Hello everyone! It’s been a while, but I wanted to update you on the happenings on the farm.
Our first 2 babies of 2020 were born on February 3rd to Effie. Those who have followed me for a while know that Effie is our special goat. For those who are new, Effie was born in 2016 and her mom wouldn’t nurse her. My mom raised her on a bottle. So, she is our baby. Anyway, she birthed a doe and a buck. This is her 3rd set of kids, all of which have been a doe and a buck. The birth went well and the kids are great. We actually bought a baby monitor so we can see them from our house. We’ll use it to keep watch on our expectant does as their time to birth gets closer.
It is raining a lot here. We tramp through mud to do our chores. We have started our seeds for our garden, but it looks like we’re in for a lot of rain this year. I hope we can have a good garden, but we need a break in the rain.
Our next doe is due to give birth next week, February 13th. I’ll try to keep you posted. Have a healthy and blessed week!
