She Called me Greedy

I can't believe that human! She called me greedy.

Did she not think I'd see her blog or my loyal readers would rat her out?

I'm not greedy.

It's just that I'm very hungry.

Bambi didn't really want the bread anyhow.

After all, I'm eating for two.

So there.

It certainly looks like these four were spoiled by someone~Claire~before they came to live with us.
I thought they were going to try to climb through the little holes in the fence to get to that food.

You'd think they weren't getting fed around here.

They certainly don't look like they're starving.

What's that silly human doing giving them treats?

Where's my treat?

A Basking Day

Today was just wonderful for lounging around and basking in the sun. Don't tell my Joe, but she kind of looks dead and bloated. I think the human might need to put her on a diet.

Our magnificent herd queen, Minnie, was basking in all her glory.

Bud decided that he could get the coveted manger spot since everyone else was outside.

Meg figured she had the best of both the indoors and outside in her place under the quonset hut.

Even the young boys (Hickory and Fionn) were enjoying the sunshine.

Me. I preferred to stay in the barn and play my horns.

This door frame is perfect for tapping out a nice soft tune.

How did you spend your day?

Baby Names

Boeris has been here for a few weeks now, and the human finally figured out his last name. It's very important to know his last name because all of his babies will have his last name.

Anyhow, when the human pulled her car in the drive and got out, she heard an awful noise. She hollered, "Is someone stuck?" She was answered with that same horrible yell. She came running in to see who was stuck, injured or letting out death cries. She discovered Boeris yelling his love songs to Litha. That's when she knew his full name was Boeris van de Yell.

That means Bambi Blackboer's baby will have the last name of van de Yell.

Pam will have van de Yell babies too.

What about that~Boeris van de Yell! Now I feel like we've been formally introduced.

Behind Fences

We're behind fences again.

You see the burrs in my beard. The human isn't even nice enough to take them out for me.

We accidentally found ourselves in the neighbor's combined corn field. The human said we were lucky we didn't kill ourselves.

Just a little upset tummy for some, but now we're all stuck in here. Big goats.

Little goats. Everyone is locked in.

All we can do is stand and stare out to pasture and wish we were there.

I wish I were out there eating green grass and leafy shrubs and ...

Another Costume

I just want to eat my dinner quietly.

Does this look like eating a nice meal?

How much more of this do I have to endure?

Isn't Halloween over yet?

No Respect for the Expecting

Really? Can you believe that human did this to me?

Torture Bud, not me.

I guess I should be glad I didn't have a hat hanging off my ear like Minnie.

Then I'm just going to hide here until you go away.

Oh, fine. See.

This is just silly.

Put it on Lotus. She deserves it.

I can't believe she's making me do this. Torment Coral, not me.

After all, I'm expecting.

A Major Announcement

The kid seems to be out of the bag, so I have a major announcement. I am expecting a Marley baby on March 2, 2012.

The human isn't happy with Marley and me (mostly Marley), but I convinced her that I am a milking nanny. I don't want to be retired. I'm healthy, and the vet gave her reassurances that I'd be fine.

Where Bambi Is

Bambi is not on the same side of the fence as me. (She didn't even get out; the human put her there.)

She's with Boeris!

If all goes well, I'll be a grandnanny again in March.

Goodness, I'm getting too old for this.

Freedom Again!

The human kept us locked up, but she felt bad.

She said she hobbled the fence together because she knew we'd be happier and healthier if we got to be out in pasture.

She let us go out tonight. It felt so nice to be running and stretching our legs!

It's also nice to be able to drink some water from the little pool.

It's not full of goose sludge. We don't like goose sludge. Ick! But this water is really good.

She made us promise to stay on our side of the fence, and we did.

I'm sharing this with Farmgirl Friday and Farm Friend Friday.
