Goings On

When I was talking about getting "out of the chair," I didn't think it was going to be like this. Whew!!!! Finally kidding season is over. No more babies. Yea!  Don't get me wrong, I LOVE baby goats, but for a first timer when it comes to kidding, I was a nervous wreck! But now, everything has settled down (a little).  And wouldn't you know it, I can't find my camera. I have GREAT opportunities for pictures of cute, little, bouncy babies, and I can't take pictures!  As soon as I find it you all will be bombarded with cuteness.

And for all of you in the Ky area that has been in a drought, " You are welcome." Yep, I have decided that I am the reason that we have been having so much rain. It's all because I don't have a place under shelter that I can milk my goats. Yep, I'm Millllllking in the Rain, I'm Milllllking in the Rain. What a Glorious Feeling, I'm Haaaaaappppy Again...... Ok, I'm done.

Another thing that has been going on around here is Lily has been sick. I mean, not sure she's gonna live, sick. We don't know what happened to her, but she hasn't eaten since Saturday. Although today, she started acting like she was feeling better and she actually ate some canned dog food. I think she will pull through. We were thinking that maybe she had been bit by a snake or the coyotes got to her.

Speaking of coyotes, they are HORRIBLE around here. Twice a coyote has come within a few yards of me in the last week. SCARY!!!!! Luckily George was right next to me and drove them off. He's a good boy. I think I'll keep him. lol. I just hope those nasty Coyotes stay away from my little baby goats.

Right now I have to go and get some more goat feed. They are eating it like crazy. But, I guess that's what I get for having 16(that's right folks, 16) goats.  And on top of this, we are looking into getting more Myotonic goats. We have decided that we just LOVE them. Great mothers, good personalities, and VERY easy to take care of. I'll still keep my milkers though. Gotta have that milk. lol

So until next time,

Small Farm Girl, no longer sitting in the chair.

I'd be gettin' a shotgun for those coyotes or they WILL be after your baby goats! You don't have to necessarily kill them but shoot at them a couple of times and they'll get the idea!
I'm glad Lily seems to be getting better.
Oh, and find that camera! :)

Yikes! Hope you can get some target practice w/ the coyotes, and get some cover for milking the goats!! Don't think it would be fun milking in the rain.
Can't wait till you find that camera!

i think that if coyotes are coming that close to you in daylight i would be carrying a firearm outside with me-even to the clothesline..we have alot of coyotes here where i live but they know their place and have never approached the homestead so they smell baby goats.

I loved my baby goats but sure do not miss kidding season. That was always too stressful for me!

I hear you loud and clear on the kidding business. The work doesn't stop when they hit the ground does it? Please be careful and keep the goats safe. The coyotes can't be up to anything good.

Take care with those coyotes. Your babies are sure cute. I "follow" your blog, but thought you hadn't been blogging because none of your updates are showing up in my blog list??? Argh. So, glad to know you are still hoofin' along ;-).
