The Old Goats

8 Dec

With the colder weather, I’ve started feeding a bit of grain each evening.  My older girls haven’t been getting any, so I finally moved three of them into the yard.  You know, I hadn’t had livestock in there for about a week.  Muffin is 10 1/2, and she is really getting thin.  After her brain injury, she hasn’t had any fight, so she just stands.  I have to make sure she’s getting food.

Meg is one of my two oldest goats.  She’s healthy, but at 12 3/4, she seems to be shrinking, kind of like human old ladies do.

Then there’s Helen.  My brat.  She’s been getting medicine for her arthritis for almost a year now.  She still has a lot of spunk, and she’s in the worst physical shape of the three, but she’s the one picking on the other two.

Then, just for fun (read hay), Cutie Pie let herself back into the yard. She is fast enough she can outrun any of the three old ladies.

More likely, she is eating with Muffin and curling up with whomever she can for warmth.  Silly kid.

I do hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt tomorrow.  I have this week’s list at the top of my side bar.

Not Much in the Garden

5 Oct

The yard kids have eaten most of my garden.  There’s not even hardly any weeds left.

There are a few squash and pumpkins.  I hope they don’t eat them!

Strawberry wishes she were just a little bit taller, so she could reach a few more leaves.

I guess it’s time to start giving them a bit of hay.

I do hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have the items for this week at the top of my sidebar.

Unstoppable

17 Aug

Cutie might not have been able to figure out how to get up in the patio chair with the splint on her leg, but that didn’t stop her.  She’s on the table!  There’s a lot more room to maneuver around and get laid down.

Besides she couldn’t let Vanilla have all the fun.

She will be thrilled to get that splint off.  Only three more days!

I do hope you’ll return and join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items at the top of my sidebar.
