Saturday Sunshine

June was enjoying the afternoon. When the sun is out around here, it's BIG news. Did you know that June sorta told me her name, because I never considered naming a pet "June."

Blissi, our female Irish Terrier, was having a grooming session.

Has Clara given me any grandgoats yet? nooooo, because she is too busy working on her TAN! Look at that udder!

SweetPea hanging with her buddies.

TootleLu and Gabbi

Funny, a lot of the hens have been laying their eggs in that bale of hay inside the trailer.

I made a batch of KitchenSink Soup today, it's been a soup and sandwich kinda day.

Slowly working on the camper part of the trailer.

Need a welder or brother-inlaw to remove the saddle racks. Got a lot to store in that area. Yes, the frig is plugged in and keeping drinks cold.

Had this since my broken ankle. I want some sort of indoor bathroom (not necessarily for regular use but middle of the night sorta thing). How 'bout if I fill a trash bag with pine shavings and hook the bag onto the toilet seat?

Recycled the old camper top from my pickup truck to the Wheaten Marans, they have a house to sleep in but wanted to encourage some broodiness. They seem to love that thing, all 7 of 'em hang out in there.

We took the bucks for a walk. If ya put MilkDud on a leash, the other bucks follow.

In the end, Pappy, Cahoot, and MilkDud were more interested in girls than going for a walk though.

Cahoot and MilkDud love on each other, real sweet to watch it.
Well. time sure flies when I have a sunny day off. Think I'll settle in with the lastest MotherEarthNews and check on Clara from time to time.

Can't think of a better way to spend the day than with the goaties! It is so sweet the way the goats love each other.We have that here with Butter Bean and Nibbles,and Butter Bean and Mr.Tumnus.

What a lovely way to spend a Saturday! I really enjoyed the pictures. Clara too busy working on her tan to have any babies...too funny!

Awww! That last photo warms my heart! Too sweet.

Great idea for the camper top, too.
The inside of that trailer is really nice. It's going to be a great place for you when you're traveling with goats...and even when you're not.

So you really don't have indoor toilet facilities?
Maybe you could do what we do when we're camping. We bought a plastic snap on toilet seat from a camping supply place. It snaps onto a 5 gallon bucket (laundry soap, kitty litter, paint) and we add the camping 'blue juice' which is a sanitizer and gets rid of odors, too. The potty seat has a lid, so noone has to look inside (also cuts down on odors).

It's great for those night time visits and it can dumped into any RV dumping facilities.

Come on Clara! Have those babies already! :)

Oh! And I meant to add that the Kitchen Sink soup looks yummy. Why is it called that?
I think I saw okra in there. I love okra!

Porta-potties are very inespensive..and handy to take to a restroom to dump...the seat and bucket would work too..but I think the Porta-potty would be better. We used one for a couple of years on a small boat.
