Reed’s grandma Cheryl called and asked if I wanted my goats to have the branches that they were trimming from their evergreens. If you are past reader you might remember that I collect Christmas trees for my goats to chew on and play with so of course I said “yes”! Here’s the loaded trailer coming to my house.
Oh, this was going to be just too much fun! After unloading the rack, I shut the goats out of the pasture until Connie and I could cut some of the beautiful evergreen sprays. Then the goats were allowed in and they went to work eating and butting and scratching on the branches.
I couldn’t wait to take my evergreen sprays to the house and decorate. Here’s what I did with them outside.
I’d like to decorate indoors with fresh evergreens but will wait till closer to Christmas so they don’t get so dried out and brittle.
The triplet goats named Reed, Myra and Nolan are doing well. Betsy says they’re a lively group but one of the triplets across the aisle that we saw first died today. I could not raise goats for a living. Tomorrow Reed and I are going back to Betsy’s to see everybody and we invited Myra to go along. There will probably be more new babies by the time we get there and Betsy said maybe Nolan is going to get a bottle tomorrow. I’ll be right there with my camera.
I went to see my friend Gayle at the care center today. MS is a terrible condition! She is paralyzed but still in pain – poor thing! I told her I was going to bring her to my house because I have a wheelchair ramp so she could get inside. Maybe I’ll finish my Christmas decorating first so she can see it.
Connie and I are both sewing every day. Wish I could show it to you! Look for a goat update after we visit tomorrow.
