Boys are good!

 Does he look good in black and white?

Chrome watches me while I play with the goats.  I swear he's jealous!  I've still been bad about posting.  I'm sorry!  The new year hasn't started off great as far as my job has been concerned.  I don't want to go into details on here, but it's nothing earth shattering.  Just short tempers and I've been stressed with trying to avoid the flu that is circulating in the office. *shudder*  I don't know how I'm going to avoid it.  :\

Enough of that though.  The boys are doing great and that's what is important to me.  I just wanted to share a few pictures and I wanted to apologize for continuing to be so absent.


Bad lightning, but he looks good.  He's actually not fat!  I mean obviously he isn't fit or anything, but he's not a blimp either.  Winter is so kind to him lol.  It's so weird to have a horse that thrives in the winter and is so miserable in the summer.  I'm actually dreading the summer because of his sweet itch.... it used to be my favorite season.

You haven't seen this adorable face in a while!!!

Zep is doing well.  He's finally stopped trying to kill the goats (did I forget to mention that?), so that's a relief.  I was worried we would have to rehome him since we don't have a place to keep him that is separated from the goats.... but we figured out a safe feeding situation that avoids conflict.  We are also going to get him gelded, but HUGE truck repair expenses put a delay on our plans... sigh.  I'm so glad he's being nice though because I was in tears when we were considering having to find him a new home!  We've had him almost nine years and I can't imagine parting with him.


 I got a picture of Rocky without his face in a hay bale!  Welcome to the light of day piggie lol.  He's doing well too.  Sorry the lighting is awful.  I took these pictures last weekend at the wrong time of day.  I don't have a lot of choices though.  I never see daylight on work days and on weekends it's too cold outside during the nice lighting times.


I have to wash his tail again ick.  Chrome likes to beg at the dutch doors for handfuls of hay because obviously the goat hay is better than his hay (actually I think it's simply because it comes from my hand like a treat). *eye roll*

Well that's all for now.  Hopefully I can get some new pictures this weekend, but don't hold your breath for me getting them posted any time soon.  I had to work most of the day today and only having one day off a week puts me way behind on things like... laundry!  :(  I hope you all are doing well.  I miss you guys!!

Happy New Year!!!!!!

 I love this boy!  He is so gorgeous!  Yes I'm biased. ;)

I already rambled on my other blog (click here to visit http://myfarmerlife.blogspot.com/) so if you want to know my thoughts on the new year go check that post out.  If not, then enjoy the two measly pictures I got of Chrome.  Rocky and Zep wouldn't get their heads out of the hay bale so I didn't get any pictures of them.  Chrome is my always curious one so he was underfoot as always while I was trying to photograph the goats. 


Chrome is loving this below freezing weather we've been having.  He loves it so much more than summer.  Who could blame him with his sweet itch?  I'm starting to dislike summer too, with the stupid gnats, flies, ticks, fleas, spiders, ants, etc.  I hate parasites!  So anyway my silly boy was scaring the cats and goats.  He does it on purpose sometimes.  Look at the terrified expression on Pharaoh's face in the above picture.  You can see Emi's tail on the left hand side of the picture too where she was bolting away.  He was just going to get a drink, but at one point Chrome was jealous because he thought we were feeding the goats so he trotted to the gate and instead of going around the goats he went right through them.  They scattered like bowling pins.  It was so funny because I know he won't hurt them.  He's not aggressive like the donkey sometimes is.

So anyway, everyone is doing great here.  I just wanted to wish you all a Happy New Year!!!!!  I hope 2018 is amazing for all of you!

P.S.  If you didn't read the other post, just want to let you know I'm not doing reviews or goals/resolutions this year.

Piggy Boy!


My little brat Chrome somehow got the goat's protein tub out of their pen (I think one of them got it stuck on their horns and carried it out).  He, Rocky and Zep all pigged out on it.  Thankfully it is an all natural tub that won't hurt them and there wasn't much left.  Look at the mess he made though!

It goes all the way up to his cheekbone...

 Look at that nose!  Ick!!

 His tail still looks pretty good after I washed it.  I need to wash it again....


Sorry for such a short post.  I just wanted to share these pictures of my cute boy.
