Hello and Good-Byes

25 Jun

Well, we’re done waiting on Bambi.  I figured yesterday morning when I saw her separating herself from the herd that she would kid around 5pm.  Why 5pm?  Well, that’s when I was supposed to be at the farmer’s market.

My mom texted me at 4:56 that “no one is here”  which translated into baby number one is here.  I was a bit confused at first.

Then it was quiet.  No texts until I finally asked.  She wasn’t sure.  It turns out that she did exactly like last year.  She had one big baby girl!  This one might be the reason I had to put a disclaimer out there when I said I was only keeping one goat this year.

After the market and meeting Bambi’s little girl and milking, I sorted off all my January/March kids and Hazel.


This morning, my awesome neighbor from Broken Barn Farm came and we loaded them on her trailer and she took them to the sale for me.


It seems a much more manageable number of goats now that there are fifteen fewer on the farm.  Well, except we now have 18 June babies running around and two more girls to kid the first week of July.

Just a reminder, there’s still time to join this week’s Friday’s Hunt.  The items are at the top of the side bar.  Next week might be the perfect time to join in because we’ll be starting a new round of the alphabet.

      I do enjoy the hellos on the farm. Even the good-byes mean success.

    Daisy is an absolute doll! Does this mean you’re thinking of keeping her? 😃 That would be sooo nice!
