The goats need to ingest some copper every so often so we put it on peanut butter crackers and they gobble it up.

Ginger's babies arrived

This was Ginger on Monday, the kids were born on Tuesday. 

This is the Baby Daddy, TigerTank, although I need to get an updated photo of him, he's 9 months older now.  The son of Stormy.

Aug 20, 2013 approx. noon

I love the frosted ears on Giuseppe, Ginger has frosted ears.

Proud Grandpa, Stormy, aka Sandy.  The kids look like Grandpa but he wasn't here at the time Ginger was bred.  Tank is his son.

I wish everyone could try this cheese, right up there with  Parmigiano-Reggiano.

We bought these young chickens at the livestock auction last Saturday. Matt Arnett says - "The Buffs are Buff Orpingtons.  The Black a Black Australorp." 
They're real sweet birds.

MamaBird and her chick on the deck. If you look up close, she's has detailed feathering, very pretty girl.

BarbaraJean and JackBadger spent the day at the spa.

BarbaraJean and JackBadger spent the day at the spa, Queeny's Pet Palace. I know some say to NEVER shave down Great Pyrenees because it's bad for their coats, takes their temperature regulators away, etc but you can't tell me BJ & JB don't feel a lot better. Their coats were way beyond brushing. We don't brush 'em maybe like we should but they are working dogs, constantly running these mountain sides and we have 28 goats, 4 dogs, and full-time jobs.

Barbara Jean only has three legs and Jack has only one good eye but they don't let disabilities slow 'em down.

I knew Barbara was thin but didn't realize she looked quite so boney. After her leg was removed, we knew we shouldn't let her get too heavy but we have the opposite problem. She is very active plus a big dog on only three legs burns more calories, she has to expend more energy to get around. We certainly increased her calorie intake for dinner tonight and will for the next few months.


Dear Dot,
SweetPea passed in April, I miss her very much.
She was my first love in goats.
I can't blog about her yet, maybe one day.
Love you Dot, Joanna
