Frankly speaking.................................beat the heat!

Wow, it's hard to believe it has been so long since my last post!  It has been pretty warm here, with temperatures hovering around the 90 degree mark.  We are lucky to be living in the mountains, where the trees provide lots of shade and the wench makes sure that we have fans blowing all over the place to move the stagnant air.  We get plenty of fresh water and the builder knocks down trees (black birch is our favorite) so we have good greens to eat. When it's really hot, like today (it says 100 on the porch of the house), there is a special treat to cool us off - WATERMELON!!!!!

Of course, not all goats know how to share.  Like for instance:

He wouldn't let anyone else have any.  He just stuck his big old head right inside that ice cold melon and went to town.

Even the babies couldn't get any and had to resort to scraps and seeds on the ground.

Well, I am sure we'll get treats tonight, too because that's just the kind of place we live in.  In the meantime, Norman is looking pretty smug:

He has watermelon juice all over his beard.  I hope it gets sticky. HA!

The wench tells me that the spring clip is back from Echoview Fiber Mill and it is pretty nice.  Once I have a chance to asses it myself, I'll be posting a shameless self-promotion.  So stay tuned.  And thanks for reading Frankly Speaking!
