I thought this was a cool picture of "Miss Salty" ;),
This is Wonder, doing something weird, of course.
Have a good day,

Just a quick note to say I started a page on Facebook for the goats. You can find it here. Go and "Like" us, if you want ;)!

There is a new kid on the block. . . she is about a week old, a tiny little thing. Our friend and neighbor bought a Nubian doe with 2 kids, a buckling and doeling. She was going to pull both kids and put them on the bottle. She talked us into taking the little doeling home :) - thanks Stacey ;)! Putting her on the bottle was extremely easy and the dam is doing just fine also with that.

Yesterday I made some cheese, a different kind though - it's called Paneer. It is pretty close to how I make the vinegar/easy cheese, slightly different, but then you press it for an hour. You can see the recipe here. Instead of using books as the recipe shows, I used a 10 lb can (canned food). It isn't very flavorful, but it is yummy! I made one using lemon juice (as the recipe calls for), and then another one using apple cider vinegar (because one of my brothers does not handle lemon well). I might try regular white vinegar next time.
Well I think it is definitely time for an update. . . first off, here's a late Happy 4th of July to you all!
We had a busy day yesterday watching soccer, barbecuing, fireworks, dancing, staying up late, and of course milking goats and feeding all the animals ;).
In one of my last posts I posted about Rosie and her hurt leg, and how I thought the treatment was working. Well, it worked! She is pretty much all the way back to normal and we let her go out to pasture today. NOTHING else was working, so I am very glad this worked. What we did was mix DMSO in some Fura-Zone cream (we dumped her milk for several days), rubbed it all over her hurt knee (which she really hated, especially the first time!), wrapped it in plastic wrap to create some heat, vet wrap and then tape. We left it on for 12 hours. After the first treatment, it didn't really seem better. 24 hours later we did a second treatment, and after that one it was obviously MUCH better. So we decided to do a 3rd treatment and she's all the way better. Praise the Lord. . .
