Three for three!

We got the call yesterday that Lily would be Student Of The Month this month. Three for three! When they called her name the parents seated behind us started giggling about how gigantic her smile was. She has been telling us how honest she has been at school in hopes of being recognized this month...honesty was the attribute....LOL. Way to go Lily Bug.

That smile was beaming...when your siblings have already been Student Of The Month and you are the last girl standing it is a very big deal!

Mom, Dad, little bro and Grandma came to celebrate.

It has been so beautiful out the last few days...we got the goats new area finished up while Jericho spent some time playing with the babies.

It is sure going to be hard to say goodbye to that little Heidi, what a sweetheart.

So this is where the girls will be, when they are not in the mobile pen moving around the property eating blackberry leaves. It is kind of hard to see, but the area is pretty big, about 67 feet by 64 feet, and their new shelter in 10 1/2 feet by 5 1/2 feet.

Pretty bare in here right now, but once all this stuff starts blooming the goats should be loving it.

They butt up to the chicken pen.

Some natural obstacles.

Got their minerals, baking soda, goat chow and orchard grass in their shelter.

Should be nice and roomy for 4 goats....maybe a couple more next year wink wink.

We got a few little "toys" added for goat fun...more will come, gotta keep em from getting bored.

We did a little trailer loading work with her royal bitchiness today too. We were able to load and unload Ava in her new trailer twice today, only took an hour....and half a dozen short lunging sessions. She is so damn stubborn, bought her a huge trailer because she hated loading into the small one I was borrowing from a friend....I was hoping for a little more appreciation LOL. We will keep at it. At least she stayed nice and calm the whole time...with her best bud Jason. Jason is now a horse owner LOL....I need to find a horse that likes ME. 

Having a rather useless heart to heart...does she look like she is ready to cooperate? Nope.

She would get so close then change her mind.

Well guess you better run some more. Horses are pretty lazy, usually they will put it together that if they do what they are asked they get to be still...if not you make them exercise LOL. Not even for a treat.

Run Ava, run!


Making good on their chore deals.

Wheelbarrows are hard to drive LOL.
Beautiful view today.

Almost sun down, Xan and Hayden spent the last of the day playing out in the pasture.

I'm ready for summer...warm clear nights, can't wait. Too bad rain is back in the forecast. Ugh.
