    He needed a reality check. That's for sure.

    Well now that my kids are here, it's time to get ready to milk. I've got two more does waiting to deliver but their dates are really dicey.

    I'm finally building my garden cart and preparing to have a garden this year. The electric fence will be nine wires. There will be no fooling around with sneaky goats for me, by gosh!

    The top photo is a Doeling and the bottom is a buckling. Both stood right away. Mama and babies are doing fine.

    I’ve read your whole journal QM. All I can say is WOW at the ups and downs you’ve endured over the years. I hope that this year holds lots of positives for you! I’m now following along on your journey.

    I'm getting ready to build a house. I bought an acre of property on a tax lien sale and so I have to sell most of my herd. One doe will be taken care of by a friend until the house is done so I can retain most of my favorite goat genes. But the rest have to go. :(. I think I found a buyer for Bonzai, Margaret and Mary, my big does and buck, but can't find buyers for my kids. So they will have to go to the sale barn. They are my best kids yet, big beautiful milk kids.

    Fortunately I got great prices for my doelings. I only have one left. She is a beautiful La Mancha doeling. So I will probably get a good price for her at the sale. Not sure what I will get for the bucklings, but they are really healthy and very friendly. Cross your fingers folks. Sigh!:oops:

    This is exciting! Land! Building a house! It is not without a tug at the heart because you must cut the herd, but your own place!

    That is so true Baymule. I am really excited.

    It is really hard. I love these goats and I am going to miss them. BUT I am keeping the one I like the most and the people I am selling too will let me breed my doe to Bonzai.
