Great Expectations

There’s a nip of fall in the air,

but a bit of spring in my step!

Saturday …. we are bringing home two, bred, Boer goat does!

Every morning, as I walk out the back door, I am greeted by:

Good morning!

Good morning!

These two, sweet, funny guys were purchased as a an experiment.

I have a lot to learn about goats.

Do I even like goats?

Would I want to try raising my own?


I still have lots to learn.

But that’s okay. I’m a willing student.

There won’t be kids until late-winter, though.

However – Abigail is due to calve in November!

    I thought you already HAD two goats. Are you getting two more? Beautiful marigolds.

    Your flowers look great! Can’t wait to see the new faces!

  3. The marigolds look so pretty (as does Abigail) Are your plans just for breeding or will you be milking? I love goats milk!
