Bear And The Goats
Saturday was a nice day. It was going to rain but it held off for a while so I went outside to take pictures of the goats and Bear.
Peeper is doing well outside with the other goats, but Bear still thinks he’s a chew toy.
There’s a small barn on the hill where the goats graze, but the smaller goats could get underneath it and that freaked me out, plus Pisnak would rub his scurs and he was wrecking the shed.
So we had to put wire around it. I feel safer now. Well I think the goats feel safer now anyway.
Maggie and Azelle are both due in mid-March, by looking at them you’d think that Azelle is due today and Maggie not even bred. The funny thing is that Maggie is due a few days before Azelle. But I find that Azelle carries wide and Maggie carries low.
We’ll have to wait and see!
Well, part of my plan for this spring is already starting.
Tomorrow Dave is going to pick up our two bull calves!
It’s a bit earlier than what I expected, but they’ll just be bigger by the end of fall.
I’ll post pics when we get them.
Have a Blessed Evening.
