Change of Plans

We were going to add quail to the mix today, but I was made an offer I couldn't refuse--rabbits. So I'm going to be skipping the quail and going for rabbits since they've been on my "want" list a bit longer.

In goat news, we are still waiting for Tease to kid.

Coming Soon...

We have some new critters coming to the homestead (barring any freak occurrence that keeps it from happening). Stay tuned. This is one of two critters I've been wanting for a while now. I'm so excited!

And to hold you over until then, here's Tease being extra miserable this pregnancy.

Goat Kid Update!

With the weather being as warm as it has been, we've been taking advantage by cleaning out the raised beds, starting seeds, and staying as busy as possible. However, I thought we'd give a brief update on the goat kids.

The Snubian (saanen x nubian) doelings are growing so well. I can't wait to see how the perform on the milk stand. I love these girls.

Our first Nubian kid was born this week. She's still in the gangly stage, but I know she'll end up being a beautiful goat, and hopefully a great milker.

I love her coloration. She has a single moon spot on her tail. Just a beautiful girl.
