Madeline and Meringue stick together

Madeline and Meringue, mini-nubian yearlings, left today to start their new life in Morgan, Utah with their new owner, Mark.  They told me that they had to stay together, so Mark agreed and bought both of them.  They will be the foundation does for Mark's new line of mini-nubians.  We are very sad to see them go-- they were the queens of the teeter-totter and all-around great little gals.  They will enjoy an excellent barn and very large pastures to play in with their new friends (and new boyfriend, a 2nd generation buck from Anne Wilson of Berry Patch Farm).  We'll miss you M & M.

Goats LOVE teeter-totters

Earlier this spring we made some teeter totters for the goats.  It took some time for them to figure it out, but now this is their favorite activity.

Starting a blog, due to popular demand

Many people have asked me to start a blog.  I have no idea how to do this, so bear with me.  I guess I'll try to post some photos of our newest additions-- the Three Musketeers, otherwise known as Domino, Blackstrap and Powder.  Sugar, our Nubian doe, had triplet boys (Mini-Nubians) on May 10th.

This is Domino-- the first buckling born.  He has a 4 on this side and a 2 on the other.

How cute is he?

 Here's Blackstrap, the second boy.
He's the biggest boy, and possibly the most mellow.

And this is Powder, he is very unique.  His nickname is "Phantom".

 All these guys are so sweet and cuddly.  Don't you wish you could just snuggle?
