Let's see...Baby goats are doing well. They found their legs last night - finally! - and have just about figured out how to stand up. This is slow...usually, kids are on their wobbly legs within 12 hours....these guys took almost 36. Still, they seem fine, so no worries. Jordie is taking about 6 oz per feeding, the other 2 are averaging 4. Worf and Wesley (outside) are taking 9 oz each, so.....
Mammo was a "soft" one...not really, but hey - it's the thought that counts, right? I see the doc today..but the tech wasn't worried about anything. Funny thing - she just got a mini-Jersey, who had calved Monday evening. :lol:
Yesterday was shopping day, and I bought a play pen for the goats. This way, my bathroom floor stays clean, I don't worry about stepping on a goat, yet they have a safe place to play. Wally-world had one for $48, so not too bad. AND I managed to come in WAY under-budget for this month's groceries, so...go me! :happy dance: (I refused to buy ANY processed stuff this month. We'll see how it goes....but that crap is expensive!)
I hope SG gets the machine up and running this weekend....milking 6 is KILLING my hands. And Zoe is due..today. IF she's bred....I can't tell. She suddenly upped her production this AM, so...maybe? Not really looking forward to more house goats, but at least they'll be contained. :lol: We then have a 3 - 4 week break before the Cashmeres start popping...I need it. It's getting harder to cope with being woken up every 3 hours to bottle feed babies.
Oh! We also picked up SG's yarn yesterday....the shop owner could not have been nicer. :scratches head: Still doesn't change our opinion of them, though...1 good experience out of the last 4 doesn't help. Besides...I've already ordered most of the other colors we need. :lol:
Gotta feed the babies before heading out - laters!
