The First Graze of Spring

The sun actually came out for a little bit yesterday and the publicist let us out for a graze.
We hadn't been out for one in so long we forgot what to do!
But soon we found ourselves over by the big weed bush.

Abby and Nora used it to scratch their heads and rub their horns.

I used it to itch my head.
A good branch does wonders for an itchy head!

Then we had a bark eating fest.
Mmmmm, bark.
Sarah and I did some synchronized bark eating.

Do you see Pumpkin the Farm cat in the background? He was out enjoying the sun too.
Sarah really liked her piece of bark.

Nora was a big bark eater too.

She tried two different kinds.

Smart goat!
Even Abby chewed a bit of bark. 

Fiber is good for growing kids!

After all that activity we went back to our pen.
I was exhausted!

I lay down in the sun and took a nap.
Grazing is HARD work.


  1. I agree....grazing is hard work. All that chewing! Now I'm hungry for bark!

  2. Sounds like ya'll had a great day!

  3. Hey, I had shredded wheat for breakfast--that is sorta like bark. :)

  4. It looks like it was a perfect day for going out to chew some bark and scratch heads and horns! Glad you had some sunshine.

  5. I know the feeling. What a great day it was, for me, too. You are all very lucky goats to have someone get the bark for you, so you don't have to strip the trees, yourself. I hope you thanked the publicist... Come visit when you can.

  6. I am so glad that all of your snow is gone and you can graze the way you deserve. It looks like everyone had a fabulous snack.

  7. Our goat loves bark too and has taught the donkeys to eat bark. They have eaten every piece of bark off every stick of wood on the farm. We were hoping for some kids. Will be back tomorrow to check.

  8. teddy scratches her face on my boxwoods. glad to see you are enjoying your good weather!

  9. I know you goats love it, Pricilla, but I am just not feeling the bark. I am wondering if Pumpkin found anything tasty, like a mouse or a fat, juicy bug.

  10. You're lucky. It looks so dry there. We have mud up the wazoo. And believe me, you do NOT want mud up your wazoo......! ;)

  11. We humans like to nap after a good feast as well.

  12. I would be very tired after a meal of bark too!

  13. That looked like a great day of grazing and basking in the sunshine!


Maaaaaa away....
