The Weather Goat

Up in the mountains of Southern Oregon the Old Wives are saying it is going to be a long, dry, warm fall. This is something to do with the orange belly bands on the woolly caterpillars, and the coats on the horses. But we don't live in Southern Oregon. And we don't go by the Old Wives.

We go by Jammies, and Jammies right now has the undercoat of a Great Pyrenees living on the Glacier of the Pico de Aneto so we are telling you if you didn't do it already, get your extra hay in right away because the cold weather is coming and fast.

It absolutely makes my day when I see an update of life on the farm! I am spending too much time on this site--hope my boss doesn't find out. I will be sure to heed Jammies warning even though I live far away from Washington. I'm due for a new coat anyway.

Here in New England my goat boys are little woolies and the chilly weather is already here. It's going to be a cold winter, coast to coast.

Those are Woolly Boogers, not mere caterpillars. We've been seeing lots - and then that really special white one with the heart on its bum. Methinks Jammies is correct, as we ALWAYS trust Woolly Boogers here. What do they know in Southern Oregon anyway?
