    thanks, still have a few things to get ready before Nov breeding season begins....working on checking fecals for each goat so if any need to be treated we can get it taken care of.

    Now that test results have come back clear and quarantine time has past, we have started introducing Amelia to the rest of our herd....at this point we aren't sure how it's going to work out-not sure our fencing is high enough to keep her in as she is very curious to all the surroundings(she was given run of her previous home). She makes Rio(Lamancha) look small and our ND look even smaller! DH has been helping with the process since she outweighs the rest of us and is very strong! DS(12) is not comfortable around her and this is something that will be given much consideration.

    In other excitement- DD injured her thumb playing volleyball last week Thursday so we had to have that looked at(she wasn't a happy camper)- thankfully it was just a sprain/bruised and as of today she is cleared again to play! :clap

    On Thursday, DS(15) will have his 4 wisdom teeth removed as they are impacted and pushing against his other teeth....hoping it doesn't cause him problems :fl

    He's young, he'll get over it ;) DD2 had hers out at about that age and only took one pain killer. I, on the other hand, being a wuss, had mine out at 19 and was in bed for a week. Then one of the sockets got infected when I was back at school.

    I jammed a finger or 3 playing Vball when I was younger, sure does hurt! Glad she's back in the game.

    Hopefully she'll settle in without too much turmoil, and DS(12) can calm his concerns. Glad the hand is better, I had 2 daughters that played in school, so it deffinitely comes with the Fun. Sure feel for the DS(15) and sure hope it all goes good for him....just keep reminding him thru the healing that they sure won't bother him again.....:fl....

    How is Granite?

    His mama has her milk star in fat, volume, and protein already with 3 tests to go
    If Maurine really worked her she could be our highest producer as a FF
    I think for him to have a star his dam and sire both have to have one
    Need to check

    Granite is doing very well! Super friendly and cooperative when we need to work with him :). In fact DH says he needs to remember to trim Granite's feet last otherwise he won't get off the stand for the others. I need to get a picture of him, he's got this cute little beard growing. Maybe DS(12) can help me tonight- for whatever reason Chester(older buck) doesn't like it when I pull the camera out to take pictures and will stand in front of the others or push them back into the shed...

    It is interesting how the goats perceive people- the other day a friend of a friend stopped in to see our goats. Melanie was very loving and wanted to be right by the gal-probably would have followed her right out the gate! Rio stayed right next to me and Munchkin hide behind me and most of the others went up onto the towers and few went into the shed to eat. Obie went and hide by the towers.....

    Congrats on the star's for Molasses :clapthat's awesome!
