Only one left...

 All the goats ( except Zeeboo) and kids are sold!

So far, Zarah and her 2 doe kids, are in Cartersville.

Emmy Lou and Piper are in Bridgeport, AL.

Jewel and Aslan just went to Fall Creek Falls, Tn.

The family that came last night to see Tom and Pete, called today and said they do want them. They just need to make all the fencing and shelters safe for them. Their son fell in love with them both! I love that. So they will come get them in a few weeks.

Sandy and Woody will be picked up tomorrow afternoon, to go live on Sand Mt. with a friend.

And today, the lady who got Emmy Lou and Piper, called and wants Penelope! But can't get her for a few weeks, but will send a check. That's fine. More milk for us til then.

I am very happy with where all the goats are and will be. It just all worked out. And I thank God for answering my prayer SO fast!

So that just leaves Zeeboo. And her milk will be good to drink in a few weeks. I'll milk her every day and keep the boys off her. I hope her milk supply will build back up now that she's well.

I am very happy with how this all turned out. I think I've realized for a few years now, that I've needed to do this. It was becoming more of a chore I just didn't want to do any more. And I was more or less neglecting the goats. I fed them and milked them. And made sure they were all ok. But as far as spending time with them, I just didn't want to. And that affects animals.

So this is what I need to do for right now. Who knows what the future holds. I know something needs to be back there, keeping the grass and weeds down. I do not want it to become overgrown and snaky that close to the house.

I can let the sheep back there, after I make sure the electric fence it HOT! Otherwise, they go right through it. And I cannot have that happen.

Or I could start a pig farm?

Or have a cow?

Or maybe a POA pony? Hmmm....

So anyway, here is Zeeboo. This is her udder after a few weeks after freshening. Lots of good milk and great teats. And very good on the stanchion. No trouble at all. She'd be good for first time milkers. I think the 2nd pic was before kids.

Hmmm... who knows what I'll do. I talked to the farmer next to me today at the market and he has pigs that'll be ready to sell in a few months. We shall see.
