    Yes above 60 in early Feb! unheard of :shocked:


    Goats decided they wanted out of their pen and since I was going back and forth putting bales of hay in the barn that I had just bought i was like "why not?" :shrug:

    They had a blast running here and there and just exploring the yard then the side yard (g'mom's property) on grandmom's deck etc. I ran inside to get my camera and Lola followed me in :doh: took her back out and Jitterbug walked in, went back in to get her and Lola followd me in. IT was funny - got them both out and then started to take pictures.

    Jitterbug and Angie were SO curious about their reflections. Jitterbug was rather scared at first :ROFL:

    It has been record highs here also. I personally do NOT like it because we SSSOOOOOO Need snow. We are going to be in for another really rough summer in the pastures if we do not get some snow.

    Stacy, is that green I saw in you picture? WOW I have not seen that is a while. :drool:

    thanks guys for the nice complements.

    Yesterday it was SO WINDY. (actually at least 2 deaths were reported because of the wind, how sad). Thankfully not roofs came off or trees down in our area but there was some damage to other areas of the state and PA


    Brandi I was thinking I would love to live in Alabama -- get hurricans much though? :worried:

    Nope, no hurricane's where I live. We are in the Northwest corner of AL, so all we see off of the hurricanes is maybe a few thunderstorms :wink:

    The coldest it has been here this winter is 6 degrees and it hasn't gotten that cold here in about 6 years they said. But the majority of the cold days are usually in the 30's. We don't have very many cold COLD days at all, and very little to no snow. For the past couple of weeks it has been in the 60's and 70's and has been GORGEOUS! I will put it this way... in 2007 Dixie had a little of puppies on January 4th and it was so warm here me and Lee were riding around on the 4-wheeler in short sleeves. Now we do get some days in the summer that break the 100 degrees mark, but last year we didn't have NEAR as bad of a summer as we did the year before. I really do like it here. We have a really good neighborhood here, and the land is just gorgeous. Here are a few of the pics I have of some of our land:

    These were all taken around July in a couple of different years. The only reason there is alot of dirt in the first pic is because they were building a pond at the time and had everything torn up :wink: I will try to get some up-to-date pics sometime.

    Stacey, your girls look like they want that warm weather to LAST!! And yes...it was VERY WINDY here as well...a few towns to the south and west of me lost power....and a GIANT pine tree uprooted in my sis's yard, which it thankfully came down across her dog kennels and missed the house.


    Angie is so big!!! My goodness did she grow fast...and Jitterbug looks like the "oddball"...lol, she's the only black goatie there! Lola looks like a shiny copper penny in the sunlight...bet she gets brighter as she sheds out, and Sw'P looks so like the matriarch of the herd...Miss Mia is as sweet as always :love:

    LOL! Thanks everyone... Stacey, I am sorry I wasn't trying to steal your thread or anything :oops: just wanted to show you what you were asking about :thumb: (I hope that's ok)

    :ROFL: are you good at disbudding?? :ROFL: If we end up expanding my herd alot the end of this year, then I will definitely need some extra help. Hubby has been talking about finishing fencing the whole 50 acres here for goats (I will get some pics of the 50 acres right here this Spring... the pics I listed our of the rest of his families land a mile down the road. We have roughly 1,000 more acres down there), and is saying I can put as many on it as I want :shocked: I told him that if we went over 15 head that I would be hiring a couple of hands to work for me :greengrin: I am not even ATTEMPTING to run a large herd by myself again! Takes all the fun out of it :wink: I would really love to eventually have a herd of cattle at the back of our land and then a large goat herd on the rest with a few ranch hands to help out with everything. That is my dream :greengrin:
