Our goats Annabelle and Ruby have been such a joyous addition to our family. They are always so happy to see us :-)
The other week we got a dusting of snow, but it was quite warm afterwards so it wasn't lasting long.
We thought it was the perfect day to get their little house all cleaned out and fresh straw laid.
They were quite curious so I had to distract them so Jerry could get started, I think I had the easy part that day, lol.
We started a compost area so it will all break down and we can use it in the Spring time for our garden beds.
Being a fairly new goat owner I joined a Facebook group to share stories, suggestions etc. with others and a few people had mentioned about covering the holes in the spools the goat's play on so they wouldn't fall through it and break a leg. I was so thankful for that advice because it wasn't something that had occurred to me prior to that.
Jerry cut some old plywood he had and covered the holes to be sure they were safe. They aren't just farm animals to use, they are family ;-)
He also built that awesome bench in the background for them and us to enjoy spending time with them.
All set and ready to go for a safe playtime! As you can see Annabelle loves to run and jump!
This is a video from my YouTube channel which I plan to add more videos to in the upcoming year. :)
Love these two!!!
"Hey mom whatcha doin?' ;-)
All settled in nice, warm and dry with some hay to eat :-)
Then I took a few moments to just enjoy more of the beauty in my yard :-)
Jerry built another bird feeder so we could see them when we sit in the sunroom. :-)
Well quite clearly this little squirrel thinks we built it for him and he's been in his glory feasting ever since. Even runs down with a mouthful and hand fulls and buries it in a hole nearby, lol.
My dear friend for over 20 years sent me this beautiful jewelry box that plays Amazing Grace and also this beautiful butterfly necklace in memory of my mom. I'll treasure it always, really means a lot to me.
We went out to do some last minute Christmas shopping this past weekend and I made sure to grab a family selfie. Love these 3 more than words can say!
And just for a little laugh I had to share this...... lol, having 5 dogs I know this wish of theirs all too well! That and waiting for us to throw the tennis balls to them.
