Mighty Warriors

Today the mighty warriors helped move the young bucklings into the pen with the big bucks. Never mind that they left the gate open and we had to chase those young bucklings all over the creation before moving them to said pen.
We then moved little Princess Diva in the pen with the big does and her mom Diva. No problem there as she was happy to go. We also moved Mandy and Baby in the same pen and pasture. They were very happy.
We then moved Blinkin into the nursery pen which was once the maternity pen and now is again. No problem there as she was happy to have the space and be alone.
We moved the young dwarf bucklings too but I lost count how many times the mighty warriors let them get loose.
From there with sweat dripping the mighty warriors helped move the baby chicks to a bigger pen and Dorthy and her unique family to a bigger pen too. No escapes and things went smoothly.
The mighty warriors were getting hot and thirsty but the wicked witch kept them working. They mulched part of the garden and oh my goodness they got their mighty warrior hands dirty! They also wanted to take the dogs for a walk but after letting them out and having to chase them around the world and back (too busy to take photos) the walk was cancelled. The sun was starting to set so the mighty warriors needed fire.
But those fires were too big for the mighty warriors and had to be put out.
Mighty warriors decided it best to enjoy fire by eating steak and baked potato cooked on wicked witch's fire instead.

Sounds like the wicked witch kept them very busy! Hope they sleep good! I'd need my rest after that!

Have a good end of the week.

Oh my goodness I bet you are so glad to have such big strong boys to help you. I can't wait until my 3 grand boys are as strong as yours!

Hello Peggy
Another day in HH Paradise - good job nobody/nothing got lost :))

Just wondering exactly what you say to their very rested Mums and Dads when they ring to ask how things are going?

Would it include 'What day are you coming to take them home'????

Take care

You just crack me up every time I visit and see the goat all dressed up. You talk about your animals like they are your kids. I didn't grow up around farms so it is fun to see a glimpse of all the hard work I avoided.

What a blast they must be having!! LOL they look a bit hungry after all that running and chasing and pen changing! I had to laugh at the picture of the maternity pen. She looks completly bent out of shape that you are taking her picture... Like she was wearing an ill fitting bikini or somthing! LOL

Wicked Witch. Hmmmmmm..... It's a tough job, but someone has to do it.

How challenging the task of herding boys. lol

Aww what a fun time. I bet you are having a time feeding that group of boys!

I enjoyed the goat shuffle. The boys seemed to have fun. Herding animals is a skill to be learned.

I bet goats will follow you anywhere if you have a pail of feed!

I think all boys are pyros at heart, don't you? hehe.
