Upon arrival, James was once again feeding and watering the chickens and goats. The boys spent time checking out all the goats. Brandon has an eye for picking those that are pregnant. He said, "Look Grandma, the goats baby is moving." I watched and sure enough, you could see the mother's side moving as the baby moved around. We called her over and ran our hands along her side to feel the baby move. Brandon had done this in the spring with Gertrude when she was expecting. He thinks it the most wonderful thing to feel the babys move while they are in their mother's womb.
On Tuesday, I told my readers that I would try to get a picture of Baby Pueblo and I was successful. Here he is.
Pueblo has always loved the boys and they love him. On Tuesday, James told Brandon that Pueblo would be traded because all of the goats at the farm were family. Surprisingly, Brandon accepted that. However, when I told Jordan, the tears flowed. James happened to come by and heard me talking to Jordan about Pueblo and informed us that Pueblo will be staying. The boys whooped with joy. Pueblo is their baby and they spent hours holding him on their laps and petting him when he was first born. The farm owners have decided to bring in some new female goats especially for Pueblo. He is going to have his own harem.
It was very cold at the farm. There's a big puddle near where we park the car and by the time we left at 5 pm, there was a thin coating of ice on it. The boys couldn't believe that it had formed while we were enjoying the animals inside the barn.
Today it's minus 3 here with a windchill factor of minus 8 Celsius. That is approximately 25 F., but feels like 17 F. Tonight it is to go down to minus 15 with the windchill factor, which will feel like about minus 6 F. And the forecast is rain, snow and sleet. What a mixture. Seems like we are to have an old fashioned winter here this year with lots of snow. Maybe it's a good thing that we are going South. January is to bring an abundance of snow.
Today I went to the drug store not far from here to mail some packages from their Post Office.
