Milking

15 May

Despite finding out what is wrong with my kids and being able to treat it, there’s nothing I can do for the kids who have already had neurological damage.  That means I had to have Clover’s babies put down.

Now I’m milking again.

I was surprised how much milk Clover had because she didn’t have hardly any when the kids were born.

Of course, since I’m milking, Cinnamon decided she was going to be milked also.

Athena was not quite as happy about that.

But she’ll be fine, and I’m probably going to need that milk for June kids.

To Make Lotion

24 Apr

I’ve had a couple of people ask when I’m going to have lotion back in my online store.  In order to make lotion, I need goat milk.  I have one thing preventing me from getting milk.

Athena is really not quite ready to give it up.  Notice how she’s trying to cut her mom off and stop her from walking.

I’m sure Cinnamon would be willing, but I think it will be a couple more weeks before I try to wean her (or just shut her in overnight).

Then I’ll get to make lotion again!

Until then, all I have left is past it’s sell by date, which means it’s all mine!

Hopefully the Last Snow

19 Apr

Yesterday was another day of rain, freezing rain and snow.  It was an all day event.

By evening, the storm was passing by.  Most of the snow was even melting.

Of course that has left us horribly muddy again.

Look at that poor baby’s legs.

Hopefully, the forecast is correct because it looks like this might be our last snow.

That would be good because we are horribly far behind in getting started with the spring planting season.
