Animal Updates Week

Since it's been so long since I've blogged about any of the animals (due to unforeseen cirumstances sheer laziness), I figured I'd dedicate a whole week to the animals.

We'll start with goats because that's the most logical thing. I'm not sure why that is, it just is.
Here we have Theo (L) and June (R) munching on some hay I just gave them. I should have taken pictures before the hay, because well, that's really all they care about. Eating.


I dried June off at the beginning of the month, and I have to say I don't miss milking. I do miss the milk though! March will come soon enough, so I'm not rushing it.


Theo had to get a little closer to the hay. I'm really surprised he just didn't lay down in the middle of the pile and eat. I thought about selling Theo, and I placed several ads with varying degrees of responses (mostly scammers and some that wanted meat, which normally wouldn't bother me), and not too long ago I got an email from the lady that bought June's doe kids this spring. She's interested in keeping him at her farm, and using him as a stud in return for his room and board. I'd still own him and I would use him to breed June. I was so excited to work out this agreement! It's a pain in the butt having Oberhaslis sometimes, because not many people own them. It's hard for me to find a buck, and it was proving hard to sell one as well. Theo will be leaving sometime this month to go to his new digs.



Yes, Theo. You're going to live on a beautiful farm with lush green grass and lots of goatie friends.


June doesn't really care one way or another, as long as she still gets her hay.

Goats are such fun!! I am tickled that you worked out such a good arrangement for Theo! I would hate to think of him on a dinner table, too! Give June a kiss for me! Love, Momma
