In and Out

They’re in.

They’re out.
IMG_5658
It’s been a battle of wills and fencing lately.


Nutmeg is the most persistent.
IMG_6121
She knows what she wants and she doesn’t let anything stand in her way. Particularly welded wire.
IMG_6176
She’s really just a wee thing.
IMG_6170
Not much bigger than a medium-sized dog.

Boomer’s not sure what to make of her when she comes to the porch. Maybe she wants to play?
IMG_6182
He doesn’t understand this head-butting game she likes.
IMG_6157
Maybe Nutmeg would like to wrestle?
IMG_6189
Please?
IMG_6191
Silly dog.

You know she came up here to POOP.
IMG_6152
Nutmeg: “I’ll trade ya for some cookies.”
IMG_6180
Boomer: “I was gonna take a nap there.”

Don’t worry, Boom Boom. I’ve got this whole thing under control.

Or not…….

    HeHeHe….Nutmeg was so jealous when Annabelle hung out on the porch, she had to try it!

    The porch is better playground than the hood and roof of the car.

    At least they do not go for a walk down the road. lol. Nutmeg is really small. Funny to see her next to Boomer who also is not that big.

    What a fun household you are running. Now if you could just get Yahoo to stop trying to keep me away each day life would be so perfect. I laugh and cry at your posts and enjoy the news letter. Gives me a chance to revist the posts I enjoyed the first time around.

    She just wants to be near you! (and the cookies!)

    My friend had a poop slide for his goats made from roofing tin
    a piece of wood and a couple of old tires. They loved hearing the poop clatter onto the slide and the bucket at the end made collecting
    the goodies for the garden a breeze. His goats stood in line for turns to poop down the slide. It was hilarious. Maybe 52 could rig one up for Nutmeg.

    When Little n. asks what ‘turtle beans’ are, I will not show him this post! He likes turtle beans because he thinks they are named because they look like turtle food, not from the other end. I swear: YES my boy thinks that he is a turtle.

    I wondered if you were able to keep them in with that type of fencing. I’ve read that with goats you have to have something with smaller holes in it and practically bury the stuff a foot to keep them from getting out.

    Sure make cute porch ornaments though. (Nutmeg not the poop.)

    I use poultry netting to keep mine in. It doesn’t always work, but mostly. I do have one escape artist. He now climbs the gate and jumps over it. The gate is covered with poultry netting.

    What a sweet, thoughful little goat Nutmeg is! She is just trying to save you from having to go down the stairs to the goat yard to give them cookies. She came up for them! And, she says she will take the cookies for the others down, also. (In her rumen!) Now isn’t that just a thoughtful goat?

    Suzanne, how long does it take you each day to feed all the critters?

    Love your blog!

    We use cattle paneling to keep our goats in. Of course, it only works well with BIG goats! :yes:

    I think you need to use wire with smaller holes—like horse wire.

    Nutmeg reminds me of the kind of cat that wants to stand in the open doorway and think about whether it wants to be outside. She thinks she wants to be outside, but when she does find herself outside, she wants back in. Right now. Nevermind she’ll want back out in a few minutes. Or it could all be a ploy to get cookies.

    RE” the news letter.
    How could you. You knew I was a puzzle nut. And yet you printed a link to send me into a wold of puzzles from which I cannot escape. Please help me, I can’t help myself. It is now on my favorites and I may never get back. Not til I do them all. Ah…………….

    I love the puzzle link of your critters. I had made a bunch with my dogs a few years ago and it’s really fun, especially if you change the cut to the REALLY hard ones. Great time waster. :woof:

    Ha! Too cute. We once had a pygmy goat (wedding gift). We lived on a 110 acre farm then & our goat & black lab would play the head- butt game for hours. Gotta love animals! D

    I love the little dog. He must be a rat terrier mix? I have had Jack Russels and I love those little dogs!!! Mine is 16 years old and hardly gets around at all. Yours is what I live to see…cause mine doesn’t even go for walks now. I can’t get another until he is gone because I know those liite spunky guys would hurt him unknowingly. I live the goats and dog pictures!!!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
