Once Again…

3 Jan

I looked out the window one day last week just as the goats were headed out to pasture. I went out (I think it was to let the geese out), and they all came running back to the barnyard on the off chance I might give them food.

That’s when I noticed two goats fighting in the lane.  A closer look showed it was Myson and Zeus.  What the heck?  He was in Alcatraz.

At least they were coming back from pasture.

I just had to wait until he came through the barn door and grab a horn.  He was pretty easy to lead back to where he belonged.

Then they showed me how my twine around the “gate” was busted.

Fat wethers were trying to play with him.  They popped it open.  Brats.

Of course, Clover had to be in heat.

That means another shot to prevent oopsie babies.  I am really getting tired of this.

My boys are such sweet guys–the bucks and the wethers.

Zeus: “What? There’s a fence between us. I’m being good.”

Myson

Well, except for Xerxes.

At least he’s handsome.

Walking In the Pasture

14 Oct

I decided I had to go for a walk after being sick most of last week.  Even though we were under a high wind warning and only made it to around 50°F for a high temp, I grabbed my camera and went out.

Actually, it wasn’t too bad on the bottom because the hills do help shelter us from the wind.

I also closed the gates for the winter.  They have to stay on the front half of the Back Forty now.  Hopefully, that will prevent any losses to coyotes.

I also checked and saw that there’s not a lot of clover on the bottom, so I’m going to leave the wethers on the pasture with everyone else.  Hopefully, I don’t regret that later.

Overall, it was a nice walk.
