Freya and Skittles - Adventures of Baby Goats

Freya and Skittles - Adventures of Baby Goats

     Well Lil’ Frey and Skittles have become best friends!  Skittles has been out and about with Freya for the last couple of weeks enjoying the pasture and play along with the “big” goats.  Freya is, of course, the big sister and takes charge of situations.   When I give them hay, she makes sure it is played with enough before they eat.  Same with the grain.       Lil’Frey still enjoys being outside of the pen, in the barn.  That is the best playtime EVER!  Things can be pushed off and bang, spilled out and lots of noise can be made...

Little Adventures of  Freya - aka, Lil' Frey

     By this time of year we have at least 10 – 20 baby goats and mammas usually have more than one, so one baby is generally not alone.  Not this year!  We have just one!  Freya - aka, Lil’ Frey.       She has been a delight!  At first, I was concerned for her since they like companionship, but Poe filled that position wonderfully.         Poe is a cat that loves the babies.  He truly gets excited about them.  Running in circles under my feet as I carry the little ones to the heat lamp.  He promptly started cleaning her...

TRUE LOVE! THE STORY OF TINSEL AND RAZZELFLABBEN

     Once upon a time a little goat was born.  Her name was Tinsel. She was pure white and very beautiful!  However, a couple of weeks after she was born an accident happened which caused her to loose one of her front feet.  This was extremely hard on her caretakers since they loved her very much.  (It was harder on them then it was on her).  Because she was so special, she quickly became very spoiled!  She was carried everywhere, even though she got around fine.       She grew into an elegant doe (adult female goat) and she...


THE GEESE!

THE GEESE!

Since there is a pond on our property, we get an assortment of water fowl visiting.  Over the years we have had some fun varieties here and since I like bird watching I get excited when an unusual variety lands and spends some time here.   Geese, however are not so unusual.  Not in Ohio anyway.  When we first moved here 27 years ago, a couple of pairs decided to nest here.  We were delighted!  Babies came and they were so cute! (They still are).  The next year was about the same.  We watched with anticipation as the babies grew...
