I woke up to see...

Goats in the front yard! This has become a common occurance. I had to put the 5 doelings in a barn with a closed off yard because they are small and pesky when they come in the shop WHILE I am working and chew on my hair, my pockets, my drill bit (imagine the startled reaction when I made it go!) So they got out last night because they are goats. This morning, they were all (5 little doelings) out with Nona, Pepsi and Arizona (pictured). I got everyone in but Ari who wasnt interested and she hung with the cat, me and my coffee for a bit.

I had every intention of trimming up this area anyways, so she is helping me out! Thanks Ar...

Now if she would only stomp the cat (who poops in the window sill outside unless we let her in then she poops in the bathtub!), I would agree to NEVER sell her or butcher her. The others, well we are going to butcher them bc they have made me ANGRY breaking out. Oh wait... I am a vegetarian.


What is this bug? Does anyone know? This picture is turned upside down, you can see the ceiling. This is the underside of something I was working on and tried to move it and discovered this guy!


The 2nd picture here is blurry but I have only 1 so I posted it anyways. This is a new rooster and little hens that the local goat herder gave us bc she had too many littles. So these are here in our sick chick's cage (sick chick died...). At any rate, they are here while waiting on new and bigger domicile which I am building. The rooster is of course a rooster, so this seems like odd behaviour. He is letting them hang under his feathers and he settles down around them protective like. There are 3 little hens under him!

So thats my morning so far, I have been up since 6 doing chores, hanging with the goats, cleaning barns, working on a mower (the mower guy fixed my mower but yesterday it quit working again so he stopped by this am at 8 to see it and it works now), photo-ing chicken and goat people and drinking coffee.

John says he's happy to off evil for you but only after he finds and offs the skunk(s).

LOL! I think the skunks would be WORSE without our fierce guard cat! Furthermore, I dont notice the skunk smell at all. Matter off fact, I havent smelled one in days though that doesnt mean I dont have them around! I am just getting used to the "farm" scent...
