Good morning from the mountain. a beautiful sun rise was enjoyed, pinks and white, hues of purple and blues.. Just beautiful. The sun is now shining thru the front window. The warmth is nice. Happy Good Friday to all who believe. and for those who dont,, I still hope you have a good Friday.
Today is the 145 day for my goats so hoping the rest of the eight that are due will deliver by this weekend,, then we will be done til next round. I believe that the 2 that delivered months earlier might be bred again.
We do now have 5 pigs,, not quite piglets a bit bigger but not big pigs yet either. It is nice to have pigs on the farm again. They will be tasty this winter.
trying to get a goat milking stand built so I can start milking a few of my girls. Have a friend willing to teach me to how to make cheese and yogurt.
We also picked up 41 baby chicks on Tuesday so they would be next years layers.
So far we have 6 new babies out side and still the 2 twins inside. Several set of twins, 1 set of triplets with only one making it fromthem. sad when babies die, life has a way of taking care of things. Patrick and clover are twins, Tammy and Laura, another set, Daffodil was a single birth and Bubba J was the only buck out of the triplets. Born months ago , Puddin and Emily and the twins Rosie and Pearl. 8 more does to deliver. We are blessed to have does take the lead this year.
Mud season has arrived and our driveway is very wet. But we arent minding because that means the snow is melting. We still have over 2-3 feet of snow in places. Driving thru different towns off the mountain ,there is no snow.. Only bare ground we have is the driveway.
Well I guess the coffee cup is empty and that is my clue to get busy. The girls are lined up at the fence looking for breakfast. See the wind is blowing be glad when the sun is warmer tha the wind is cold.
You all have an awesome day chores, house work, ironing,baking and Nick to dr's are on the schedule today..
