Where Kizzy Went

I showed you how Kizzy squished under the fence yesterday. Well, look at this. Almost everybody went over to the big pasture.

I stayed where I belonged. So did some of us other tall, non-squishy goats.

My older girls both stayed with me. See Joe coming over to keep me company.

Annie was just so upset she didn't get to go, but there's no way that big round pregnant belly was going to get under there.

I can hardly wait until the human opens the gate and we have all lush green pasture to browse in.

If you have spring, please share it with us.

Squishy Kizzy

Kizzy went where she wasn't supposed to go. Look how she got there.













Kizzy squishes.

Evidence of Evil

If you think I'm kidding about the llama unnecessarily picking on us, look at this.





Stormy was there first. She was just eating. She's a lucky one. It was just hay coming at her.

Look what happened to Bud. Do you see the slobbers?

It kind of blends in with his fur, but look at poor Kizzy.

She met with his wrath also. Evil llama.

Why the Llama is Cranky

I know I've mentioned before that the llama here is very crabby and cranky.

He might look sweet, but trust me, he is very cranky and crabby. Well, we goats might have had something to do with that. You see, the first year we had kids, he was very nice and sweet. Our kids loved playing with him.

He kind of got tired of it.

He was very relieved when our babies grew up and moved away. Then, we had more babies the next year and the human brought Ozzy to live with us. Isn't Ozzy handsome?

Well, Ozzy was a big good-natured fellow, but he didn't pick up social cues very well. He liked the llama and thought the llama was being nice to scratch between his horns. Maybe Ozzy just couldn't see how flat those llama ears were.

He just wanted to play.

Our kids just wanted to play. See, it really is the llama being cranky.

Thinking Baby

I keep seeing everyone else in Blogland having babies arrive.

I can hardly wait for ours to get here.

For now, I'll have to look at the pictures of last year's kids.

It won't be long until I hear the little cry of maaaa and hear the pitter patter of little hooves in the barnyard.

Really, I'm not going to be jealous.

I hope...

A Bigger Black Lump

Yep! This past weekend was certainly the time to lie in the sun and enjoy it. Even the ox was flopped out.

Now we're back to cold and snowy.

Is Dana Dead?

Look at how Dana was all laid out.

Is she dead?

Her sister, Dixie, had to come check it out. She was very concerned to see her twin like this.

Nope! Just sleeping in the sun (yesterday because today is crappy weather)!

"What? I was not worried about her at all. Really, I wasn't."

Dry Pasture

If you've seen some of my last posts, you've seen lots of mud in the barnyard. We had to stand on the picnic table, and then we still had mud between our toes.

Today the snow had all melted in the pasture, and we went out there.

Look at the dry grass.

It was so nice--a very nice day for a walk out to pasture.

It was a bit breezy. See Meg's beard blowing in the wind.

It was a very nice sunny day.

We did enjoy ourselves out there today.

Tomorrow it's supposed to rain again, but today was wonderful!
