    Ok - these are by NO MEANS the best pics - but everyone is settling in and getting acclimated - so i wasn't worrying about "posing" so please bear with me.

    We had an exciting 24 hour, starting on Friday afternoon. Last June, I sold a Yearling FF bred doe, as pregnant. When she delivered I KICKED myself in the hiney for selling her. Her name is Selle Valley Dobie and she was bred to my Abba. Dobie is also a doe out of my Fancy - who I [wub]

    Anyway, the family that I sold her to, along with another goat, had to get rid of them, and asked if I would like her back WITH her doeling out of Abba from last year AND Dobie is bred back to Abba for June babies from Abba for this year!!!!

    So, incase you do not remember Dobie - here she is

    Selle Valley HNK Dobie – waddles - doe

    Then – to top it all off – I was chit chatting with Addie, from Proctor Hill Farm in MA, on Friday morning (like 48 hours ago) and I was talking about what she had planned for next year and what not. She started showing me some of the kids that were born this year and which ones had what I was looking for to look at some breedings for next year. Well, she said – why don’t you take this boy … cause if you don’t I am going to end up keeping him myself as a buckling – but with what you have coming in …
    I told her that I was having 3 flown in on Saturday morning to seattle and I just couldn’t make another trip to Seattle so soon ….. she said – what if I can get them on the same flight …WHAT ….. so we looked and sure enough, we COULD get them on the SAME EXACT flight into Seattle as my Laurel Haven kids … so I said, well if you can get the health cert in time – lets do it (thinking there was NO WAY she could get it all arranged and the kid on the flight in less than 24 hours…. NO WAY). 3 hours later – she caught me on messenger ….. ok – health cert is DONE, flight is BOOKED, you can use my kennel – just send back – OHHH and I am putting this doeling in the kennel ALSO ….. WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So introducing my other two new additions to the farm that I picked up yesterday in seattle!!!!

    Proctor Hill Farm San Juan – buckling

    You should have seen the airport. In Seattle, you pick up cargo right next to the carousel where everyone gets their luggage ---- she they bring the first load of kennels – which was mostly dogs and then Moya and Sunrise… everyone was like –SOMEONE SHIPPED A GOAT … and were looking and pointing…. I was like yah – actually that is only one kennel – I have THREE!!!! LOL! Then they were like Look at the Pygymy’s – ahhh NO pygmy are MEAT goats – these are dairy …. So of course that started a huge conversation in the airport as to WHY someone would possibly ship in goats when you can buy them down the road – hahahahaha . And the poor girl that worked in cargo had so many questions that she did NOT SHUT UP for 30 minutes while we were waiting for them to get to the cargo area – it was hilarious!!!

    Anyway – so here is to a new herd, a new start, and lots of gorgeous babies next year!!!!

    I will have full pedigrees on the website shortly!

    Thank you again to everyone who allowed me to bring these new additions home, and the old additions back!

    Yah - I am TOTALLY stoked about the new lines - LOTS of CV and Sugar Creek!!!! And Promisedland! Woo HoO! Not sure if you all heard but Sharpie (my napi's sire) now resides at NCPromised Land - well he went to his first ever show a couple weekends ago as a 6 year old and took a Grand and a reserve!!! I was stoked. They think he should be able to finish this year - and it being his first year of showing - I am totally stoked!

    Napi has his *S and is dam is an 8*D!!! And hopefully boxwood will get her star this year!! The extended pedigree on all these kids is to die for!!! Moya is SOOO exceptionally feminine and same with the doeling from Addie.

    Damnit... I guess that means I have to just visit my future goat-baby-daddy... Not treat him like a souvenir and bring him home.

    You're really no fun, you know? ;)

    I sense some fine-type of "You may not leave the premises with ANY animals!"

    ... I sadly agree to your terms.
