On August 12th, Yeti and Thor went to their new home in Cheyenne, WY. They went to a lovely family that will be training them as packgoats and I know they will be very happy and well cared-for. But we will certainly miss them nonetheless. Phil and I took them on a final walk the … Continue reading Goodbye, Yeti and Thor!
Phil and I took Thor and Yeti out for their first hike the other day, and it was a big hit! The boys had a great time exploring, jumping on rocks, and nibbling new things they don’t get to eat at home. Thor is very photogenic. He has beautiful markings on his face and that … Continue reading Thor and Yeti’s Big Day
When I got her she was an ethereal beauty and so I named her “Stardust”. Turns out she is more “earthy” than ethereal so now I call her “Dusty”. Also, she’s half Arabian, half Paint Horse. The first photo is of the Arabian half and the second photo is of the Paint Horse half. In … Continue reading Then and Now
Butterfly spent most of Thursday and Friday last week in the house with me. She couldn’t stand up without help and she usually laid with her hind legs stretched out. Despite being largely immobile, she nevertheless kept up a keen interest in everything around her. And is that not the sweetest little face? Movies on … Continue reading One Day at a Time
This was the 67th anniversary of the Beulah Yule Log Festival, and our 7th time attending. As usual, Phil and I dressed up as Santa and Helper Elf for the Beulah parade of lights the night before the Yule Log. We were thankful to have help decorating the carriage from our friends Bob and Alane … Continue reading 2019 Beulah Parade and Yule Log – A Goat-O-Rama Tradition!

Cutting, hauling, splitting, and stacking firewood usually looms large in November. But this year was different. I spent a brief but fun weekend in Massachusetts with my in-laws. They … Continue reading A Whirl of Changes
It’s been so busy around here that I’m afraid I haven’t been a very good blogger. Day 11 was our last day of “goat vacation.” We packed up and headed out of Escalante the next morning. We had a beautiful drive over the Utah mountains. A pinkish haze drifted across them from some distant wildfire. … Continue reading Fall Fell… Where was I?
I woke up Sunday morning with visions of an idyllic camp breakfast dancing in my brain. I had found a pancake mix that only required water and I’d measured out the right amount for our trip. I mixed up the batter, lit the fidgety little camp stove, and melted butter in the tiny frying pan. … Continue reading 8th Annual Hassey “Goat Vacation” – Utah: Day 8 or “Lost in Death Hollow”
I’m finally catching up to June! One Sunday afternoon, Phil and I sat on rocks so the baby goats could climb on us and fight over our laps. What a riot! I think Pluto is egging Buster Brown on. “Get Phil! Get Phil!” “Not the hat!” Yeti wants in on the action. It was sometime … Continue reading A Jolly Jump on June
It’s July and I’m still posting photos from May. I need to get with the program! The weather in May was cold, wet, and magnificent. Since little Mocha is the smallest of TinCup’s triplets, we like to make sure she gets her share of the milk two times a day. I’m looking at these photos … Continue reading May We Continue
