It's getting close to my bed time and we are still trying to get the new coop squared away. Too dark for pictures, bwahahaha.... it's going to make the place look even more redneck-hillbilly-hick than it already does.

Nightshade and his twin daughters left for their new home today, Now I have room to move goats around and get my spring pen cleaning done.

OK, neighbour is back to help finish this job up (he was the one who found us this awesome "coop", love having a scrap man for a neighbour, hehe!). I'll try and get pictures tomorrow, y'all are gonna get a kick out of this one....

Finally got a picture showing Tigerlily's topline.

Finally got a picture showing Tigerlily's topline.



I can't WAIT to see how this girl turns out!! I don't like a REALLY level hip, but I also don't like a really steep hip (most of my does are pretty steep hipped), I think she has just the right angle.

I don't generally care for LaMancha ears, but I think she is cute. Maybe I am getting used to them? lol.


These two ladies should be going to their new home saturday.


Kahlua's udder went from droopy saggy to this over night:


I have a follow up interview on thursday from one of my job possibilities. I would assume that is a good sign. This job will require me to get a chauffeurs license and drive a big van. That scares the daylights out of me. But if it is meant to be I will just have to deal!

Goat juggling....

I need more goat stalls. hehe.I had to juggle the goats around again to get the ones that need to be in a certain stall or pen where they belong.

No pictures today, but maybe later. I was going to get pictures of Nutmeg's udder to show how it has developed but my pitiful camera decided to drain the batteries after only about 12 pictures.

Kahlua has a full udder. She is the last of my does that is due. I was thinking she was due more like early June but.... Now I am thinking it may be a good deal sooner. So Ivy and Tigerlily needed to move out of the kidding stall and she needed to move in. I put her in there with my Psychoti-goat, Rosie. Ugh, that girl is going to exhaust my patience. But that is a whole other drama. *grin*

Anyway, I'd been keeping Sage and Nightshade together until he goes to his new home in hopes of a fall freshening again but she doesn't seem to be cooperating, so he went back out with Chickory until his new owners come and get him and the twin doelings. That should be around the 12th of may.

I'll try and get more pictures soon.

 Still job hunting. If I don't get something soon I am going to list Nutmeg for sale so i can buy hay. I'd REALLLY rather not do that, but she is nicely bred, has a lovely udder and is currently in milk so she is worth the most.
