pet her again, and then I had to catch her and give her a dose of copper.  You guessed it.  I can’t touch her again.  I am certainly planning on locking her in with a buck in a small space so I can get her back to being friendly.

Clover and Wanda

Leo is doing well.  We thought he might have diabetes last spring, but he is actually doing quite well now.  I’m thrilled and amazed since he’s pushing eighteen.

Leo

I am very happy to report that we haven’t had any coyote attacks out in pasture.  The goats are out there almost as soon as the sun comes up, but everyone has stayed safe.  I’m going to credit the fence away from the woodlot.

The good news about Zinnia not being bred is that I can keep milking her all the way until the first of May if she stays in milk.  I’m not sure she will, but I can try.

Zinnia

A woodpecker climbing up the maple tree–even if I just get to see their back side, I enjoy them.  The red-bellied woodpeckers are my favorites.

I told you I was going to take lots of pictures on the weekends to make sure I could blog through the week.
