A Homecoming of Sorts

19 Nov

If you’ve been visiting here for a long time, you know I started my goat herd with five Saanen girls.  One of them was Cutie.

She had a daughter named Pam, who was such a spoiled diva that she earned the title of Princess Pam.

Pam

In March, 2013, she tried having triplets, but it was not very good outcome.  We lost the first baby and Pam died of a uterine infection.  The other two babies were really weak, and I was happy to send them to my neighbor (I was having lots more weak kids that needed extra care).

Tansy and Tucker

My neighbor had Tansy (renamed Scarlet) for several years before losing her.  Now as she has decided to sell her herd, I’ve brought a Tansy/Scarlet granddaughter back to Eden Hills.  Meet Cupid.

Cupid

She was born on April 14, 2018 (which makes her three days younger than Antigone, perfect companions to stay in the Love Shack together for a while).

As you can see, she has Nubian bred into her, so I’m hoping she’ll be another good milking doe.  She is about half dairy and half boer.

Pluto, the Llamaslayer

22 Jul

This is Pluto.  He might look cute and sweet and cuddly, but don’t let that innocent look fool you.

Pluto

He’s really…a llamaslayer!  He’s captured Odie!

Pluto on Odie

Maybe he’s decided to slay her since she was the villain in Antigone’s fairy tale.

“I have killed the llama! The barnyard is safe again.” -Pluto

Whatever the reason, he’s slain the evil llama.

Oops.  I guess she was just scratching her neck.

“Hey, kid?  Is she looking at me?” asked Tony.

“Yep,” Pandora replied.  “She sure is.”
