Monday at Hidden Haven

Been a busy weekend. William made it home. His mom spent the weekend with us and his cousin, his wife, daughter and son in law visited Sunday afternoon. Everyone loved seeing the baby goats. Sonya is doing great. Her babies had a little congestion but after I put them on antibiotics they are doing lots better. Sammi had a day where her rumen wasn't working but after a couple doses of baking soda and water chased by a fourth cup of veggie oil she is back to normal. DiDi is looking like she will kid tonight or tomorrow. Over all things are busy but fun at Hidden Haven. A homestead friend of ours is writing articles on homesteading. She ask us to complete a survey then she wrote a really nice article about Hidden Haven. I told her she did so well I wanted to visit my own place! Here is the link if you would like to read it. Also have some pictures I snapped while raking the pens this morning.

Hi Peggy, Sounds like life at Hidden Haven is going well.. Hope you got some rest!!!! Doesn't sound like it since you had a farm-full of company.

Is DiDi the last one to kid this month????

Thanks for the updates and for the pictures. They are just TOO precious!!
Hugs,

Peggy,

You are an amazing woman. You do so much on your own when William is away. I'm not sure how you keep up and still have time for making soap and blogging.

Loved the write-up on Hidden Haven. One of these days I'm coming down to see you. I would love to tour the farm, taste your fabulous southern cooking and lend a hand where it is needed.

Enjoyed my visit and the photos of the goats are delightful.

Blessings,
Mary

Here's a dumb question for you. Do the mothers ever nurse each other's kids? Just seems like they might with all the little ones running around and the full udders available.

Jess said...

Glad things are going so well.

Hope that everything goes well with Didi's delivery.

Have a great week, Love, Jess

I went over to the link and read about you.. How neat! You are doing very well, and you have your own store! Part of your homesteading.

Besides you are an amazing goat farmer, more like thier (Mom) and that is pretty cool.

Beautiful photos! For some reason I thought you lived not very far away in our neighboring state of MO. With all of these gorgeous pictures of spotted Nubians (I love Nubians anyway and the spots are just gorgeous) I went to your farm website to see if you ever sold any goats and was so disappointed to learn you live clear across the country from me here in Kansas. darn, well I can still enjoy your beautiful goats through your blog anyway! Congrats on all the new babies, they are all beautiful!

Oh Peggy they are all so cute! I enjoyed reading the survey. I could tell by the pic your little goats are spoiled to hand feeding lol! I'd spoil them to as sweet as they all are.

Have a blessed evening!

I am glad you got a little break between deliveries. I am also in awe that you know what to do to keep your girls well without involving a vet! Good for you! Talk about self sufficiency

rebel said...

All the babies are so cute. You sure do love your life.

Christy said...

Nice article! And nice pictures.

I enjoyed reading your article! I didn't realize you have only been at homesteading for 4 years, you have so much knowledge. My question is how you know what to have handy for deliveries, and how you knew what to do and how to tell if the goat's rumen isn't working? Thankfully we've never had to help a goat deliver so far, but have had a couple of kids die after birth. You are such an inspiration to me!

You are such a great "Grandmother" to all those little kids!

I enjoyed reading the link...that was fun. I love your country kitchen...too cute. I am a loyal follower, except most days, I lurk. Like Lynn, I'm interested in the rumen issue too. More info? Enjoy the day.
