Unsalted

13 Oct

Bubbles looks sweet, but she has more than a healthy dose of attitude.

Bubbles

She’s the hardest to give her copper; I have to straddle her and wrestle a little bit to get the capsule down her.  Thankfully, most of the goats aren’t that bad.

Flower

Some are super easy.  I have to watch out or they’ll try to sneak seconds.

Cupid needs more orange instead of brown spots.

Peanuts make it so much easier to give my goats their copper capsules.

Chiffon

Unfortunately, the last bag of peanuts I picked up was unsalted.  It was an accident.

Casey

It has made it more of a challenge though.  I have some who have actually turned their noses up at them.

Xerxes refused to eat his; later he ate one that was just a peanut (not peanut butter and copper capsule on the inside).  Now that had me wondering if my peanut butter is stale or something.

Xerxes

Luckily, the next day he gobbled it down!  I will try to get some salted peanuts for them though before next time.

Spoiled

11 Oct

I might have some spoiled goats.  I know that’s hard to believe.

Dolly

But how can I deny Dolly?  She is my oldest goat; she’s cute and sweet, and I just can’t say “no” to that face.

Popcorn doesn’t eat with the other goats.  It’s probably wise–they still don’t fully accept him.  Jerks.

He just hangs out by the gate (with my other boy).

Popcorn and Sky

He has figured out that the milk room has sweet feed, so he’s been known to come over.

Again, how can I say “no” to that little cutie?  I can’t.

But he did get his first hooficure the other day while he was eating.

Myson managed to come into the milk room for the first time the other day to get his hooves done.

Myson

He makes the milk room look small.  Just saying.

Hanging Out

8 Sep

The goats are spending most of their time out in pasture, but they do hang out in the barnyard in the morning and the evening.
