We Are Still Here
Sorry I haven't been posting. William has been home since Friday and we have been catching up on chores. We also did the thing we hate doing... disbudding the baby goats. Thank goodness that terrible chore is over and they all are doing fine. William came home with a virus and of course gave it to me so we both have been trying to get things done with no energy. I have been in bed before 9pm each night. Just didn't have the energy to stay up plus I could never get warm. We seem to be getting over it somewhat. William has to pick up a load tomorrow morning and then heading to PA. I will be back to doing chores by myself after enjoying having someone help with the feeding and milking. All the critters on the homestead are doing great. You can tell they are getting itchy for spring. The ducks and geese have their nests built and are laying eggs. Won't be very long till they will be sitting to hatch out their babies. The baby goats are growing by leaps and bounds and are so much fun to watch. Kuma took some of the money her mom sent and treated herself and the other dogs to rawhide bones. She treated the chickens to cabbage which we tied on a string so they could peck at it. The geese and ducks got mustard greens which they inhaled quickly. The goats got cookies and the rabbits got lettuce. Everyone sends a big thank you to Kuma's mom Debbi in Germany!!
