Oh Deer ……. :)

We have lots of wildlife here on the farm….. more than just some wild chickens and goats! These deer showed up early in the morning for some breakfast. The mama deer looks like she really needs to eat more before the winter gets here, she is looking a bit thin. The little deer ate all the mushrooms on the lawn and then enjoyed grazing on the lovely dew covered grass. It is so nice to look out and watch them eat early in the morning….. as long as they are not in the garden  Speaking of the garden, we are beginning to get it ready for a winter sleep. We have had some really hard frosts and all the plants are spent so Jake and Jeff started pulling up the dead plants in preparation for winter garden dressing. While they were working, they found quite a few really nice big potatoes that had grown from last years left overs. That is always a really nice surprise  We will be planting the garlic soon, but will have to make sure we don’t plant too early and not too late either. Has to be just right.
The bachelor pad (Jim and Reggio’s house) will need some winter modifications before it snows to be sure they stay nice and warm in the winter. I would also love to give those two a bath, but not really sure how to go about it. I will have to do some research on how to bathe bucks and see if I can figure something out. The girls, especially Starr goat and Starbright, really love the way they smell and can’t resist their manliness ….. Lol! Gotta love these awesome goats! Starbright and Sugar will be the only girls that we will breed this fall so that we can continue to get milk from Bella and then we will possibly breed Bella in the spring so that we stagger the breeding. We shall see.
I am so glad to report that the chickens are giving up the eggs! Yay! We are still only getting about 11 out of 24 hens, but it is certainly a start.
Well, that’s all for now. G’night all….. sweet dreams ❤

Farm and Garden Fun!

Busy Spring Days!

What a busy weekend! Wow! Cleaning goat houses can really be a tough job…. especially with all of our helpers. Starbright loves to inspect my work as I am going to make sure I don’t miss even one goat berry  She is a stickler for a clean house!
The babies are doing very well…. Emelia loves to hang her feet over Reggio while he walks around. She is such a nut. I will see if I can get a picture of it…. it is totally adorable! Honey and Daisy Mae are becoming very good friends now that they bunk together. They love to lay in the shade together and chew…… just too cute. Jim has a new place next to the girls yard now so he can be part of the herd but not in with the girls. He is very happy with his new digs! Soon, in a few weeks, Reggio will be joining him in the bachelor pad.
Starr is doing better every day on her boo boo leg. She walks on it all the time now and only limps if she has to run. I don’t think she trusts it to hold up to running. She is such a love! I love to sing the Starr goat song to her 🙂 
Sugar and Bella are doing awesome on the milk stand! Bella is such a giver…. she gives almost a half gallon of milk a day…. and I still leave some for the babies. Sugar gives about a quart, but she is a first freshner and I expected it to be low, but it is very creamy and sweet milk so she makes up for the low numbers with great quality milk.
We have been working in the garden for many days and have planted about 160 tomato plants, assorted green beans, lettuce, peppers, and herbs. Talk about sore muscles…..
Well, until next time….. take care and happy farming! 🙂

News from the farm ~ Bella and her babies <3

What a day we had here on the farm! Bella and her babies were integrated into the herd successfully!! Bella is such a good mama that she made sure her babies were safe from harm all day ♥ Her and Starbright had it out first thing so that there would be no herd queen issues. That was an interesting altercation for sure. I think Bella just wanted Starbright to understand that the babies were more important than who the leader of the herd is. Daisy and Honey were really interested in these new babies and were intercepted by mama Bella several times. I am so happy that all went well and babies and mama are back in their side of the house to spend the night ♥
Tomorrow will bring lots of work including a chicken tractor being built and bee hives put in place and made ready for the new bees arrival.
Well, I am exhausted, so I will see you all tomorrow….. good night all…. sleep well my friends ♥

We were out in the goat barn until after 3 am making sure everyone was dry and doing well. So needless to say we are bushed and in dire need of a good night sleep!
