For today’s #meetmygoatmonday I’d like to introduce Herbie! He’s not very happy with these pool noodles on his head, but we were trying to trim his hooves with 6 other goats jumping up and down in my lap. My daughter was brave and tried to hold him still for me to do it. @the_young_homestead @chelleninmt @boxwoodavenue . . . . . #herbie #goatsarethebest #pedicure #poolnoodle #goat #goats #myherd #pygmygoat #littlemansyndrome #goatsareawesome #ilovegoats #petgoat #goatsaspets

They all 4 climbed up on a bag of chicken grit and fell asleep in a tangled kitty pile. 🤭

Really, really hoping this is a Pinecone frizzle baby! Two tiny Cochins just hatched today and one more duckling. Three brooders and a bathtub full of baby chicks, ducklings, and turkeys! I love my feathered babies!

Boys couldn’t decide what was more intriguing; new cobalt block or mom.

Liam sleeping with his best friend, Turkey!

We painted baby turkey toenails so the kids know which one they picked. Liam absolutely loves his baby turkey. He took her in our bed and curled up and fell asleep with her. #aboyandhisturkey

Brought Luda in for a lube job. With temps falling, we went ahead and coated his extra large comb and wattles with Vaseline so he won’t have any issues with frostbite. He spent the night indoors a few nights last year, he will again this year on the coldest nights.

Lucy has taken over as leader in Bert’s absence. She is leading the flock just like she was taught, fiercely. Bert will be back outside in no time hopefully.

Billy Jack better snuggle up to those ladies today because it just suddenly became winter overnight!

Baby turkeys are literally the softest ever. And these tiny snoods are melting my heart over and over!

Scooter is teaching Charleigh how to play nicely. She picks on Foxy, the tiniest pup of them all. Scooter is the alpha and Charleigh is picking that up pretty fast.

Don’t mind me, my face or me obnoxiously talking to my birds. Just focus on how sweet it is how much Bert and Lucy love each other!!!
