BOYS and an update on Emily!

So first off Emily is doing well! She has come into her milk and is already up to a half gallon a day. It will continue to go up gradually over the next 6 weeks.. Or that is the general rule.. She is recovering from the miscarriage. About broke your heart her searching for her babies.. But in spite of it all she is thriving and doing okay.I used a combination of  Natural and Conventional methods to get her through this and it is working.. 


So on to the boys.. 
This their Rock Barn.. 2 years ago.. 
It needs some work.. But is keeping them dry and warm for now..
Even with 2 holes in the roof...

This is the temporary door...A pallet..
With left over electric fence wire and orange baling twine to hold it in place.
Hillbilly rigging at its finest!..
Notice the hole to the side.. Thats new.....

Not sure WHO the culprit is..... 

But Squirt the wether is blaming it on Zeke....

Because Both wethers are COMPLETELY innocent... They are still getting locked up at night because they insist on sleeping down by the girl's barn....when its 10* outside.. Not happening.. They get locked up at dark with warm water, nice hay and a little bit of oats and still have the nerve to complain...

Poor Emily, animals are so much smarter than most give them credit for. She is lucky to be in your capable hands during this time.

I'm so glad to hear Emily is doing well! Boys are soooo funny! I'd probably be locking the goofy guys in, too!

Glad to hear that Em is doing well. I LOVE that rock barn! I would use that as a milkroom just because it looks SO cool!
