Baby Watch

Feels odd to not be on baby watch this time of year. However, is nice to not be up in the middle of the night while also finishing up the semester! First kids are due on June 6th. That will be Lemongrass.
Edith and Emma were born last year about this time.

Wrestling Daisy

So many times I wish I had a video running in the barn yard. I've been doctoring Daisy for mastitis. She is just 2 years old and not bred, so it is unusual for her to have mastitis, but it happened. This meant I had to hold her while inserting medicine into her udder. Note Daisy is about 60# and I weight slightly less than 100#. I had hold of her pretty well as she is trying to bite my ear and of course trying to get away. Somehow, she jumped and we fell backwards. I'm now laying on my back with a goat upside down on top of me. I know if I let go, I won't catch her again and the medicine has not been administered. Have you ever tried to get up off your back only using your elbows with half your weight laying on you??? Well it is not easy and actually would have been funny to watch!

Daisy is on the right. She is with Meadowsweet her twin sister.

A flash past the front door.....

A flash past the front door. An explosion of chicken feathers. Ollie runs out the backdoor barking. And the fox trots up the hill to the road with a mouthful of Speckled Sussex.

Dang, my Nemesis is back......

2018 Open Barn Event

This year's Open Barn Event is scheduled for Sunday June 24. We have late season kids being born this year, so I'm waiting until we have several on the ground for the event.

Fresh spring soaps

Well I'm back to posting.
Lots of soap curing, some new ones and also the old favorites. These need a couple more weeks before they are ready. You will be able to purchase them through my Etsy site or PM in Facebook.
