....the four wheeler because we've been cutting browse for them each morning. There's an old ice chest strapped to the front of the four wheeler, and each morning my milking partner cruises the woods to prune the tender ends of branches for our completely spoiled does. He fills that ice chest with oak and walnut and grape vines and wild rose, and than the four wheeler roars back toward the goat yard. Our goat ladies hop and run along the fence in glee! :baby04:

They do, of course, have quite a large fenced area that runs down the hill, but apparently boogie men live at the lower end where the browse is thickest. They won't go there without human escort. :shrug:

Oooo, spoiled goaties! :p I should go trim some wild grape vines for my spoiled goats too - we've got tons growing down the driveway.

DH weeds the garden and brings armfuls of dandelion and chicory for our goats - and the rabbits. :) What they don't eat, the ducks clean up. :dance:

We have everyone running at the sound of the weed eater!

Running out of good pasture from lack of rain.

The mule & heifer have to race neck & neck, to see who gets here first. :shrug: :rolleyes:

The goats stand back until the big girls start eating, then they tip toe in, grab huge mouthfuls, & tip toe out :p .
