I know, it's definitely time for a blog post! Things have been going pretty good - it's really hot here! Every evening when the milkers come back to be milked some of them are really hot, especially the big old girls - so we have to put cool water on them, which they don't care for, but it works.
The bucks are now stinky and getting yellow and worse every day. I haven't noticed any does in obvious heats yet, but they should start coming in any time... I'm waiting! There's a few does that we milked through last year that I am going to breed on their first heat this year.
Baby and Prissy are still HUGE, but they're doing surprisingly fine in the heat.
Here's some photos from the past week.
all the animals grazing close to "home" after milking,
goats in. . . the jungle?
one of the meat doe kids. . . she hid her face right when I took the picture!
This is little Berry, the Nigerian Dwarf buck. He is so small and fat, there must be something wrong with him :)! He is 2 1/2 years old and tiny. . . I guess he'll just always be short.
My brother Todahyah built a new pen for his 2 pigs - a boar and a guilt that is due in September, I think.
the pond ;),
and one of the roads in the pasture,
That's all the pictures for now. There's really not much else to update on. . . just busy with life. The little goat kid that our friend gave us, Miss Cutie Booty, is doing great! She's such a silly little goat. Now she is staying out in the stall in the day and in the bathroom (in her crate) at night.
Have a good day and stay hydrated!
