Happy Days Are Here Again!

Buttons, Hayley, Blackie, Precious, Gerda, and Little D are very happy (and so am I). The last 19 goats I have been taking care of since December have gone to a new home!! My girls have their home back and seem to be very relaxed and content. Feeding this afternoon was fantastic! No shoving,stepping on feet, head butting or any other bad manner act. The girls each went to their own feeder and took their time savoring each bite. Usually its like going into a boxing ring trying to feed grain. Did I tell you the girls and I are very happy??? As for the boys pen, Andy and Petro have it all to themselves. Trouble, Cotton, Cotton Jr, Oreo, Thor, and Mini Me went with the others to their new home. After tomorrow when Susie and her piglets go to their new home things will be back to a nice, happy, normal around here. Feedings will be easier and quicker and my sweeties can get lots more loving. Poor Bella and Tinker aren't sure what happened to all the goats they have been guarding but seem very happy to have Hillary and Snowball gone. Those two always rammed Bella and Tinker when they weren't looking. Knocking the breath out of them. Yep, things are happy and content around the homestead. Now if we could just do something about those dang acorns! Don't forget to count those blessings... no matter how small.

What a relief! I remember when we finally sold (or ate) all our extra goat kids....it was like a weight off my shoulders....so quiet, so peaceful! Glad your morning feedings are something to look forward to now.

Glad to hear the goats took a boat across the moat. Maybe they should've loaded their coat with acorns. ;)

You're weather is coming. Not mine. But, it's only a couple months. lol

We are definitely looking forward to a more peaceful time when the lambs and kids go to camp. Oh, I hate to say it but I'm actually looking forward to it in a way. We had our first frost last night and I'm sending cooler temps down to you. Happy Fall.
