    House cleaning...

    Daily chores can be rough on someone that has allergies... Rascal helped dad clean the goat house today so they both had to wear dust masks.. It wasn't that bad but Rascal kept wanting to eat his.... The house is clean of soiled hay and Rascal got extra cookies for being such a big help

    Goats and backyard pools.

    LOL yes they don't speak to us for about an hour after each session. Even cookies aren't a draw at that time so we just let them be and enjoy watching them wander around our yard until it's time for them to go to bed. Little Buttons is the only one who doesn't mind the water and will actually...

    Goats and backyard pools.

    They are NDs about 30 pounds so not too hard to handle. That's why we are doing it now.. I have videos of all three getting their "wet" on but can't post them here.

    Goats and backyard pools.

    Ron and I believe in pool proofing our animals.. All of them. We want everyone safe in our back yard. We go about it slowly and one animal at a time. They are carried into the pool and then turned in the proper direction and are let loose to swim their way out. They aren't always willing...

    Buttons....

    All of our goats are wethers. The oldest one (Rascal) is 6 1/2 months old. Shawn Patrick is 4 months old and Buttons is 12 days younger than Shawn Patrick, so he's three and a half months. We filter their water every day because our water is high in calcium. They are given goat pellets with...

    Buttons....

    He is only three ad a half months old and we are worried about giving him grain due to the UC. Our vet said NO GRAIN at all for a wether at his age. Once he's a year old he can eat what he wants according to the vet...This Replemin is supposed to do everything to increase his body's needs. at...

    Buttons....

    Our little Buttons has had a time of things lately. We check FAMANCHA at least once a week and his has been pale for two weeks now. I've given him Vitamin B Complex, Red Cell and something called Replens which is a vitamin and mineral paste. He had a high worm load and coccidia so we vetted...

    My loveable Irishman..

    Happy St. Patrick's Day to all my "Irish" friends. I have a real Irishman here and he is making me the traditional St. Patrick's Day dinner the old fashioned Irish way. He's a sweetie to share this yummy dinner with me. I'm flattered that I can become an Irishman for at least one day Éire go...

    Ronny the dumpster diver!

    It's wonderful if you can use what you pick up. He's gotten room rugs, fence gates, wood paneling, lots of flooring, wooden spools, lumber, a christmas tree we still use just all kinds of stuff. Including the lazy boy chair that I still use in the house... The man is a genius!

    Ronny the dumpster diver!

    Since we have been together Ronny has always wanted to stop at a pile of junk on the side of the road just in case there is something in there he can use. To me junk is junk and you leave it where it is. To him it's a treasure waiting to be found. Yesterday we were headed out to do some...

    Another trip to the vet....

    We gave Buttons his coccidia prevention meds on Wednesday last week. He spends some time in the house because he's a good boy and doesn't pee or poo in the house. Well he was walking around the living room and OMG he has these worms hanging out of his bum....We cleaned him up and I sent Ron...

    Goat Hoof Trimming

    LOL, yes they do kick. But I make Hubby hold them upright so their spine is to his chest and just have him hold the leg I'm working on by the thigh. That way they don't have the same range of movement if the leg was completely free. That way nobody gets hurt... Works like a charm with two...

    Not much happening here

    Oh I'd love to have a herd but we live in a subdivision and not in the country. We're pushing it by having our three. They are all wethers so no kids will be born here...

    Not much happening here

    We've just been hanging out lately, Not much going on except the goats are making us laugh every day and that's a good thing. Rascal remains a rascal and is always crying for cookies (spoiled children, what can you do???) Shawn Patrick and Buttons have become fast friends just as I predicted...
