Like clock work Rita and her daughter Itty-Bitty Blues came into heat today. They are the last two does that will be bred this year and I am going to wait until their next heat cycle so that they will be my over winter milkers. And so that I can write about their births for Farm & Ranch Living Magazine.
We are really looking forward to seeing the coming crop of babies and have planned to retain quite a few of them. If you see a particular kidding on the schedule and would like to make a reservation please let me know.
Last Friday morning I fell and hurt my left arm. My friend Sarah came and did a couple of milkings for me right after my injury and Bekah had been helping out with the milking a bit since then. Some of my does are quite picky about who milks them and Roni apparently did NOT want Bekah's cold little hands on her this morning!
This was the first snow fall the weanling's have ever seen and initially only Confetti was willing to step out into the white stuff. Goldrush & Levana were quite content to stay in their nice warm house and voice their displeasure at the cold stuff.
