Yep, they can! After just a few minutes of what the heck are you, they settled in great! The goatie goats were so happy to be able to run around on dry ground! No more trying to hop from log to log to keep their little goatie feet dry.
Of course the added bonus of bark to eat and new things to nibble on!
We put SweetPea back with the herd too! We were a little worried,she had always hidden behind Guinness and not blended very well with the rest of the goaties.
She did great! She and Butter Bean played head butt! Nice head but, not the I want to knock you out kind of head butt!
She needs to put on some weight still.We have been trying to get her fattened back up but it just takes time.She is very happy and frisky though!
Sweet Pea even found a good head scratchin' sapling! That sapling is probably doomed!
Murry Von Furry Pants even got to spend some time out with the big goaties! They were very unimpressed with his cuteness!
Nibbles decided she would sit like a dog! She used to be one of the most hyper goats! Now that she is expecting she doesn't play like she used to. Can't blame her I guess!
She was quiet content to sit on her hay pile and watch the others and get some scratchins from The Boy!
On other farm notes,the weather has been pleasant but we are supposed to drop back into some freezing nights this week.This is bad for the fruit trees that have started to bud. That is a problem here,if you want to raise organic fruit you have to raise the early producers to beat the bugs and moldy,fungus things that come with the humid heat! With this crazy weather,freaky cold then freaky warm,the poor trees think it is spring..sigh. All my trees are too small to hold fruit yet except my apple trees.I did plant a peach and two figs yesterday,I plan to get another peach and a plum,I think.
My heart sank this morning when I went to feed the rabbits! The door was open to the momma and babies hutch! I could see coon tracks under the cage,they had been after the food and managed to unlatch the door. Momma was still there and 3 babies,one was missing! I figured the coon ate it.I was feeling very frustrated, we have lost a lot to coons and possums, when I walked around the chicken coop and saw a little white fluff ball peeking out from the bottom! She had fallen out of the open door and taken shelter under the coop! Me and The Boy were able to catch her and get her back with Momma where she belonged! It is really nice when the disasters turn out not to be disasters after all!
