Clover Blackboer

29 Feb

Clover is one of the goats who has most struggled with the copper deficiency.  It’s impacted more of her kids than any other goat on the farm.  I thought I was going to lose her last spring after she had her babies, but she did manage to recover.  This winter has been hard on her, and she’s lost weight until I finally added her to the greenhouse a few weeks ago.

This morning, she was really weak, and I knew it was time to say good-bye.

I will miss you,  Clover.

A Tricky Walk

28 Feb

Most times, the goats can travel in pasture with no problems.  But with the bit of snow that was left in pasture, it made it tricky walking in some places.


Luckily, Penelope didn’t fall into the ditch.

Oopsie Baby Number Two

27 Feb

Yesterday, I got a text from my mom telling me she thought Blaze was going to have her kids.  When I got home, she was definitely showing signs of labor.


In the evening, she had one adorable little girl.

Now, I was expecting two big bucks to name Deuce and Trace.  I couldn’t name this cutie patootie Deuce, but I need something to count my oopsie babies, so welcome 2TC (pronounce toot-see) to the farm.

Now I can sleep all night..for a few nights!
