Butters is over being pregnant! She's HUGE and due on Wednesday! She has an XL basketball on each side and can barely walk...more like a waddle at this point. We got the temporary stalls in place (will be building a new barn this summer) and she's resting quietly. Any guess on how many she might have in there?
We have some exciting news!! We finally bought an ultrasound machine after figuring out we would have to haul 14 goats into our new TN vet's office (which wasn't an option anyway). Our vet was kind enough to come out and show us how to use it! It's really neat! So, with that being said, we confirmed pregnancies on 7 of the girls so far. We still have to wait a bit longer to check Scarlet, Kitty, Dixie and Faith in the coming weeks! Here are the U/S results:
Sorry for the bad photo, but the lighting was terrible in the barn that day. More updates coming soon! ;-)
We got snow the other day - and TONS of it! As it turns out, Tennessee can also get big snow dumps! LOL. The goats and puppies loved romping around in it all day! What a beautiful day in the snow!! :-)
There's a new face in the barn...meet Daisy! She is a very sweet and gentle girl, and is actually preggo -due mid February (bred to a moonspotted & blue eyed Prairie Wood buck). She is also moonspotted and blue eyed. She is SUCH a love and we are grateful to have her as a part of our herd! Thanks Kathy!
