I tried…

The goats don’t really like the snow so much.  They’ve been huddling in the barn since it started falling a few weeks back.  Occasionally, when we have a warmer day, and it’s not wild weather, I will set up some fencing and try to get the goats outside.  They seem to get bored hanging around inside, jumping at the gate etc, so I really think they’ll want to hang outside for a while.  This weekend, for the beginning of the New Year I tried again.

Hmm...what's this?

I'm not sure about this white stuff...the dogs seem to like it though.

She's got treats!

Gobble, gobble!

No more treats? See ya!

Pedey still likes a good snuggle.

And, this New Year’s Day, we welcomed Flanagan to our happy little family.  He’s a 6 year old, German Shepherd mix, and such a good boy.  He gets along with Youkilis and the goats and is starting to feel more at home every day.

    The goats are adorable! Thank you for all of the pictures! I wonder if somebody in a situation like your own has invented winter boots for goats…

    I’m sure that they will get more used to the snow as the winter wears on. Otherwise you’ll have to teach them how to play bridge or mah jong so they won’t get too rowdy in that barn.

      I could probably use the boots they make for the dog sledding dogs….not that they would like that any better 🙂

    You have so sweet goats!
    Our goats seem to enjoy the snow. They don’t mind running outside the stomping in the forest.

    I forgot to ask about the new guy on sunday, but he looks so cute! Is he settling in well?

    • 10. countryelvis4  |  01/11/2010 at 6:18 pm

      For the most part he is, such a sweetie. He does get a wee bit anxious when left alone, Brad was making us separate him from Youk while we were at work, but I left them together today and I hope that it goes better. Nothing terrible happened, but he moved the couch all over the room one day last week 🙂

    It is funny how the goats are so food driven. I swear for treats you can get them to do almost anything. Until the treats are gone then they are on their way.

    Love the snuggle pic! I have to put hay on the ground if I want my precious chickens to come out it the snow…..so spoiled!!!
