It’s So Hot!

It’s been so hot, my brain has lost all its words. Instead, I give you this picture of a goat who thinks it’s so hot, you might as well stand in your drink. I’m not inclined to disagree…much.

As usual, there’s a bimonthly album here.


Garlic Harvest & Goat Helpers

Last fall, Tony picked up and I planted some garlic (neither of us remembers how much we got). This summer, we finally got to pull it out of the ground and this is what we ended up with.
The really cool thing is that those are not small heads…they fill my hand. I tried to minimize how large it looks in this picture. The first picture I took made them look huge (they are huge, but I don’t want to misrepresent their size when I send Tony a picture).
I said last week that work stuff had gotten shifted around. I’ve done some mucking, which is something I definitely know how to do. I have never mucked with a bunch of goat kids making sure I did it right, though.

Helpers at Work and Pig Showers

Last week, Lulo and Bear helped me put the milking herd out. While I can’t say they were super helpful (they’re not my dogs; I don’t know how to direct them; and even if I did, I wouldn’t know what to tell them to do), it was nice to have the company.
The pigs love getting sprayed with the hose. I’m not sure what the draw is, given that they have both a water trough (which they “swim” in) and a mud pit they wallow in. I’ve never seen them get excited about a rainstorm either.

Shifted Schedules

The last week or so has been really chaotic at work and it kind of threw my brain into a weird place of trying to figure out what’s going on and when and how to schedule my own stuff. So, I didn’t get a blog post done last week and I’m sorry. Have a picture to hold you over (work has been sorted out, so my brain is much less out of sorts) until Thursday. We didn’t get any rain out of this, but it was pretty.
