Spring, finally!

Feeding frenzy

And today is an out of the ordinary one for Maine.  85 F here this afternoon, although we have a nice breeze so the bugs are not too big a problem.

Love Betsy in this photo, talking a mile a minute with her mouth full of hay!

The babies are growing like hotcakes, and the scrum around the feeder is incredible in the morning.  We can barely get the hay in there before 3 or 4 not-so-little ones are jumping on and in.  It’s nutty, but they are so much fun at this age.  Everyone has cleared 35 lbs so far, and we are nearly ready to send some of our sweet ones out into the world with new families.  Almost empty nest :*)

And so it goes.  I will have to do a separate post to update my weaving apprenticeship.  I have been very busy with that and have a lot of photos to share.  Nothing earth shattering that any of you weavers out there couldn’t throw together in a jiffy, but the experimentation is teaching me a lot.   And I am having a great time with it!

  1. Wow, it has taken my human twins six or seven years to get to forty pounds! 🙂 glad you are having fun weaving and learning lots, too…

  2. Not so much being a ‘goat girl’ but a ‘chicken lady’, I’m uncertain as to what the term “scrum around the feeder” means. Need a little help here… Thanks!

  3. Scrum is a kind a knot of people or animals all trying to get to the same thing at the same time. Or at least that’s how I have always understood it !
