    Coronavirus Covid-19 Is it Affecting You and How?

    We'v been under a mask mandate in NC for 5 months and had our highest number of daily infections one day last week. The numbers have been going up for weeks. It appears that the mask mandate isn't working. Some people are arguing that it isn't working because everyone isn't complying. I'm...

    A little goat management brag.

    Guess who was Best in Show, and Best Udder in Show at the NC State Fair ? That's right, the old girl still has it. FYI, there was no Fair, but the Dept of Ag put on all of the Youth Livestock Shows. Climate Control was Grand Champion Toggenburg. Judge said it was between her and Zamia for BIS...

    New Feed and Water Station - What do you think?

    Yes, it is frost free. It has a drain at the bottom so when you turn the water off, it drains out of the pipe.

    Nigerian dwarf goats

    How's the bottle feeding going? The seller did you a huge disservice in selling you dam raised kids at 4 weeks old to switch to a bottle. That's a tough thing to do. You just have to work with them. You are going to have to hold them and literally pry their mouth open and force them at...

    A little goat management brag.

    She's 10 now , but she appraised 92 EEEE as an 8 year old and was 3rd placed aged doe with 1st place udder at the ADGA National Show that year. She was dry all last year, and we haven't had any goat shows this year. There is going to be a youth show at the NC State Fair and we may show her...

    Coronavirus Covid-19 Is it Affecting You and How?

    Probably the biggest effect covid 19 has had on my family is my 16 year old daughter, and the craziness regarding schools. We made a big decision. She's never been the greatest student in the world, so since everything has been forced online we decided it would work best for her if we just...

    Coronavirus Covid-19 Is it Affecting You and How?

    No, not too bad. I slept through the earthquake this morning. Only in NC do you have a hurricane and an earthquake in the same week.

    Coronavirus Covid-19 Is it Affecting You and How?

    They lost me when they said all the rioting was OK. Oh, that's right it was "peacful protesting", my bad. It seems to me, that's what jump started the spread of the virus. But, you go with what works for you. :thumbsup Stay safe.

    Coronavirus Covid-19 Is it Affecting You and How?

    I guess that's better than if it was higher, but I'm not sure that's really significant.

    A little goat management brag.

    Udder is holding up well too. This is why attachment is so important when they are younger. The udder is held up well when they are 10 and still productive.

    A little goat management brag.

    I think a brag is in order here. Not because this is such a beautiful doe. But, rather because she is 10 years old due soon for her 9th freshening and still looks like a million bucks. We must be doing something right. Or, maybe it's just something in the water. ;)
