The Last Graze of Fall

Winter will soon be here and there is not much left for us to graze on. We are mostly eating hay and the treats the  publicist gives us from the male person's garden.  It's disappointing but that is the life of a goat. It's a good thing we like hay! The publicist buys us some tasty hay too. Yum!

We don't go out for many grazes in the winter because there just isn't much to eat so when the publicist let us out yesterday we knew it was probably the last one for a long time. It wasn't a really sunny day but it was still nice to run around and see the sights. The kids really had fun because they haven't had too many grazes.

We all head over to the riverbank because the view is so pretty. Isn't that what  you would do?

Then we ran down to munch on the bushes in the gulley. There were still some yummy green leaves.

Mallory ran up and found a log to nibble. Mmmmm, bark.

Jillian scratched her head on an old tree. I know from experience that this feels really, really good.

It was fun for all of us to be out.

A chicken even joined in the graze. I just can't seem to shake those hens. Harumph!

I hope you enjoyed seeing our graze as much as we enjoyed going on our graze.

Tomorrow: It's AbbyDay and she is going to have a special message for you.


  1. My basil froze two days ago. I am so sad to see it go.

    I wonder if goats like basil? I guess there's only one way to find out :)

  2. the last so sad!!!! but will they still be able to play on the spools in the winter?

  3. I'm glad all the goaties are making the best of the last of the grazing.

  4. I can't wait to learn more about what comes next on the feeding front for you guys.

  5. Oh you poor things, no more grazing this year!

  6. I feel sorry for you,we still have plenty of grass here,to bad UPS doesn't take that. I'd send you some.

  7. I have heard about places where it gets cold and there is no grazing for a while, mercy that would be hard!! We can graze on stuff all year, some stuff does die in the winter here but there is still a lot left to eat that doesn't die ... if you want to come eat some of ours we will share :O)...

    Though it has been cold here, well cold is relative you know..its been cold to us Texas goats.. and wet .. someone turn offfffff the water please!!!!!!!

  8. It's nice that they were able to get out for a nice long graze!

  9. Carolyn - the publicist gave me basil once and I loved it!

    jaz - we play on our spools all year round.

    Daisy - oh trust me. We always make the best of everything...

    Margo - we always eat. No matter what.

    Pooba - I know. It is so sad.

    Da Bean - that is so nice of you!

    Texan - wow. warm all year round? No snow? I think I would like that.

    blueviolet - it sure was!

  10. Thank you for sharing your "Graze Day!" I, too, enjoy a good head scratch against a tree. Sometimes that's the only way to satisfy an itch.

    And I don't think I ever knew goats enjoyed bark!


Maaaaaa away....
