BlueRidgeMtns & buck pen

We live the Blue Ridge Mountains. This is the view from our doe pasture. The bucks don't have their fenced pasture yet but

they now have a buck pen.


MilkDud, Cahoot, and SugarPop. Cubby and Boones will be moving in when we take 'em from Caliente. That will be difficult for Mike and I, taking babies from a Mama, so don't hold your breath.


9-month old SweetPea likes playing with the kids. She doesn't hang out with her Mother June and Grandmother Clara. You see SweetPea's stomach that was shaved for the c-section, however, she doesn't realize that she is a Mama. We're still bottle feeding little Gabbi.
I hate for the black hoses to be in the photo but they transport our Spring Water which we use a lot of for our animals.

Poor little Sweet Pea is just a baby herself! Is Gabbi in with her and the other kids? They are all SO cute!

Your mountains are beautiful! We are so blessed to live in such a beautiful Country...

That first picture is breathtaking! I would love to see that part of the country some day. You and all your beautiful animals are very fortunate.

Oooh! I didn't know that Cuckoo marans looked like barred rocks. I love that they lay 'chocolate coloed' eggs. I must try to get some one day! Yours are already pretty!

Your buck house is cute. No worries about them leaping over that tall fence, eh? hehe!

Your does have quite the view. Wow! Humans pay big bucks to stay in a room with views like that! lol :)

Oh! And I liked how you typed in the names next to each goat. You've got so many babies now, it's hard for the rest of us to remember who's who. hehe!

By the way, I replied to your question on my blog in the commet section. :)

Thanks for asking,

So many goats running around! You must be in paradise. I wish we had more, but I'm trying to restrain for now. We are getting another in a few weeks.

That view is PRICELESS! I almost didn't come home from the last trip (past weekend).
Goats, kids and the Blue Ridge Mountains....who could ask for anything more?? :)

Oh my! That view is to die for. It looks like a postcard.

Amazing.

And so are all your sweet little goats. They always make me smile.
