Truth should be everpresent.
Lots has happened in my goat world since this post.

Mollie and Dusty both had their kids. They each had 2, a girl and a boy. Mollie had a black boy we named Shaq and a blonde girl we named Blondie. (It looks like Blondie may end up being black) I sold Shaq as a pet and he s doing very well. Much loved by his little people.
I still have Blondie and plan to keep her.

Dusty had a little boy we named Bruiser and a girl we named Woolene. I had Bruiser sold but the guy who was supposed to get him dropped trees on his fences and now has nowhere to keep the goat so I still have him. If I don't sell him soon I will have to band him. Sadly Woolene passed away 2 weeks ago from coccidia. It's a common problem with kids when they are under stress. She was being weaned and I could not save her.

I also had another baby goat given to me when it was 2 weeks old. It was an orphan. She was the cutest thing and was doing so well. She was weaned and growing nicely but passed away suddenly from bloat. I have since learned how to recognize it and treat it. I wish I had known before I lost Bobbie. I really miss her. She was a bottle baby so she thought I was he Momma.

I have been milking the does since their kids were 2 weeks old and enjoying the milk, cheese and yougurt. They are giving much less milk now so I am about ready to let them dry off. I don't want to have to get up early in the cold to go milk. I have put some milk in the freezer.
