So many of you have asked about my wee goats Flip and Flop -- thank you for your interest!!
First we got 16 baby chicks in the mail the Wednesday before Easter - all 16 are well and doing fine. Growing like weeds and now live in their room in the barn. Mind you, we only wanted five. Long story.
Are you my Mommy???
Nicole, my 13 year old grand-daughter and I take our new Maremma Sheepdog puppy home with us. We name her Sam.
Sam looks over her new domain.
Sam starts learning her new job to watch over the goats.
Nanny, Nicole and Caroline my 11 year old grand-daughter. We are introducing Flip to Sam.
Look Mom!!! I have a lap goat. Nicole is holding Flip while Flop looks for food.
The goats have been poorly - it seems that they are OCD and overeat. Do you think they take after me?
Our problem is too much rich spring grass. Art is getting it all cut back now and I know more about goat poop then I should. The goats are well now but we have kept them up and eating mostly hay and oats. They might be able to go out a little while this afternoon.
I had my daughter's four kids during their Easter break and needless to say it was a zoo here. Two cats, two goats, 16 chicks, a new puppy and 4 children between the age of 6 and 13. This has been one crazy adventure.
Thanks for you interest in my world and I so enjoy reading your comments. Welcome to my new followers - y'all make me smile!!
