    Just got caught up, what a bunch of beautiful babies! Congrats on all the kids. I always look forward to lambing and am glad when the ewes are all done.

    Did the chipped teeth get fixed? My son has bonded front teeth, they work just fine. My daughter shot him in the face with a BB gun when she was 6, he was 10. They lied to me for years about that incident because big brother didn't want his little sister to get a whipping. LOL

    Not yet on the chipped tooth, after consult with the dentist, DS's nerve was still very tender and so we needed to give it another few weeks. I have to call in for an appointment.

    Your kids were lucky on the BB gun accident!!

    All the goats/kids are back together as of last night...lots of head butting by the adults and lots of yelling by the kids going on :rolleyes:but all has pretty much settled down as of this evening.

    DD planted the garden yesterday with some help from DS(17) and myself while DH was cleaning out the goat shelter.

    Just started looking into the possibility of a different milker for our goats. We at most milk 4-5 goats so don't need an large one. Any suggestions/recommendations for us to look into?
