When we have the boys and girls out together, Mike keeps Dud on a leash so he doesn't breed the girls, we have Nougat mating Clara and June. A year from now, SweetPea and Dud will be boyfriend and girlfriend. Out in the yard today, SweetPea kept trying to ram Dud in the butt. Funny entertainment.
SweetPea and her goat mama, June. I'm her human mama. Yesterday, I layed a blanket in the backyard and thought she might lay down beside me. She pounced all over me, raring up, kicking up, I'm lucky I don't have any broken ribs. She likes to treat me like a trampoline. Mike tells people if anything ever happened to SweetPea, he reckoned he'd have to bury me too. I'm absolutely in love that little goat. She's three months old now and I got her, (and her mama, and her grandma) when she was just two weeks old.
Nougat kept massaging his head on the chair, maybe he had a headache.
June and SweetPea

Franklin, Bourbon Red tom, just a pet. He has two hens plus he had two daughters to hatch late this summer. Turkey eggs at the Farmers Market have gotten very popular for us so we're thrilled we'll have two more hens. Our turkey girls have been excellent layers.
