    Hi everybody :)

    I feel like I haven't been on here in forever, I've been really busy. I'm back home, I ended up spending 2 1/2 months in India when I had only planned for 1! I'm glad to be home though. Our new house is finished, so it was nice spending the remaining winter in a warm house. It took me a looooonnnnggggg time to get used to the cold, lol

    Kidding has been going well and we have around 20-some babies right now, mostly girls. Still have 5 or 6 does left to kid.

    Mom and I decided to cut down our herd from 3 breeds just to one breed, so we're selling off our Oberhasli and Saanens and just concentrate on our LaManchas. We've added a new doe kid from the Mint*Leaf herd in IN and we'll be getting another LaMancha buckling from the Altrece herd in AZ to get more new genetics into the herd. I really can't wait :D

    And two final pieces of great news. We're finally going to get our new barn built this year and get things set up for a micro dairy!

    And finally, I got accepted into Iowa State this fall for my undergraduate studies! I'll be majoring in Animal Science and Pre-Veterinary Medicine, so *hopefully* in 8 years I'll finally get to be a vet!

    Hope all has been well with everybody, other than facebook I'm pretty behind on what's been going on here on the forum with everybody :p
