Hi everyone! I bet you thought I fell off of the face of the Earth. Nope, still here. We are just extremely busy!!!!The last time I posted on here, I was telling you about the new goat we were given. Well, she didn't work out. She was extremely mean to our two younger ones. Plus, with us just having a small place for them to get in out of the weather, she wouldn't let them in. They were sleeping outside in the rain. I wasn't going to have that. So we ended up giving her to Hubby's dad. He seemed like he was happy about that. I think he missed seeing goats in his field since we FINALLY brought our goats home. Yea!!!! Now you guys will be bombarded with cute little goat pictures. hehehehehe.
They seem to be really happy here. But, getting them here was another story. lol. It took 5 of us to corner and tackle the poor little things. They hadn't been touched since they were bought. That was back in May. They were wild as bucks. hehehe. Once they got here though, they are starting to come around. They aren't scared of us now.
Now to the cows....They are starting to have their babies. Yes, I know that it is late in the year for calves, but, we keep our bull in with the cows. We seem to lose less breeding opportunities that way. We have such good momma cows, they take really go care of the babies. Plus, the babies are born already wearing their winter coats. lol.
Now to the horse....We had to give away one of our horses. Scout, the young one. He had developed a bad habit of chasing the cows. I don't mean pushing them out of his way. I mean he would run one until it couldn't run anymore. Then when we started getting babies, he started running them. We are NOT going to put up with that. We didn't have a place to separate him from the cattle, so we decided to give him to someone who would love him and take good care of him. Plus, now he will get more of a chance to be ridden. We just don't ride as much as we use to. We hated to get rid of him, but we think it's for the best.
Oh, and for all of you who keep asking for pictures of the house, here is some before and after pictures of the bed room. Before.....
Not much to work with here, but it is home. I am happy. More pictures to come! Especially now that I found my camera cord. hehehehehe.
So until next time,
