  1. Hi all! Just thought I'd share some pics of our babies. It's been a minute since I've been on. This summer has been so busy for us, I hate busy, but it is what it is. Looking forward to fall and winter where we slow down a bit! We're almost done with getting our new pasture(s) fenced. I'm excited to move sheep and goats to the new pasture, it's all untouched forest browse, they're going to love it. Then we will work on the current pens getting them cleaned up and all the logs mulched.

    We've got 3 girls confirmed bred and due the first week of December. 3 others were bred and were losing them at the time of blood draws. One had gotten sick and I expected that, but the other two I don't know what happened. Well, one came into heat a couple weeks ago then everyone else decided they'd all come into heat at the same time. Our 2 lovely bucks decided to start jumping fences (first time for everything huh) and now we have 6 girls due end of Feb and we're going to have to do some DNA testing. Yay. LOL.

    We lost a sweet buckling due to enterotoxemia. Again, first time for everything...and...it's 2020. Ugh. But this week we were contacted to bring back a kid (but not a kid anymore) we sold last year...I had almost kept him but ended up selling. Now they are giving him back to us and I'm very excited about him since we loved his sire and his dam is our best udder. So I guess it all works out.

  10. This is Jacob. He's like a carbon copy of his sire, but smaller and red vs blue lol. Thankfully he only lives just over an hour away currently. He's an F1 mini.
