More Snow has fallen
Once again we can only be patient and wait for the Black, Gray and White of winter to set us free. Many of my fellow goat friends are running low on feed and on the edge of our seats as we all are expecting goat-kids and lambs to begin to arrive soon. Some have already begun to place hooves on the ground. but mother nature is not going to make it easy on any of us this year it seems.
Facing another overcast cold day we will be placing the second round bale of hay in with our Navajo flock and hope that they will make it three weeks as they did with the last one. We have decided to do the same for the Doe's in hopes to keep a few of the small bales on hand for feeding while mothers are in bonding pens when the time arrives. Glenn and I will set them this afternoon and mark the calender.
The cows are beginning to show their size as it seems that Fozzy has successfully covered the girls and we should have three calves at least this year. I anticipate that the first one will be born some time next month if I my observations were correct. Photo's will be forth coming.
Our web page is coming along slowly but it takes a lot of time and patients to build and with out a hand book to know exactly what I am doing so far I have not crashed the entire thing or foolishly deleted it.
Look in on us from time to time, once the mountains of snow recede we will be able to proceed with our on going fence project, moving of the buildings plans and advertising all the babies we will have for sale this year.
