Goat Update

We sold 2 of our grown nannies last Saturday.  We got the check in the mail yesterday and they brought more than any we have sold so far, $240 each, $440 total.  We sold Miracle, a 2 year old nanny that kept loosing babies and Ivy a 10 month old nanny that took ill with iodine deficiency a few weeks ago.  Miracle was a good looking nanny that was due to kid next month, but Ivy still looked ill to me.  I am amazed they sold as well as they did.

And, here are new pics of our 3 babies.

The middle one is the billy that got such a rough start.  He is doing good now, but I could not get a good pic of him.  He would not stay put for a close up.

Today is go home early day.  Yeepee!

Baby names

I have named the new babies, Star and Stripe.  Can you guess which name goes where?  They are both ladies and doing fine.  Plus, Starvin' Marvin is improving every day.  He even runs and plays some now at 4 days old.

Yesterday, George tilled the garden.  Helen says I need to go to Powell's to buy tomato plants so I may do that today.  By Sunday, I plan to have tomatoes in the ground.  I have not decided what else I might plant.

Lost 2, Gained 2

Goats, that is.

We sold Ivy and Miracle Saturday.  Today, Holly had 2 by 5 pm.  I think they are both girls, but since I missed one last fall, I am not going out on a limb for a day or 2.  They are mostly brown and doing good, up and trying to eat.

Seven and Starvin Marvin are dong a little better.  He is nursing more now.  We gave his mama an antibiotic shot because she was not very energetic. 

Brother and Sister built some fence today.

It looks really good.

Now, we need names for the new girls.  George wants to call them all patches.  I guess we could go patches 1, 2, 3 and 4.  Or maybe Patches and then Two, Three, and Four.
