While the weather has
been so cold and snowy, I've been taking the Honeysuckle to the goats
rather than the goats to the honeysuckle. They don't get quite as much
nutrition out of armload deliveries, but Artemesia still prefers the
couch-potato approach. After all, she's been eating so much hay to feed
her babies that she's a bit unsteady on her feet on uneven ground and
doesn't feel like reaching up in search of climbing vines.
To further spoil my
herd, I decided to cook up their carrots and butternuts on the coldest
morning, adding a handful of rolled oats for extra carbs.
Unfortunately, even after draining the soup, Artemesia still turned up
her spoiled nose and required me to go home for an uncooked version.
Lucy ate the discarded goodies while my pregnant doe happily crunched
away on her usual cold breakfast. So much for hot mash!
