My girls love a good creek..
Even though they had just gotten out of the pool
at Nana and Grampie's House
They wanted to get in so bad.
But it was just a quick stop..
Tree at the creek..
Sunshine and April enjoying the sun....
Their new "spot".. They sleep out here now
Unless of course its raining or they have gotten spooked.
I made granola for the first time.
It was a success.. Good Stuff!
The weather is warming up For Sure!!! It so humid right now you can stand in the shade and sweat!
We are up in the 80's all week with few chances of rain. They did say no but now they have put slight chances in there!.... Its still so muddy the goats are hopping to the barn! Trying to avoid the mud... It doesn't work though. They come in with mud almost up to their knees. I was afraid I may lose my little chickens if they fell in it!lol Despite boots and trying to dig some sort of ditch to drain it off. Its still extremely wet.
Hopefully it will dry up some this week. Its made the gnats and flies horrible. I have never had mud or bugs this bad... I hate to spray anything but at this point its Very uncomfortable to milk or even be in the barn. I have hung up Fly tapes I am hanging 6-8 tapes a day sometimes and every morning they are full.
So any suggestions???
Kyle goes back to work tomorrow YEAH!!.... It was just 2 weeks this time which was great. He did get the fence done and more work on his big truck done.. The goats are enjoying being out! They spend most of their time under the tree on the rocks. Go out to graze and back to laze around under the trees... Hay consumption has went down and so has the grain. Hay went from 1 bale a day to a half a bale. The boys get a half bale every other day. Sometime ever day if they eat it all. I have grain left over now when I milk and at night they were leaving a little so I kept scaling back till they weren't leaving any to waste.
This is a good thing!!
I have been making Chevre on a regular basis and I have quite a bit in the freezer.. I have ignored yogurt for a while so I don't have to think about it right now.. But I will get back to it.. figure out what i am doing wrong.. The last one didn't taste right at all..
Good Night Everyone!
