Another Day in Pasture

12 Oct

I am trying to walk more.  It’s been a rough year to try and get out and just walk and enjoy pasture, so I’m trying to do more of that.

Silly wethers–Myson and Casey

It makes me happy to climb the hill and see the herd out there.

This is the back hill that was just made into hay.

With the tiny bit cooler weather and the little rain we’ve had, it’s still growing.  That’s good.

If we don’t get early snow and ice, the goats will still be able to feed themselves off pasture until the end of the year.

That also makes my life much easier.

Time for Leftovers!

8 Oct

This week was my parent-teacher conferences at work, so I am quite excited for the weekend!  I’ve missed not being home in the evenings.  And it means I haven’t done much to blog about, so here’s just some random thoughts with leftover pictures.

Bob is still struggling with getting back to his usual cranky self. He needs to come in the house and hibernate for the winter.

I really am trying to decide who to breed and who to retire and who to give a year off.  I’m pretty sure Gidget is getting a year off or retiring.  I hope the copper I gave last weekend kicks in and helps Reva and Gidget look better.  They really need it.

These two are happy to be together again.  Other than when Astra goes to get bred, they shouldn’t have to be separated again.

I am excited because I’m soon going to be doing a couple of photo shoots.  I will get to photograph a little girl!  Wish I could get my camera replaced before then, but I guess as long as my old faithful just keeps working, I’ll call it good.

Finally, just some more of the goats out in pasture.

Zinnia is still giving me a decent amount of milk.

Happy weekend!

Kids

21 Sep

You might have noticed that I didn’t get the kids sold this weekend.  I discovered a food allergy (to my foraged chicken of the woods), and it was not a pleasant day or two.  Anyhow, I’m going to try to get them sold this weekend. We’ve heard that before, haven’t we…

I really do need to get my moms a break from kids.

Joani and Glover

Although, Zinnia still has her girl with her, but she won’t let her nurse.  I’m getting all of that milk!

Zinnia and Ivy

I’m still not sure how I’m going to catch the two older girls.

Bubbles and Missy

If my plan works, they’ll get more relaxed around me since I’m feeding them grain every day.

LilyAnn and Jasmine

That’s the plan, but we’ll see how well that works.
