    Ragdollcatlady's Just a Little Patch of Weeds Farm journal

    So, I currently have 3 kittens in my care. The first one, Scribbles, I accidentally caught in a trap I set for the evil feral toms that attack Ladybug (my resident rodent hunting cat). The next one was brought into my job by a coworker on her day off. Her dog was going nuts jumping at...

    Been gone awhile... just busy, got a few stories to share.... where to start? How about another embarrassing one? Those are usually good right? K, so Dusty Roads (my mostly trusty, 20 year old Dodge Durango) was acting up and needed to see the doc. Great news is that my shop from the town...

    Advice needed on keeping dairy and meat goats together

    That would be easiest. But try whatever makes the most sense and adjust from there. I dont seem to keep the same pens or systems in place for any given year. I am always changing to make things easier for me, easier for the goats... you might try a "creep feed" area. Make an adjacent pen to your...

    Advice needed on keeping dairy and meat goats together

    Also, in case you weren't aware.... goats are the naughty children of the animal world.... You might want to tune up your patience and sense of humor.... and maybe your fence fixing skills, before you bring your wonderful new friends home.... Welcome to the wacky world of goat addiction! ;)

    Advice needed on keeping dairy and meat goats together

    I have both, mostly raised together. I started with dairy goats (nigerians) and feel like I have the management for dairy goats down pretty well. It has taken me some time to realize that my meat goats do have drastically different needs as far as feeding and maintenance. I am looking to...

    Raised goats for years. No idea what this is??

    I had an issue this year with one of my babies. He was maybe in the 5 month old range when I noticed he was holding cud in his mouth for extended periods. He wasn't gaining weight like his brother or others in the same pen. His cud was fresh, and he was always willing to eat, but he obviously...

    Custom designed just for me.... Its a fenceline feeder for my goats! I am so excited! I probably need about 3 more... but I get to try it out tomorrow. I got it installed in the part of the fence that needed to be cut out due to rusting through the cattle panel. And he gave me this as a...

    Thanks, I am beyond grateful that my kid is OK. He was apologizing for making my day harder when we were driving to the ER, an hour away. I don't care about a hard day, or how scared I was for the few minutes before I saw with my own eyes, that he really was OK, I just care that he is alright. I...

    Soooo... I had a day yesterday. My truck was almost done, but still in the shop and while I was at work I got the "hey mom, Im ok but... " call. My kid was on his bike riding home from work when he was clipped by a truck and trailer. I borrowed a coworkers car and took him to the ER to get...

    Thank you. I am so excited to finally have a finished bedroom. It might be hard to tell, the color on my computer screen seems to have mutted both the wall color and the colors in the bedding. The wall is a really pale pink and the bedding is mostly a cream background with rich green, deep...

    No I didn't have triple A. I do now... I haven't needed a tow in a bit. Since I am in charge of my own vehicle maintenance and upkeep, I have way less issues... I know it seems like I still have her in the shop fairly often, (she is 20 years old) but I have the ability to stop what I am doing...

    Thanks! I took Karma with me to give her a little more exposure, more experiences, see as many different people as we can, all things considered. I didn't intend for her to meet a tow guy or to ride alone in the Durango on the flatbed while I was in the tow truck, but he wasn't even supposed to...

    Sorry Ive been gone... busy and stressed. Coworkers are being terrible, clients are being rude. Squirrels are tearing up my fencing, Heat is making me cranky. You know. Just life. I was on my way to pick up my baby goat this morning, then to visit grandma and wish her a happy birthday, then...

    Karma made a new friend! The last time I took her to TSC I realized I had been slacking about getting her out in public, she nervously barked at a lady that wanted to say hi to her. I respect if Karma doesn't want to greet somebody, but her nervousness concerned me. Last week she had a bit of...
