Kidding time

February 11, 2013

This time last year we had this cute set of quads on the ground. However, their caretaker -- Caroline -- went off to college, so all the goats were sold after the county fair. I miss them, but Bob does not. Goats jump over every fence.

We still have 38 ewes, all pregnant and due in April. They are chewing through the hay in the barn. The harvest was down last year in the drought.

The subsoil in Iowa is still very dry. We had nice rains the past week, but the situation is troublesome.

If you are kidding or lambing or calving right now, good luck!

Drop some photos for us to see here:
