Annual Scrapie audit done.
Wednesday, 3/9, we had our annual Scrapie audit. Once again, the department of Agriculture has certified us as a Scrape-free herd.
After the Scrapie audit, we spent the rest of the day shearing goats. The momma goats are in great shape under all that winter fleece!
Kidding time is almost here! The momma goats are getting bigger by the day. Soon baby goats will be bouncing around the farm!
Our first kids should arrive around March 19th and continue through the middle of April. I have a very good feeling that this will be our be our best year ever. I’m feeling very prepared for the first arrivals. All pen cards are printed out and ready to be filled out as the kids arrive. Kidding bags are all put together stuffed with supplies. Some local school kids have volunteered to come up and spend some nights with us during Spring break. This will be a heavy kidding time for us. It is always really exciting for the kids and I to share this experience.
We are now on facebook. If you would like to see photos of the baby kids as they are born, we will be posting photos on facebook. You can find our facebook page at:
That’s all for now. I will be giving updates along the way.
Take care, Lisa
