When It’s Cold

13 Jan

While I’m frantically trying to find ways to keep everyone safe and warm out in the barn, the ones in the house are pretty content.

Leo

Leo also likes napping on the register vent.

(right before he got his stitches out)

I got a new pillow to put at the end of my bed for the dog since I moved the one I had out to the back porch for him.  Rocky was the first to try it out.

Sky does fit on it!

He just has a hard time getting it to himself.

But they all look happy. Although, it really looked crowded when Sky, Bob and Leo were all three on it. Maybe I need to find a bigger one.

Winter Is Back

30 Dec

After over an inch of rain on Saturday, which left the barnyard a muddy boot sucking mess, we are now freezing, with snow and wind and sleet.  You can see there’s a fine layer of ice on my gate.

Sky still had to accompany me outside while I did chores and wait for me by the gate.  Don’t get me wrong, he could have gone in the dog door and waited for me there, but no…

The goats tried going to pasture for about five minutes.  I did take pity on them and gave them full hay after their grain.

Cutie (I think; maybe Ava; I can’t see enough of the horns or where Ava’s black spot would be.)

Everyone has plenty to eat.  I have to make sure I have enough piles of hay that even the little girlies get to eat.

Even the llamas decided the weather was too bad to go out to pasture.

Some of the goats were eating outside.  Caroline just looks happy that she’s not in pasture eating.

Penelope, Annie, Caroline

I even gave the geese some hay to sit on and nibble on.

But one goose decided she’d rather sit in the frozen pool.

Why?  I don’t get it, but that’s a goose for you.  I swear they have rubber feet.

Anyhow, welcome back to winter!
