Anyone else starting to feel “extra fluffy?” 😬🐐 * * My big boy Kai is looking even stockier now that his winter coat is coming in. When the temps drop, everyone starts packing on those holiday pounds, getting super fuzzy, and going crazy 😜for their grain rations and hay 🌾 * During the warmer months, the herd spends most of their time out in the pasture, browsing 🌿🌱🍂during the day and being fed some grain before bedtime. Now that it’s chilly ⛄️, everyone is in hibernation-mode, hanging closer by the barn, lounging in the sun ☀️ to stay warm, and getting their grain for breakfast AND dinner. Eating before bed gets their rumens churning, increasing their metabolism 🔥 and naturally warming their bodies during those night time lows ❄️ I kinda do the same during the winter: craving warmer, comfort foods 🥘 and putting on some extra padding 🤭🤷‍♀️😂 * * Playing along with my goat lovin’ friends, Victoria @theyounghomestead homestead, Chelsea @chelleninmt and this week’s guest host, Kirsten @hostilevalleyliving for #meetmygoatmonday! Go ahead and share your best goat 🐐 pics today for a chance to win some delicious goat milk caramels 🍫 from the lovely Lylah @thesimplefarm ❤️❤️❤️ I’m inviting @quirkyfarming @timbercreekfarmandhomestead and @camoandfeathers to share if they’d like! * 🚨 Also, our #goatboss tees (click link in bio 👆👆) are being restocked and will arrive in time for Christmas 👚📦🎄 Order NOW and treat yourself or give them as gifts to your friends and family who are #crazyforgoats! • • • #newkidsontheblock #mondayvibes #babyboy #goatsofinstagram #goatsareawesome #babyanimals #cute #cutenessoverload #furball #arapawagoats #goatjournal #buck #goatfarm ##itssofluffy #iamamodernfarmer #babygoats #countrylife #ctfarm #animalconservancy #livestockconservancy #rarebreed #farmlife #lifeouthere #newburyfarms

The look of a resounding “nope” 🐐. . With all of the rain and wind, this is the closest that the goats came to leaving the goat barn today, and we don’t blame them! The rain washed away most of the snow throughout the day and has left us with overflowing French drain catch basins, a flooded goat pen, a half destroyed garden, and what is sure to be more mud than we know what to do with 🤦🏼‍♀️. At least we got to enjoy the beautiful snow for a few hours 🌨. . . #nope #nigeriandwarfgoats #goatsandsnow #snowday #hobbyfarm #farmsweetfarm #lifeouthere #goatjournal #iamcountryside

Pretty Penny climbing on the haystack. Why do goats love to climb? One reason is that goats are prey animals and it’s wired into them to get to the highest point to watch for predators. If you watch a herd of goats browsing, there will always be one that is on a higher point than all the others. This is the watcher who will alert the herd to a predator nearby. Goats are not grazers, they are browsers so it's in their nature to eat brush, weeds and trees that cows and sheep would starve on. They will go either from plant to plant nibbling only the best of it or they will go from tree to tree trying to get to the best parts of each tree or bush. #nigeriandwarfgoat #goatsofinstagram #goatgamestrong #goats #goat #nigeriandwarf #goatjournal

If I had my way, all of my animals would free range all day long, including my #nigeriandwarfgoats. But Tink, our circus act who can scale an 8 foot fence in one single leap, has a fascination with the hood of Mike’s Ford F-150. So, when he’s at Home Depot or Lowe’s, I let Tink and Willow forage freely on the farm. Typically they run and play and jump on hay bales in the barn, but today, they made a meal on pecan leaves; less I have to rake. 💃🏻 ❄️ Our #farmsteadersholiday theme for today is MEALS! This should make us all hungry! ❄️ Tomorrow we will select a winner to receive hand crafted fingerless gloves in 100% wool yarn beautifully created by @timbercreekfarmandhomestead. ❄️ Please tag the hosts and the sponsor in your photo: @timbercreekfarmandhomestead @atablefullinthewoods @moderndaysoldways @the_red_barn_farm @camoandfeathers @the_teenage_homesteader ❄️ Use the hashtag #farmsteadersholiday! ❄️ We can't wait to see your pictures! ❄️ Check out my stories to see the winner from yesterday’s challenge! ❄️ When you’re done, hop on over and play along with #❤️MYFARM today!

