200 year-old house on 25 rocky acres in high country upstate NY and SO many highbush blueberries!

Wordless Wednesday (Almost)
The goats sticking their nose up at yummy apple slices. Maybe it'll take them a while. They just realized that they like hay after giving it a pass for several days. Now, if I painted the apple slices green and cut them in the shape of a leaf ... yum.
More practice with the leashes. It's getting a little easier.
These goats have the option of wood chip bedding or hay. Looks like they chose hay for last night's bed.
Another blogger wrote about how little time it takes to own animals. I'm not finding that true at all, but since I'm relatively new at this, I'm investing more time with each group. Last night I got home from work an hour late, spent an hour taking care of dogs, chickens, cats and goats, so only had an hour left before dark to work on the coop. Spent most of that hour figuring out how to make something fit, and poof, that time was gone. Then inside for a little din and done for the day. Zzzz in the cold, cold house and woke to snow. It's time for it to get warm now!!
