    Coffee is on.
    @AmberLops hoping your bunnies improve. :hugs
    They are pedicting a very hot humid weekend for us. Highs in mid to high 90s and heat indexes above 100s.... so far our fans and ice bottles are keeping the bunnies cool. We'll be at the lake this weekend so hoping we don't lose any while we are gone. But I almost expect some. We'll see.

    I am not sure I ready for it to be morning the youngsters kept waking up. one of the mornings coffee would be nice but no. anyways there is hot tea if anyone wants it. I got a message yesterday day someone wants to come out this weekend to view two of the kids I prefer to sale. we see what happens.

    so I been thinking the goat kids which at this point shouldn't be considering their age... they are seven months old. anyways I was thinking that their mother had gone severally down in production or they were nursing well turns out I finally saw them nursing this morning.... so that interesting. and explains some. I also believe the other kid that belongs to my other does is also still nursing at sixmonths. because Lilly is always lopsided.... I am not set up to separate now... the bucks had to be separated they were doing their buck thing and I don't want to breed quite yet. I am just glad no one goes in heat till august.

    Cow Panels. Instant pen. You need some cow panels and T-posts, they are great for temporary set ups until you can make something permanent. Or pallets. Pallets are free, can get loads of them at Lowes, build a temporary pen with pallets. Can't get any cheaper than free. If you don't have T-posts, run one pallet long ways, turn the next one across like a T, then long ways, then T, all you need is a box of screws. It may not be pretty, but it will darn sure work!

    Aw I hope you don't lose anyone. That's really hot weather!
    So far I have 2 litters left of kits over a week old...lost 4 litters.
    I'm hoping these younger babies have a better start when they leave the nest box :fl

    I am hoping to be able to shortly throw up some panels in the bucks yard to extend the girls area and hoping my husband takes down some of the wall he put up in my goat house (was a temporary pen for baby bunnies). it cuts the house completely in half and I just had a gate it would work well for separating at night. I also really hoping the people who messaged me yesterday actually make it out this weekend and take them home. I am already having a hard time keep up with milk much less if I had five does. I know technically I have to milk all five but if I feed them I want the milk lol. I do plan on making soap and cheeses next year so I not sure how much milk I will need along with four kids but so far they only go through maybe at most two gallons a week and I currently get 2.5 quarts of milk a day. so yeah. I also plan to buy a milk separator so I can make our own butter and ect.

    Never been to Mississippi but it seems like a really nice place too :)
    I was born in Colorado, parents moved to Hawaii when I was 4 and then moved to Idaho when I was 11...then to Oregon, Arizona, New Mexico, Maine, Pennsylvania, back to Arizona and now i'm here!
