Goodbye April... Hello May.. Hurry Up Diva!

I am getting my guestroom all ready for Carol and her husband. They are flying in to Raleigh/Durham tomorrow and doing some sightseeing around Winston Salem. Carol you must take a trip to Pilot Mountain. Its about a 45 minute drive from Winston. If you watched Andy of Mayberry its what he referred to as Mount Pilot. Anyway, Carol will be coming here Thursday and staying until Sunday. I am so excited to meet her and her husband. William had planned on being here but the sailboat race has put him behind a few days on getting home. Diva and I will be here to welcome them to the homestead though and I think they will have a nice relaxing time. I went next door and trimmed my neighbors red tips for the goats. Takes me longer to trim than it does for them to eat.


You would think I had given them candy as fast as they eat it. While I am trimming they are standing at the end of the fence crying for me to hurry. Diva just loves red tips. I was checking her ligaments and noticed the babies have dropped. Where she was so wide before. She is now slimmer on her sides but her belly is hanging lower, She eats and sleeps. Thats all she does right now but can't blame her. Its too hot to carry that weight around and do anything else. Rachel gave me some really good names for the babies and I have a couple floating through my mind but its not too late to give me your suggestions. Who knows, maybe one day Diva will decide to have those babies so I can name them!

Are they any certain rules in naming kids?
We had Quarter horses and there name never could be more then 18 letters in them.
And most of the time I had to see the baby and fit the name to it.

Let see.. I can't think of any good names for a goat but I had a horse name T Taurus Red and we all called him "Taurus"

How about Steffi, if one is a girl.
I feel for Diva, with her huge body.

I've plugged Diva's upcoming delivery on my blog. She looks ready to pop any moment. Is she having tail-head contractions? Looks like her udder is filling well.

It is May1st and we are all waiting for Diva's babies to come forth!! I would be like you, I would rather see them first!! I am glad that she has dropped that should mean it is soon. I just keep dropping by to see. I feel like I have kept up with her for such a long time now. Never knew that I could think this about a goat that I had never met before ((smile))