When gate latches fail 😑 * * The “Three Musketeers” enjoyed some freedom this morning, stopping by my back deck to request snacks 🤦‍♀️ I eventually lured them into the barnyard with some grain🌾 Last month, we had a “prison break” that resulted in earlier breeding than I had planned. I’m not entirely sure who was “successfully” bred during that encounter (it’s only been one heat cycle), so extra mixing-and-mingling with Philippe is fine with me since that’ll mean kids due in April and/or May! 🤞 I’m also cherishing every moment watching my little herd spend time together before the boys go off to live in PA next week 🥺😢😩 * * Sharing today’s escapades with Wendy @wendyalexis78 and Janet @timbercreekfarmandhomestead for this week’s #homesteadmoments. What’s happening on your farms/homesteads today? 💁‍♀️ * * * #arapawagoats #fridayvibes #bestiesfortheresties #iamagoatboss #goatboss #sillyboys #escapeartists #buck #thislittlepiggy #greatpyrenees #livestockguardiandog #threemuskateers #fridayfeeling #pigsofinstagram #friendship #iamamodernfarmer #homesteadmoment #farmiswheretheheartis #asimplecountrylife #oinkoink #goatsofinstagram #goatjournal #goatsareawesome #iamcountryside #farmlife #farmsweetfarm #newburyfarms

Bold colors for a glamorous Cricket - 6 x 6 acrylic on wooden canvas - #meetmygoatmonday winner of a giveaway I had with @theyounghomestead and @chelleninmt 🎉- As I drove my big boys (3 & 5yo) to school this morning we always pass a “Charlie Brown Christmas tree” that keeps collecting more and more ornaments on the side of the road. Our boys just love it and search for it each time we head that way. Also a reminder this Christmas season from reading today “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” - Jesus 🌲John 8:12 🎄🎄His promise to you today is life • • • • #arttakesover #artwork_daily #artistmom #boymom #explorecreate #createeveryday #artworkoftheday #creativelife #carveouttimeforart #abstractart #acrylicpainting #womenartists #dscolor #artforbreakfast #dslooking #create_mag #visualsoflife #doitfortheprocess #laurenspindleart #farmhouseart #farmhousestyle #farmhousechristmas #goatjournal #simplelife #farmliving #lovemyfarm #goatportrait

Roger the Goat. Looked like a keeper from the day he was born last February. He’s growing into a big guy (relative to the fact that he’s half Myotonic, a smaller meat goat breed!) with a gorgeous coat and a sweet face. . He’s definitely excited to procreate 🤣and he’s had to figure out his dynamic with Rex, our older billy. His friendly personality reminds me of his dad, who “retired” this summer and also his sweet (but troublemaking) momma. . . . . . . #rogerthegoat #nextgeneration #billygoat #buckling #goats #goatsofinstagram #goat #farm #farmlife #goatjournal #goatfarm #iamcountryside #goatlove #countryliving #farmliving #smallfarm #happygoats #countrysideandfarmlife #pocket_farms #meatgoats #goatherd #squadgoals #totesmagoats #totesmygoats #lifeouthere #goatlife #farmlife #forest #regenerativeagriculture #sustainablefarming

Doesn’t everyone with goats have that one silly cutie in the herd? Ours is our 7 month old Mel named after my girlfriend who passed away & who’s goat farm she comes from @jackrabbitgoats .. Mel is very special .. not just for the above reasons, but for her gentle nature, beautiful coloring & proportions. She loves to pose for the camera. I swear she pauses & smiles every time. I cant wait to breed her in a year! Playing along with #meetmygoatmonday hosted by Victoria @theyounghomestead & Chelsea @chelleninmt ! Love this hashi!!! ❤️ #goatlove #goatsofinstagram #goatjournal #nigeriandwarfgoat #mel

Kix and his twin sister Roxie are getting into the Christmas spirit! Well...not really. This series of pics will show that the struggle is real when trying to put anything on top of a goat’s head.
