I've Been Out Shopping !!

 
 
I have had an exciting day !  I have been out shopping, a little bit of retail therapy, the kind that probably isn't most peoples idea of retail therapy .....

 
My shopping needed the trailer, but I did manage to resist the temptation of being carried away.  Having said that, I came home with a full trailer, lots more than I thought I was going for !! These are just some of the gorgeous Pygmy goats I had the pleasure of meeting today, the babies in the first photo are only a week old and my cat is probably the same size....cute just isn't the word.....the mothers and the babies are all very friendly and make wonderful pets.  Most people know that I already have a Pygmy goat, called Lambsy !  He is 13 years old now, it would be fare to say he is mellowing with age.

 
Haggis and Dougal tuck into the last bale in their field, I'm hoping this is going to be the last bale of the year for them.  Its been a long winter and the grass is very slow, most of my fields are brown, with very little sign of any nice new green grass.

 
I said I had a full trailer ..... I have had a very fruitful day, two hay rings, two troughs a load of sheep hurdles and .....we were nearly full !!

 
How cute are these ..... and so friendly, they make wonderful pets for people with smallholdings, there is normally a waiting list and I can see why .....

 
Back home safe and sound after my little trip out, this little trailer is very handy, I have wanted this trailer renovated for years and it was finally done last summer, it has mesh sides which clip on, so its extra handy, my Dad has made an excellent job of the 'new look' trailer.....before I went out, I debated which trailer to take ... mind you at this rate its just as well I only took the little one ..... I only went for two hay rings and ended up with extras !
 
I think I shall be busy tomorrow ..... emptying it.

Very cute Jayne. Are they named already?

Didn't realise that Lidl had those troughs and stuff on offer this week! A solitary Swallow arrived here late yesterday afternoon - then continued west! Shirley & Robbie

Nice work Jayne, I can see more pleasure in those guys and the trailer-load, than a pair of posh shoes!

Pygmy goats are sooo cute...I am going to find some here. DO you need six-strand fencing with them (are they as naughty as other goats and escape?). :) Lisa

That'll teach you to take the trailer! Will it be beans on toast for a week now??!!
