They've finally arrived!! Please welcome the newest goat members of the family! They arrived tonight on transport via Nigerian Dwarf Goat Express (thank you, Dave!! Praying for safe travels home!) and everyone is settling in wonderfully.
First, meet our sweet crew from Monkey Hill Farm in OR. A big thank you to Michelle for these wonderful girls. Everyone is just so sweet and we are so grateful to have these lovely ladies in our herd!
- Old Mountain Farm Tumeric "Penny"
- Monkey Hill Farm Silver Lark "Hazel"
- R Serenity NHF Sparkling Cider "Liberty"
Also, Penny is actually pregnant due to an accidental breeding and is due first of February. She's only a couple months along and she's already that big! LOL. (See last photo) She does carry wide though! So, we'll have a winter kidding which is a first for us! LOL.
Our beautiful polled silver buckling from Southern Grace Nigerians in OK - Ricketts 4 Emmanuel. Thank you so much Jessica!! We just love him and he is a very friendly little guy. He is a lap sitter for sure!
We will do formal introductions with better photos soon!
Some of you may have noticed that we've been quiet on our page for the past couple weeks. We have been keeping a secret from you all! This past weekend we moved our farm down to the beautiful rolling hills of Tennessee. It has been quite hectic unpacking, dealing with renovations and getting the animals all settled but we are happy to say that everything is going relatively well so far. The goats are getting used to their new space, and everyone seems to be adjusting. The goat barn is a garage that we renovated into a barn - but we plan on building a real barn in the future! Their current space is pretty good for now though as a temporary setup.
And of course a HUGE thank you to Brian at Blarney Heights for transporting them safely all the way down to our new home!!! You guys are just wonderful and we're so thankful! :)
In other news, we have some more surprises coming up over the coming weeks so stay tuned!!!
