Notes Around the Farm

9 Sep

Perdita is looking forward to becoming a milking doe.  I keep telling her she has to wait until after she has a baby next year.  The way she likes food, I do think it will not be a problem to train her for milking.

Daisy is silly. She was always up in a tree as a baby, and now that she’s six, nothing has changed.

The bucks like scratching too.  They have to just use the fence though because they don’t have a fancy gate to rub against.

Freddie is looking good.


I need to call ISU and see what I need to do to get him an appointment to be wethered.  I’d like to wait until later in the fall when we don’t have so many flies.

Haley spends a lot of time in the barnyard begging for sweet feed.  That girl. She’s lucky I adore her.


My bratty Ostara.  I really hope I can get her to tame down because it really is easier to work with them and keep them healthy when I can handle them.


I’m hoping the garden settles down and I can focus on selling kids soon. Rosie has really taken her role of big sister seriously.  She’s really going to miss Shellie when she leaves the farm.

A bonus of Rosie just because she’s beautiful.


Maisie is also beautiful.  The fact that Rosie and Maisie are so red tells me that they have pretty good copper levels right now.

That’s a good thing!
