Thanks, you guys.......... I was already really attached to her too. Her first bottle was from me, so everytime they fed the baby pen she would cry for me :hit and she was such a funny little goat. Adventurous, curious..... Even when there was a new person coming to pick up a sheep, she was there by my side trying to get hugs :hugs Even after I passed out at the doctors(Long story!) I refused to go home and watch TV, I wanted to go see Snickers! The morning i got the email from the farm owners, I was so sad. I was soooooooo sad during that whole school day and it was really hard on me :( Then when she died, at least I knew that she was in a happier place :(

I believe the calf is a guernsey/jersey cross.... But it will probably change tomorrow!!! :lol:


On another note, I'm going this weekend to try out my new soft brush and a brush for the cow's tail... I think I have WAY too many grooming supplies :)

I went yesterday... didn't have the time to update it!!! I helped muck out a large pen and I raked the aisle, threw out old wool... Then, I went inside and got some homemade lemon sherbet :drool It was AMAZING!!!!! Then I went outside to help my friend shave a goat, but right after we got the doe (Buffalo Gal or Buffy for short) on the stand, her mom came to pick her up :th So, she's going to do it today with help from the farm owner. Then I attempted to work with Almond Joy, but she decided to be a drama queen because no-one else was working with them. So, I put her back in and then got my new soft brush :D and went to brush him and he LOVES it!!!! I brushed and rubbed him for at least 45 minutes, and then got my new tail brush out to brush his poopy tail :lol: He didn't like it, but it sure does look better!!! I brushed him more, then went to help feed and water the chickens and rabbits. 67 eggs today!!! Then one of the mamas hatched a silver penciled rock bantam chick :love it's adorable!!! But the mom is very protective!!! Then I held some of the dutch rabbit babies :) They're only a few weeks old now so they are SO cute!!!! So, I had a very fun day!!! :woot

7/3-7/8

I went to 4-H Camp!!!!! More specifically goat camp. We learned and memorized most of the showcard, learned ALL of the goat parts, and some other things. For grooming we bathed them, clipped them, trimmed hooves, and scrubbed the hooves. I also milked my friends goat 4-5 times and now I'm used to it, now I just need to get more sanitary milk and maybe get a little faster. :)
