    New girls are home and Rose was possibly bred!!!!

    New girls came home last night and instantly were part of the herd. I was so excited to see how well they acclimated and everyone took to them.

    Today, I put all the does out in the far horse peen because the farrier was coming and I don't put the tiny babies with the horses, so the girls had to move. They were so excited to be in the other pen where there is just a start of grass to munch on.

    Here are some pics from earlier today -

    Oh, I wish I had that much space fenced in for my goats. They look so happy...

    What color is Heather?

    SO cute!!

    I thought Daisy has a mohawk there for a moment, then I realized it was somebody's tail. :)

    Heather really is a pretty color.

    Woo Hoo - I remembered part of it - LOL!

    I really like these girls. They are pretty mild and love to give kisses.

    I just hope that Rose takes to her "date" with Abba today (and bred Grace to Blue today also!!)

    Cinder - that is the "summer pen" because it doesn't have any shelter or anything on it (going to do that this year) and then I have another pen about the same size that is heavily treed and has shelter for the goaties on it. They used to raise elk here.

    thanks cdtrum - gotta love Craigslist - yep - that is how we found our property.

    We were living in a house that was in the city about 8 blocks from our house when the owners decided they were going to sell it (we rent because we might move south when hubby's kids graduate - 2 more years - so we didn't want to buy) well I started panicing as we had 2 very large breed dogs and we couldn't find a house we liked that would take the dogs. Then I found this place!

    It was 185.00 a month more to live here, but it was 15 acres, only neighbors are below us, fences, horse stall, could have livestock, private beach, boat slip, all kinds of things - but we don't pay for garbage or water and electricity is alot cheaper and we use the fireplace in winter - so really the only extra we truely pay is the gas back and forth to town - but it is worth it.

    If you ever come to the Northwest, let me know - and we will have you up!
