Wednesday Feb 27
The February kids are all here, and boy there were a LOT of them! 15 kids from 5 does! Lady Grace finally graced the farm with doelings and the first ever 6th generation purebred doelings on the place. One of them is for sale and the other long awaited girl will be staying here.
I bred to take a break in March so we can get the kids settled and gear up for the next group coming in April. We have some rather comical 1st generation airplane/pinnochio ears on Sugar's quads, but bouncing around with all those spots it is endearing to watch. Brown Sugar's quad nigerians are sooooooo cute it almost is too much to bear. I don't want more nigies, I don't need more nigies, I don't I don't I don't. BUT I think that Vanilla Sugar is pregnant (still not certain) and will have babies sired by Poppy Patch "Cowboy" from Blue Bear Nigerians....THAT will be hard to resist!
Svenna is leaving today to go learn more about being a grown up horse. She is going to learn how to pull in harness and ride out on trails. I am so happy for her and hope she finds this as a forever home,...if not she will come back with more trickes up her mane.
Off to the barn...very common these days. Hope to see some of you come visit the kids.

Winter Wonderland!
The snow has been falling steadily for the past few days. What that means on the farm is more indoor time for all of the farm animals EXCEPT the Dogs! They love the snow.
 Goats aren't fond of, but do fine in the snow as long as they have a place to escape wind and wet, but they do still need good ventilation.At this time of year I actually let stall bedding build up a bit as the manure and urine help create some heat. However, amonia fumes can cause respiratory problems. Several things I have learned over the years include placing bedding pellets in the base of the stall and regularly top dress with wasted hay (they do this for me!), and straw. I also keep the doors to the stall open since most of the areas are draft free and this helps with air circulation. Also, If I can smell it, they are breathing it...this is my clue that it is time to add bedding, or clean it out.
The second thing to be concerned about is fresh water that is not frozen. This is true for all of the farm animals. Over the years I have carried many buckets of warm water and broken ice on stock tanks. Last year, I purchased a heated water bucket and stock tank de-icer. Of course with goats extra care to keep them from access to chew the cords is important...but I want to tell you how nice it is to only carry two small buckets for one distant goat shelter and the poultry.
For pregnant does, excersize is really important. Whenever the weather lets up a bit I am outside encouraging movement and play, sometimes even walking a doe around the house. Enter content here
