Sorry friends, it was a crazy week or so... but look!
Not only does our farm have a new name, it now has a beautiful new logo designed by my talented graphic designer friend Sarah Elder. We LOVE it. I think I will get t-shirts printed! And in case you haven't seen it, I made a Facebook page for the farm.
...are getting huge. I can't wait to get them outside with the rest of the flock. Waiting for warmer weather.
Luc is a handsome lad!
Annabelle thought she might get milk from my nose!
And when my friend Jackie was here doing chores on Sunday , she found naughty Geoff inside the carriage shed where the pig pen is!
Helping himself to snacks...
and standing on hemlock siding (the granary is being completely renovated!)
He has snuck in through the pig entrance, then hopped over the board blocking half the doorway.
Jackie shooed him out again...
...he took his sweet time...
...but off he went!
Meanwhile, Buttercup and Redford got a bit of cuddle time in the barn.
While Emerson preferred being inside on the couch!
But he was back outside again today...
...surveying his domain from atop the goats' hay feeder!
Yesterday Genny and Bambi came inside to the new kidding pens in the carriage shed, leaving Geoff and Kevin to cry over their absence. Daphne is down in the lower barn next to Penny and the triplets. All three does are going to pop their kids within the next two to three weeks and yes, I am stressed out about it. But I hope all will go well!
The triplets are doing great. Here are Annabelle and Rosie enjoying some hay. They are down to one small bottle a day now and that will probably end this weekend. Sigh... my babies are growing up. Eight weeks old this coming Saturday.
Annabelle and Rosie, with Luc just behind Rosie, and Daphne and Penny behind that. They were out in the chicken run getting some fresh air today.
Daphne... I'm really not sure when she'll give birth She looks slim in this pic but I assure you, she is not!
This shows her girth a bit better. My goatkeeper friends think she'll just have one!
Luc and his Mama.
And let's not forget this fellow..
...dear old Tristan!
Cross your fingers for safe deliveries for all the kids.
Ooops! Almost forget the little video I took today!
