Dad and Lisa came to visit yesterday. Look what they brought!
My dad made this goat milking stand and stool so I wouldn't have to stoop on the ground to milk June.
It makes a huge difference! Here I am pretending to milk for a picture. I put a collar on June so I could walk her from the pasture to the garagebarn, but today she jerked out of my hand and followed right along behind me. I think she was trying to tell me she's a big girl and can walk by herself!
The goatie kids went outside today. Elmer needed his crate back, so they had to go to the garagebarn. They're doing great! Both eating well and getting the hang of the bottle!
The lambs are growing fast!! They really seem to like it outside. Here's rammy boy with a milk mustache!
I can't reach the hay!!
They're really starting to nibble on the hay.
I'm getting the hang of fitting bottling and milking in my chore time. Waking up on time in the morning is a constant struggle for me, but I manged ok this morning. The afternoons are no problem because I get to take my time and enjoy the chores.
Oh, I did lose a chicken today. My white laying hen. I found her on the nest box barely alive. Apparently she'd prolapsed her cloaca trying to lay an egg. :(
Well, time to go bottle the babies before bed. Goodnight!
