A couple in their 60's, a 1940's army building turned into a 3 bedroom cottage, 2.5 acres, vegetable and herbal gardens, goats, chickens, ducks, geese, rabbits, Great Pyrenees, rescue dogs and cats, living as simple and frugal as possible. That is what you will find written about here. Thank you for stopping by. Share anything you like and ask any questions you wish!
This is Bonnie. She is a dwarf goat that has been staying here until she kidded. Well she had a beautiful black buckling with a white star on his head that I named David. He was born 4 days ago and from the time he was a couple hours old he was trouble for his mom and me thus the name change to Trouble. He loves to wander off and find a place to nap. He naps so hard he doesn't hear his mom calling for him so she gets upset and starts running everywhere crying. I hear her crying and go look for her baby. The first day I found him in the doghouse, then he went thru the fence and took a nap in a black garden pot. He is black, garden pot was black so that took a lot of time to find him. The next day found him under the dog house, in the turkey pen (haven't figured out how he got in there as it has chicken wire he can't squeeze thru), and back in the garden pot. Since then he has been in the hay barn, under the feeding table, inside a 5 gallon bucket or his favorite under the wheelbarrel.
I have spent most of my time finding him for Bonnie. We talked about putting a bell on him but the problem is he finds a spot to nap and doesn't move nor answer his mom when she is calling for him. When he goes home in a few days he is going to have tons more places to find to nap. Going to be one upset Bonnie until Troubles gets a little bigger and can't go thru the fence.
