On Sunday, Sept 14th at 2pm we will be hosting a blood drawing clinic for anyone that would like to learn how to draw blood for testing. The clinic will be held at Wags Ranch and will involve drawing every goat over six months of age in my entire herd for their annual testing through BioTracking. Sarah McCraw of Mac's Rainbow will be doing the drawing and I will be doing the holding. While it is possible to do the blood draw as a single person operation we have found that is much easier to have two people involved. If you are interested in attending please let me know ahead of time.
Last weekend I picked up a buckling from the Tahoma herd up in WA. I liked Qwillerian but then I came across a chance to acquire Finnius in trade for Qwill and I jumped at it.
Finnius looks like a buck we had several years ago - Poppy Patch Rio the Rebel, except that Finnius has a little flashier markings and blue-eyes.
The does seemed to approve of him and so far he has been a fairly cooperative little guy to deal with. We are looking forward to adding his outstanding genetics to our herd.
Jane is a wife, mother, critter-wrangler and works full-time off the farm as well.
