Rainy Days

We’re still in this rainy pattern that’s impacting a huge portion of the country.

I’m really glad that we are just on the edge of it, and nothing has been severe.

We all like the sunshine better than the gray skies.  Except the geese don’t seem to care.

It does make the grass turn green; however, and everyone likes nice green pastures!

Hopefully, I’ll get all my  new moms out on the front pasture this weekend when we have some sunshine again.  Then I can take pictures outside instead of through the window too.

Sharing with Skywatch Friday and Good Fences.

Good. Random. Fun.

I have to say, the goats are killing me during chores.  They are stir crazy and ready for spring.  They run over me and fight over the food pans.  I get stuck in a swarm of pregnant goat bellies, and I can’t move.  I think my yelling, “Get out of my way!” just alerts the rest of the herd to where I’m at so they can join the melee too.

Yesterday morning, I was surprised to see that they went out to pasture.

Goats

It wasn’t very long, but I hope they got rid of some of that energy.  I have to say, chores last night were quite pleasant.  None of that monkey business.

Goats

Today, they were back to crazy.  I keep telling them they have no reason to complain compared to some places.

I’ve still been working on dry soup mixes.  My latest are lentil and mushroom and rice.

They are both pretty good.

Another Scavenger Hunt Sunday

This week Ashley gave us the task of finding the following:  Pink, Old School, Walk, Accessory, and On My Table.

Pink:  Bambi’s nose is about as pink as they come.  She is adorable, and she’s a brat.  I love her though, and she’s due to have kids again on April 1.

Old School:  I feed my goats old school.  I have small bales that I take pad by pad to feed them.  For some reason, the first thing Millie (or many of them) does is dump the tub and eat from the ground.  I’ve honestly given up on most of the tubs.  Can you tell Bambi gets her pink nose from her maa, Millie?

Walk:  If you remember, I shoveled paths for the animals and me.  They were so nice, but now they are mud.  Really, really, muddy. And there’s ice underneath.  That makes them a bit treacherous.

Barnyard Trails

I wanted to take advantage of our beautiful day by going for a walk in the pasture, but it was a bit snowy and sloppy.

I don’t know why it would be slushy with thirteen inches of snow melting quickly and running off the barn roof.

I didn’t make it very far.  I had to admire the beauty from a distance.

Accessory:  Mother Nature must have decided we needed a splash of color in the winter landscape.  I’m glad to have this cardinal accessory.

On My Table:  At any given time on my kitchen table you’re likely to find a basking or bathing cat lying among the plants.

Snickers

They are pretty sure the table belongs to them.  And I can see that I should wash the muddy paw prints off the window again while the weather is nice.
