Pasture Happenings



Another week has went by and the sheep and goats are all out on pasture now. Almost all of the lambs have lost their tails, the kids have been disbudded and we have been milking goats.

Delaney loves spending time outside and taking pictures. She gets some pretty good shots. The girls spend so much time out in the pasture that the sheep and goats don't seem to notice them or feel as threatened by them walking around. When I go out there they always seem to scurry away. I must have ulterior motives as far as they are concerned.

The above picture is an area of pasture where there is a row of Mulberry Trees. It is the favored spot with the the sheep and goats when it gets warm.  The goats are nice enough to keep the trees trimmed up for us.




The water is receding in the pasture but there is still plenty to keep the resident geese and ducks happy. The girls are really hoping that they have babies, we will see!




I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

  2. Your daughter takes great pictures! I notice that our poultry allows me to walk among them with impunity, but when my husband comes along, they move quickly out of his way. The sheep know the girls!

    1. Sounds like my husband and the cats, they see him and they move.
