Many baby goat adventures & my first hike out with Scout & Sonic! Should be fun!https://youtu.be/5epmrJQSHhk See you on Sunday, the usual time! (Or maybe a bit later …)-Phil
We were so busy with poor little Butterfly that I never made time to introduce Rita’s wonderful little kidlets, Zelda and Sonic. In fact, for their first week I hardly got to know them myself! I quickly realized that these little babies were skittish and would run from Phil and I when we approached. That’s … Continue reading Zelda and Sonic
There’s a reason I often look at Finn and say, “Funny funny Finn-Finn!” Finn is a clown and a show-off, and he’s the ultimate “Hold my beer!” goat. Finn is always fun to watch, but today he was in rare form! I drove from town with a load of water and groceries and the goats were all jumping … Continue reading Funny Funny Finn-Finn
Ever since we took a vacation with Phil’s family to South Dakota in July 2020, I have been longing to go back–this time with goats! It seemed like a fantastic destination for goatpacking, so on a warm, sunny day in September we headed north with our FOUR packgoat boys. Yes, you read that right! Finn … Continue reading It’s a South Dakota Goat Vacation: On the Way!
What’s all this?? It appears that a Loch Ness Monster moved into our lawn!! I saw this guy advertised for $100 in the Pueblo classifieds and I couldn’t resist. Saturday was me and Phil’s 22nd wedding anniversary and we decided to make a day of it and get ourselves an anniversary present. We drove out … Continue reading It swam into our yard…
We had another perfect kidding today! Skeeter went into labor around 2:00, which was the nicest part of the day, and she popped those kids out in textbook form. The only help Phil and I had to give was to cheer her on! She kidded two healthy, strong, and beautifully marked girls! Sticking with the … Continue reading Treasure!!
I took the new kids out for a little playtime in the fresh grass yesterday. It was a cold, but since the forecast said it would get colder during the weekend I figured I’d better get them out for some fresh air and what little sunshine we had. We still haven’t named them, but we’re … Continue reading “That’s My Boy!”
I have done an absolutely dreadful job of keeping this blog up-to-date this summer and to my faithful readers I do apologize. It’s been an exciting summer and we’ve enjoyed these nine kids very much, but I did not get as many photographs as I usually do. In fact, most of them will fit right … Continue reading Summer Daze
I have been very remiss in my blogging duties this summer. Our local saddle club has been going gangbusters since mid-May and when I’m not doing horsey things I’ve preferred to spend my time hanging out with the little kidlets and enjoying their company and watching them grow and play rather than taking pictures of … Continue reading Their biggest fans…
We ended up naming Coral’s kids Skipper and Scout. It took a couple of days for Skipper’s ears to figure out which way to go. Right ear up, left ear down. Right ear down, left ear up. Right ear up, left ear down. Right ear down, left ear up. Are we ever going to figure … Continue reading Skipper and Scout
