A lot has been going on outside of Tangle Ridge farm activities. Sorry for my absence, but I'm sure you understand. Meanwhile, we'll try to start catching up.
Alita and the boys are doing fine. They were disbudded at 12 days old by an experienced goat lady, (thank you again!). Now that I've witnessed it up close, maybe next year I can do it myself if needed, after purchase of the proper equipment. They are now 4 weeks old. Alita and I have practiced milking a few times and that has gone reasonably well. We aren't on a regular schedule, however, because the kids are still on her. The plan is to start once a day this weekend... And, the kids are for sale. I'll post them on the 'For Sale' page soon.
Now I know what Yeller eats when he is hanging out with the gang at the goat barn (besides moles, mice and chipmunks). These two are good buddies. Scout doesn't share so readily with the goats :)
My name is Christy Franklin.
