Life on the Farm
These photos were taken just moments apart! Springtime in the Rockies is amazing. We ended up with an inch of snow. My goats free range and end up on my porch often. They look in through my kitchen windows many times per day. It is nice to have them so near. That way I can keep a check on their welfare easily.
I am just milking one of my does, Daisy, once per day. She is feeding twins and still giving me a half gallon of milk each day. Not bad for a petite goat. I will begin milking her sister, Opal, soon. She is a first freshener and not producing quite as much as Daisy, but certainly plenty to keep her twins growing rapidly. I am still waiting on Leah to kid, but her pregnancy has not been confirmed. Perhaps this is all the babies we will get this year.
