I worked 9-6 today so I got to take a morning walk around the place inspecting what the rains had done and how spring was coming along. I found where Chester had been thoughtful enough to divide some of my comfrey for me. He had climbed that big hill and and dissected the plant and planted pieces of it in the walk by the pool. Rather than criticize his handiwork I got my trowel and moved the new healthy plants to more appropriate locations. Five free plants! Win win.
I found all the baby goats sleeping in their stalls looking snug with their mommies. They crawled into the plastic tote that I use to carry hay and have been using it as a sleeping area. Bennie didn't have to bottle feed Daphne the little doe I was worried about this morning as he says her little belly was round and full. So good to know they're doing well.
There's five baby goats big enough to play outside now. They looked so cute yesterday afternoon running around and around the big round bale of hay out in the pasture.
