bottle kid, new "Buddy" & kidding stalls!

Well, we have a bottle kid. I have no clue what breed she is. A lady came up to us after the sale the other day and said she had bought this kid for her daughter, and then her daughter was scared of it (scared of a tiny baby goat?!? Alright. . .). She's a very sweet little goat, but she's not staying here long as I don't have a use for her and have already found her a new home (hopefully).

 Friday we went outside and noticed a scared little dog out there. He must have been a drop off. He is SO skinny and was very scared. He's already gained some weight though, and is a very sweet boy. His name is Buddy now, and I think he is a Toy Australian Shepherd.

yawn! Buddy was tired after playing with the baby goat!

On to another subject besides "rescue dogs and goats". . . progress in the new kidding barn is under way! Our does should start kidded in about 2 weeks. There will be three 10x10 box type stalls on both sides of the barn, with a 10 foot drive/walkway in the middle. So there will be a total of 6 10x10 stalls. I think it's going to turn out very neat and useable! I will try to post pictures as things progress.

Have a great day!
