new buck!

For an update. . . well, we've been busy, as usual! We got a new Alpine buck, thank you to Abigail at Camo Ranch for this handsome boy! He is a yearling buck and his name is Summer Gold Lord O The Dance, aka "Dancer". His great-grandpa, CH *B Willow Run Chevalier Ruffian was the highest ever selling goat at the ADGA Spotlight Sale - $16,000! (By the way, there's no way I'd pay that much for a goat, LOL!). Ruffian's dam, SGCH 2*M Willow Run Armand Rishona, was a beautiful doe and a 4 time National Champion.

So, all that to say, Dancer should give us some nice kids that'll put a lot of milk in the pail!


I *tried* to shear the white llama girl the other day. . . it did not go so well! I was using scissors. I got a lot of her matted hair on her neck off, which helps. And then I was done for the day... no more! It is definitely not a pretty hair cut and there is still a lot more that needs to be cut off, especially her barrel. All that and the other llama will have to wait till another day, and I think I will use clippers instead of scissors.

Friday there is a local auction, and we went to it this time. There just happened to be a working, nice pair of the big Oster clippers that are so expensive! The only thing wrong with them is a part of the blade is broken, but it'll work just fine without that and it can always be fixed. So anyway, I won them for $17.50!

trying to shear the llama....

Well, I better finish this up. A big load of Alfalfa/Orchard grass (1st cutting) hay is suppose to be here almost any minute. If you would like some hay, it's beautiful hay and is $6 a bale. For more info, email or call me (918-598-4007)! Thanks!

Have a good day!


P.S. - Happy Mothers Day to all you moms out there!
