It’s Thursday!

And most of the day it was looking very grey and misty. Around 1 pm the sun really began to take over, and by the time I got home it was fabulously warm out. Fabulously black-fly infested as well! But it’s so lovely to be able to open the windows and enjoy the air that I really don’t mind.

The goat babies are getting to be a rambunctious group, either in action every minute or else nestled up in the feed troughs near their mamas, and as cozy as they can be. I really have to create a creep for them this weekend, they need their own feed now as they are growing so fast (a creep is an area penned off from the mothers with an opening that only the little ones can get through). They all belly up to the  trough and get into the grain along with the adults, but the moms don’t give them much of a chance! The other item on the agenda is CDT shots for the second bunch of kids. And maybe I will have some time to just sit on the rock and enjoy the playtime as well, if the rain isn’t too persistent.

  1. Yes, she seems to be doing well, although she still doesn’t eat quite as much as the others. Still keeping my eye on her.
