More Pics

I spent some time outside yesterday after doing the normal feeding and watering.  I moved the sheep and goat fence so they had a new area to graze.  I also took some pictures of all of the babies around the place.  

The pig loved her treat of a too-ripe banana.  She's 9 weeks old now (born on Feb 3rd). 

The lambs are just about 5 weeks old now (born on Feb 27) and getting cuter by the day. 

This guy below is my favorite of the two  He's got darker points, and look at his cute little "mutton chop" facial hair. 

The goats are hard to photograph, since they never ever stand still.  They're 6.5 weeks old now (born Feb 15th) and I'm counting down the days until they're weaned.  Some people love bottle feeding babies, but I cannot stand it!  They're just so darn obnoxious about it and it's a hassle.  I've always been this way though.  You either love it or you don't.  It just reminds me that I like sheep better than goats. Don't get me wrong, I love my does June and Ida, but if it wasn't for the goat milk I wouldn't hesitate to have only sheep. 

I took this video when I let the kids and the pig out to graze a little bit.  The pig loves her time out, and luckily she doesn't stray too far...although she did meet the electric fence yesterday!

I really like having the pig.  Maybe one day when we have more space we can breed and raise them.
