First Of The Month - August

I'm joining Jan at Murrieta 365 for her First of the Month meme all this year. Here are the ground rules per her site: "The goal is to capture one thing repeatedly on the first of each month. It can be a landscape, a person, an animal, a project; whatever your focus is, is fine. It can even be a record of where you are each First of the Month."



Not really too much new to report on Miss Daphne this month. She is five months old now, growing like a weed, and her favorite pastime is eating! I'm going to have to add a couple more links to her collar before too long.


She still wants to be right by my side whenever I'm down in the pasture, which makes picture taking somewhat of a challenge. No matter how nicely I asked, she just would not jump up on the steps behind her for a photo session. ;-)


Here, she is trying to figure out how to get the chain off the gate so she can get out! LOL!!


I really love seeing the goats out in the pasture during the day.



I'm still working with Daphne every day - making her lead, getting her used to having her udder touched and just lovin' on her lots and lots, which is very easy to do because she is such a sweetie! I really love my goats and feel very fortunate to have such nice girls. :-)


Linking up with Rural Thursday too.

Cute! Do they eat those (yucca?) plants on the bottom shot?

Nancy,
Yes, surprisingly, they do eat them!

Neat photos. I get to milk goats again this coming weekend. One is a beginner too.

Better, tender shoots at the top? Kind of like the grass is greener on the other side of the fence? LOL

She is so cute!! Looks like she is quite a little love!! Do you plan to breed her this fall if she's big enough?

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Look at her working over that gate! You're going to have to keep an eye on her ;-)

She's a doll. You are going to have to train her to sit and stay. :) xo

I sure hope it takes her a while to figure out the gate's chain!

Wow! They're eating those yucca! That scenery, by the way, makes me miss Arizona! I used to live in Tucson.

She looks great. What gets me is that even those girls I work with and handle and "train" to be milking goats are sometimes the worst. Then someone I didn't plan on milking is just awesome! There's no figuring those girls out. :-)

Candy, it's so important to have something you enjoy. The tone of this post reminds me of my Mom. She uses the same lovely words when she tells me about her Southdowns!

Smartest creatures. Bet they could track criminals too, tho' the cops wouldn't be seen dead handling one!
