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!
I love my goats but I am almost to the point of murdering my buck Robby.He has taken rut season to a whole new and weird level! We let him breed Buttons and Mammy but made sure to move Lil Vicki to a different pen with her mom Olivia. Breeding 2 goats wasn't enough for him. Oh no, he has to go and try to breed Mary the sheep so we moved her. We also moved him a dozen times but he climbs the fence, jumps, the fence, rams the gate, whatever it takes to get back to the main goat pen. Tinker, the guardian dog is in season and believe it or not Robby is trying to mount her!!! We moved Robby to another pen and Tinker to a different pen and there was Robby trying to mount Bella, the Pyrenees and she isn't even in season. We move Bella out of his pen and what do I find him doing ???? Peeing on his face and trying to entice one of the hens to be his girlfriend. When I go into the pens to feed or water he rears up on his hind legs while I am around his girls. Even though he isn't in the pen with them he doesn't want me near them either. And Lord help me when I go into his pen. He wants to rub his stinky self all over me so I smell like a stinky goat all day. He also tries to block the gate to keep me from leaving. Snorts at me and then starts rubbing his head on my leg making more stink on my clothes. I have never in all the years we have had goats had such a "horny" buck! I so want to get rid of him but he is William's pet and he wants to keep him. Robby is a loving, sweet goat when he isn't in rut. This is his season to make love and you would think he had swallowed a bottle of Viagra. Something tells me its going to be a looong fall or goat hunting season will be opening soon.
