    ohhhh - I am on pins and needles - Shipper just called me - they are in Wyoming and under 800 miles from me. I swear, I am loving this shipper now that they picked up and are heading this way (had a rocky communication start - but it all worked out!) Totally reasonable prices, can track their route, and they are caring for the critters so well. They even have goats of their own so they are aware of what to do with them :)

    Oh the hours are going sooooo slow!

    Re: Almost here!

    Once you get them there and if you are totally happy with the service you should put a note in the Transport Terminal area with their contact information so that others can possibly use them :thumb:

    So how many new additions are you getting?

    Re: Almost here!

    That is a great idea - thank you Stacey. I am working with another breeder to try and get her animals moved through these people right now.

    I am getting 9 new animals - 2 bucklings, 1 buck, 1 doeling, 1 yearling, 1 FF, 3 sr. does from two different farms :)

    Ohhh I am so hoping they get here when it is still light. I need to take updated pics of everyone - even my babies from this year!

    Re: Almost here!

    I wish I was still in process of babies being born and new ones arriving instead of dealing with putting up hay, putting in new fencing and building the buck pen.

    But you can't have the fun part without the work.

    Can't wait to see pictures! :)

    I hear ya Amika.

    The worst part is - I have no where to put the hay at the moment - I have a duck sitting on a clutch right in the middle of one wall of the hay barn (stacked the hay around her) then I have the baby ducks in another corner - another Barred Rock laying a clutch (someone wants the chicks so was like FINE) and then the kittens "safe zone" - but had to get it out of my horse trailer since I will need it when the shipper gets here - Have to meet them next to the freeway because of our roads.

    Congrats! I wonder if we are using the same shipper. We are getting some sheep from Washington and we got a message he was in Wyoming then Idaho.

    Maybe not...But our shipper Ron is following a similar route. Our sheep are coming from Camas Washington to us near Duluth Minnesota. We can't wait until they arrive but I heard they don't compare to goats!!!

    I am so stoked.... I got to see everyone "in the daylight" today - and OH MY GOSH these girls are gorgeous!!! Now I "know" what wonderful animals these really really are!!! I looked at them - and looked at mine that I already had that were not "show" and "milk" lines - WOW - what a difference.

    Thank you so much to Addie and Joe at Proctor Hill Farm and Joanne at Dragonfly Farm - both in MA - Ya'all are AMAZING!!!!!!!!!
