We continue to have lovely weekend weather thru late November here in central VT.  It’s been fantastic, giving lots of time for those pesky getting ready for winter chores, like splitting and stacking firewood, putting the gardens to bed, fixing the roof etc.   The goats have loved being able to be outside, and the grass is still nice and green for them.   My mom came up to visit and meet the new kids this weekend.  We had a great time and she was quite bowled over by how adorable and personable they are.

She was relieved to see that they are indeed getting a nice new coat before the real cold sets in.

Gratuitous cuteness

I decided to take extra advantage this weekend and clean out the goats winter stall, freshening it up for them.   Then I gave them their second round of dewormer and started on the hoof trimming.  They were happy for the fresh bedding, and all promptly curled up and went to sleep.  Nothing is better to quiet the mind than a barn full of contented goats.

    “Nothing is better to quiet the mind than a barn full of contented goats.” I think I wanted that line embedded on my tombstone. Thanks for the great reads, Kristen! Good luck with the shed – I honestly am looking forward to more updates on that. I find your goaty venture so alluring.

    Your goaties look lovely! I hope that they appreciate what a good landlord you are.

    Your goats look very sweet. Angoras are so sweet and gentle. They look like they have found a nice home with people that care for them,

    I am glad they have nice warm winter coats too. And Evan and I have to bring wood to the house too. 😉
