I seem to have a case of it lately...
I start a blog and cant finish it.. Or cant even get started..
I have even taken pics of different things to blog about..
So any here is Lucian not sure he wants to follow Ethel.
There are other goat girls locked up and he doesn't want to leave them!
He has started to chill out and not stink so bad!lol
April with Kate hiding behind her..
They are 2 of the girls in confinement till Lucian goes home.
Hope and Mariah sharing breakfast.
2 seconds after the pic Hope knocked Mariah away!Lol
Moses and Calico Jack..
*Please ignore the Very Temporary shelter!
Its just till Lucian leaves...
Moses trying to sweet talk!lol
Lucian and the 7 does out in the main pasture.
Everyone is getting their winter coats and the chickens are just about done moulting.. Looks like something got a hold of a few because of the feathers every where! We are getting about 6-9 eggs a day. My young hens started laying about the time the old ones went into moult. So we have not been with out eggs hardly at all!
Milk is another story... I am milking 2 does right now Sunshine and Mariah. I am getting a little over a half a gallon from both. Everyone else has dried up! I was going to milk April through this year but she started having trouble after the buck chased her to much one night. She is older and has been bred every year since she was a yearling. I think its time for a break for her. I don't believe in breeding my animals every year just because it may make me a little more $$. If the doe gets run down health-wise from over breeding then its going to cost me more if I have to give her meds and such to get her healthy. Not to mention the time..
I figured out a solution!
The problem was the goats kept stepping in the feed pans.
They would flip them and spill their grain!
Wasting alot of feed....
So I nailed the feed pans to pallets.
I can still flip them over if
I need to empty them out but they cant flip them anymore.
This is Moses and Jack's feed pans.
And this is the main herd's feed pans.
I will probably have to add another pallet with feed pans,
when April and the 3 little girls go back in so every one gets their fair share!
Okay for not having much to blog about I seem to have come up with a decent blog entry and finished it!. I hope everyone has a good night!..
