Myson is a big goat–he’s actually the tallest on the farm.

Here he is with one of the littlest goats, Kate.

Moose is the biggest goat if you go by weight.  That also makes him the biggest wether.

Although, Blaze looks like she might be the biggest around.

Popcorn is fully a wether now, after the vet finished removing his man parts.  He is my littlest wether right now.

Popcorn

Although, after he finishes growing up, Pluto will be my littlest again.

As for cute, they are pretty much all a tie.

In a Routine

10 Aug

We certainly seem to have hit a routine for this late summer.

Pluto and Popcorn

After milking, I spend the rest of the day making cheese or canning.

time to grate cheese, make cheese, and put some fruit in the yogurt

onions to chop and freeze for winter’s use

salsa for my son

The goats go out to pasture pretty early and stay there until late in the evening.

Dolly (and Sidney in front)

Of course, I do step out to give the chickens my left-over veggies.

My four milking does come up to get milked and go right back out.

Cutie and Ava coming up (might be Pistol behind)

I did just recently switch to only milking Cinnamon in the evening because she really doesn’t have enough to mess with, but she is my old lady.  She deserves to at least come in once a day for a while.

Then it’s time to finish up chores and we all are ready to hit the roost.

After a good night’s sleep, it’s time to do it all again!
