Our Homestead Happy Place!

IMG_20160610_101259866Our last doe gave birth this week. Meadow was brought to our homestead already bred to a BEAUTIFUL Nubian Buck from the Goats of Gilead Ranch up in Ashfork. We had been anxiously awaiting to see what this mama would bless us with… And guess what? She gave us exactly what we were hoping for!! A buckling and a doeling!!! SO EXCITED!!

We are keeping both babies for our homestead for next season breeding. (And we got a new buck from a different line out of this!!) I just filled out their paperwork to get them registered too. YEA!!

Welcome to the family Jasper and Ginger! Great job, Mama Meadow!

Quite the house of babies… Goats, that is

krisandlarry.com - baby goats We had another set of twins born this morning. Mama Pepper gave birth to 2 bucklings this morning in the middle of a snow lightning storm. These little boys are named Thunder and Lightning and are full blood, non-registered Nubians from Pepper and Mor Dubh. We are bottle feeding them.

Pepper is retiring this year and living out her life next door at my parents house with her BFF, Frankie the sheep. 

So far this year, our count is 2 doelings and 2 bucklings.
