One of my goats, Flora, kidded twin doelings while being boarded.  I had long ago decided (you can tell how bad I am about decisions) that I was NOT going to keep any of her kids this year.  However, when I saw pics of this little girl, I caved.

I can only have 5 goats total – four does/doelings and one buck.  So, I arranged to trade Flora for her baby.

I named her Amber.  Isn’t she pretty?  I LOVE her wattles!

Now my herd members are Glory and her two girls, Abby and Ashley,  my new buckling, Tesla, and of course, Amber.

I’m sorry I’ve neglected my blog for so long.

We have moved to Colorado for the summer.  Tyler has a job here until October.

My goats are being boarded for me until I get back.   And my dogs are being cared for by Tyler’s parents.

I’m glad for the break from milking, but I do miss my girls.  I know they are in good hands, but it is soooo hard to let go, even temporarily.  On the other hand, I LOVE being able to spend so much more of my day giving attention to my baby and husband.

So much happened with Kalee the week of our move.  She learned to crawl, cut two teeth, and figured out how to pull herself to stand (with support from a chair, wall, legs, etc…).


Now that we’re well settled in, there will be lots more posts!
