• Heidi’s Doeling ~ 2010

    Halloween Day dawned bright and sunny for Heidi's due date.  She was right on target last year, and looked to be headed that way this year too.  She had been patiently waiting these last few days, and looked much like a beached (but content) white whale chewing her cud in the shade of the hackberry tree.  She spent much of this morning the same way, gradually ending up standing in the shade of the barn.

  • Moon’s Doeling ~ 2010

    Woo hoo!  We did it!  Our first official full-blooded dairy goat doe kid.  With seven out of seven being born as bucklings this past Winter and Spring, I wondered when our first doeling would arrive.  In fact, I have actually heard from a goat-friend this year that some bucks can be known for throwing high percentages of either buck or doe kids.  Holy milk buckets!  We have had a good ratio from Jack with the Spanish and Boer nannies though, so I wasn't too worried.

  • Boys of Fall ~ 2010

    The goats are so lovely going into Autumn, it's my favorite time of the year.  Our original Spanish nannies are settled in their third year here on the sandy hillside. Handsome Jack and AP no doubt look forward to being Kings of the Forest again soon with their does. I have to smile at these two billy goats, who became fast friends when they were turned out with each other last year. The younger bucks in the field are tolerated, but Jack and AP truly seem to enjoy each others' company. Oiva Joulipukki will certainly look his part this season shaking his scimitar horns as the Christmas Goat. His two spotted comrades, Leah and Heidi's bucklings, can also be seen on the For Sale page! Be sure to visit the Dairies page, to see updated glamour shots of the Sugarplums.
