    I don't post much here about kiddings as I am just over run with them and it would only be tiresome. But to date I have had 79 kids born here. 41 bucks and 38 does. Only 19 or 20 more to freshen. We will break 100 kids easily. :ep:th

    I am not worthy. With the mud, the barn, the dogs, the hard kidding this year, and life I am truly ready to throw in the towel. It has just been too much too fast, I still cry every time I think of not ever seeing my precious Alondra again, that was truly the proverbial straw. She is still here but I know that it is coming. My diary is portable...anybody want to buy one?... just let me know.

    As far as the kid crop...I have a good friend that is raising them for me and selling them ASAP. I could never do it without her. I am also selling goats, my goal is to be down to 25 seasoned milkers plus some first fresheners that are Jumanji kids that I might not even milk this year, depends on their udders and my time.

    Oh my that is a lot of kids!!!

    :hugs I know your heart is hurting with the devastation from the snow and having to part with Alondra. I hope some time will ease that pain somewhat. I wish I could take Alondra but that isn't in the cards.

    I can only imagine the stress of what you're dealing with. You may not see it now but it is truly a testament to your strength and resilience. :hugs

    Alondra leaving is nothing but hard. It will leave a hole in your heart but knowing it's what's best for her and Mia will hopefully ease the pain somewhat.

    Your friend must be pretty awesome too!

    I think that I found Alondra a good home but oh my gosh it hurts. I wish I had a parallel life where I could take her to live with the "other me".
