Wonderful Wednesday











While checking out tomato plants guess what I found?
Little tomatoes! It won't be long till they are big,red and ready to eat. I can't wait as I love fresh tomatoes. When I went to bring Sweet Pea inside I found Diva and her kids settled down for the night or at least all but one was settled down.

One of the rabbits was enjoying the last little bit of sunlight.

I made a hay rack out of a old metal crib frame yesterday. The dwarfs decided it was more fun to climb in it.

I pressure washed the back porch today and moved Bud out there. He is so happy to be outside even if its only on the porch.

Even though Sweet Pea was standing with her mommy she was ready for me to bring her inside and give her a nice warm bottle. Sammi does not let her nurse at all.

You can see how much bigger her brothers are than she is. Hopefully she will catch up soon.I have had several ask how I keep Sweet Pea from leaving pee and poo all over the house. Well now you know her little secret. But don't tell anyone as she is embarrassed.

You are SO far ahead of us (in effort and in seasonal warmth)! I can't believe you have baby toms already! Love that bunny. And the goat-in-bed photo is pretty awesome too!

I'm a little envious...it's been so cool here that I haven't gotten to start my tomato plants yet...maybe this weekend. Tell Sweet Pea her secret is safe with us! Happy Mothers Day this weekend.

Oh Peggy, love that you provide diapers for little Sweet Pea. Sensible idea!.
Poor little girl, she is so lucky to have you to look after her.

Your place seems to have life all around it:) It's great to read how much you love and care for your animals. They are beautiful goats even in diapers;)

The secret to having goats in diapers is to put the cute little attachment strip across their backs- diapers do not fit well if they are put on with the fasteners down underneath the belly.

Have you treated Sweet Pea for ciccidia? that is usually the cause of not much growth and being sick. Use Sulmet, corid, Albon, Calf-Pro (bovatec) to cure the problem.

As a childhood bed wetter I feel his embarassment! may the other goats not find out and tease him.

I can't believe you have tomatoes that big already! They look great.
I know all about the bottle feeding too. I am sure Sweet Pea will catch up in no time.
You certainly have been busy.
Great pictures.

Shame on Sammi! Poor little SweetPea! We had an English bulldog once and we put diapers on her during that time of the month. She was so shame face, she wouldn't move. Poor little fellers. xoxo

You know that Sweet Pea is never going to believe she is a goat now. Our goats always wanted to be inside anyhow. Now that this baby has been living inside she knows she is human.

Well I am here to tell you I am green with envy. Tomatoes already and we haven't even been able to plant ours yet. It is never safe to put those plants out before Mother's Day.

Think of me while you are biting into those tomatoes.
