    PSHEW- we are home from our lil shopping spree!

    We left Thursday night around 8 pm- met a lady that bought two of our does in CT, then continued on down to PA to drop off Aiden, my one year old, with my mother :) , we got there around 4 am on Friday. We hit the road around 7 am and continued on down to our first stop in Louisburg NC, we got there around 12:30 pm Friday, then onto our next stop in Stokesdale NC arriving around 4:30 pm. We got back on the road around 6:30 and drove back north towards MD until about 1:00am on Saturday morning. We grabbed a hotel room for a few hours, and we were back on the road Saturday morning around 7am. We arrived at our next stop outside of Elkton MD and swapped with that breeder, they bought a buck from us, and we bought three does from them. (OH and met my mother and picked up Aiden!) Got back on the road around 11am, hit major traffic in NY and FINALLY made it home around 7pm on Saturday night. So all in all we did about 1600 miles in 48 hours, pshew! What a trip!

    So onto the important stuff! Our new additions!

    Thanks everyone! :greengrin:

    And well we DID sell off quite a few of our herd members before bringing all these guys in- We sold 4 junior does 2 senior does and a 2 bucks, soooo :) ALMOST an even trade off.
    (Oh and we sold some horses too! :horse: and now one of the horse paddocks and run-in sheds is slated to become more goaty space once the snow melts :ROFL: )

    We have everyone pretty spaced out for kidding, with the most being 5 kidding in one month.

    We are going on milk test this year too, so that should add to the insanity! :help: :ROFL:

    how do you get all of them shown? must be crazy to try to keep up with it - unless you dont show.

    Well we started showing last year- and we plan to show even more this year, but not every single goat here will be shown. We will pick and choose our show string and take our senior does we think our best- a few of our bucks will probably make appearances, and kids born this year we hope to keep will probably hit a show or two.

    The whole family is involved with the goats- so that helps- hubby started it all actually, then my step son is turning 11 and thinks the goats are a blast, so we get it done :)
