Wether Problems

Jilly was have problems with the wether.

Osmo seemed to be fascinated with Jilly's horns.

She didn't appreciate it, and told him to knock it off.

He didn't get the hint.

He was even trying to taste it!

Why do you think he found her horns so interesting?

Silly Osmo.

She did her best to ignore him and hope he'd go away.

Can you tell how much she wanted to poke him with those horns?

Whatever will we do with that Osmo?

A Scary Evening

I am here to maa to you that we were very worried yesterday. The human didn't bring us our dinner. It was getting dark.

Flower and Bud were maaing like they always do (it's the Nubian in them). Still she didn't come.

Not even when Bud went right to the gate to maa.

Casey and Cookie thought they were going to starve!

Bambi and I were very worried, since we're both expecting kids, dinner is very important to us.

Betty Lou was getting ready to storm the house and demand to know what was going on.

Then the boy came and the human's nephew, and they gave us our dinner. They said the human was sick, and that's why dinner was late and I couldn't do my blog post yesterday. At least we got to fill our tummies, and Meg was ready to nap.

Luckily, the human is better. She better be. We need our dinner on time!

A Muddy Mess

We goat really dislike mud, and we stay inside as much as possible.

The geese have those rubber webbed feet, so they don't mind the mud. They actually like to play in it~silly things.

This poor chicken~

I don't think I'd go out in the mud with those fancy feathered feet.

He doesn't look to happy with it either.

Silly chickens!

The Weather is Confused

We had snow. The barnyard looked like this with all the geese webbed feet tracks.

Today it looks like this.

This warm weather has Muffin confused too. Do you see what is on her horns?

She's losing her undercoat!

I tried telling her that she's going to regret shedding so soon, but she doesn't listen to me.

I have to admit it is tempting because our snow is disappearing.

Linking to Deborah Jean's Farmgirl Friday.

An Epic Fight (The Finale)

After Vixen and Lotus fought all around the barnyard, the fight was taken into the barn.

By this time, Cutie was getting a bit tired of all this fighting too.

But Lotus was relentless. Vixen wasn't about to back down! (She inherited that from her maa.)

Everyone else was getting tired of this fighting too.

Guess who finally said, "That's enough!" after the fight went right through the middle of his pile of hay.

The llama. He might be cranky, but he knows that fighting isn't good during dinner time.

Finally, everyone settled down to eat, and everyone is getting along so well now. Everything is back to normal.

Except Cutie is still giving the human the goat stare of death for bringing Vixen to this side right during dinner time.

The Fight Continues

Well, I was telling you about the Epic Fight that started with Lotus challenging Vixen when she joined our side of the barnyard.

Cutie wasn't too happy with her little kid being picked on. That plucky little mini-goat just kept it up.

Vixen's big sister, Pam, decided she'd better join in. After all, family is family.

She came to her sister's aid, and Lotus didn't back down one little bit. Of course, Cutie kept a very close eye on both of her babies.

Pam suddenly remembered that she shouldn't be fighting because she's pregnant.

Not to mention she really needed to go eat.

Tomorrow~the conclusion.

An Epic Fight (Part I)

The human brought Vixen back into my side of the barnyard so she could be with her maa, Cutie. We could hear her being drug, kicking and screaming, through the chicken pen. When Vixen saw us through the door, she was very excited and ran to her maa.

Her maa wasn't too thrilled. She's decided it's nice having a more mature daughter like Pam around. So Cutie said, "Get out from my pile of hay and go eat somewhere else."

Well, before long, someone started a fight. You know it's going to happen, even though Vixen had only been with the boy for three weeks.

It was quite the battle. It started outside between the two of them. It was strangely an uneven match. Vixen is as much a princess as her older sister was, and Lotus was pushing her around.

Then it grew even larger! Opal joined Lotus and they were tag-teaming poor Vixen.

That was enough for Cutie's maa instincts to kick in.

She told Lotus to leave her kid alone.

But this fight is far from over. You'll have to come back to see who else got involved.
