4 legged critters and their barn
Here is Portia (from Fiasco Farm) and Ram Rod. Portia is a total sweet heart who loves lots of attention. Like the other goats she loves coming in the house! Ram Rod well i bet you can guess how he got his name! Lace is the black with white baby goat and her mom is Tippy the black goat. Tippy was my first goat and holds the rare pet status here although she is a great milker. She is now giving 1/2-3/4 gal a day with one baby still on her. Shes a smaller goat so that's a pretty good amount. The one in the Middle is double stuff, Mini Mellows sister. Their Mother was Marshmallow whom I'm afraid we had to put down some time ago. She was suffering and we just couldn't watch it anymore. Double Stuff lost her twin sister in an accident at a friends house. She is very sweet and jealous. The rest of my goats excluding Mini Mellow whose pic i had issues downloading this time are summering at a friends house.
In the near future I will be adding posts with pics of the chickens and game hens. I will also include pics of the emergency brooders we had to come up with along with the ones we are working on in the brooding house. This is where all the brooders( a place where you keep small chicks so that they stay warm and can grow) are. We also have a few hens that like to go broody (decide they want to hatch their own chicks) in there away from the others. That place is deff still in progress, lol. I will add pics of the orchard, berries, grapes, herb garden and reg garden. All of these are new plants so most of them are rather small. The trees should be producing in the next 3-5 years. More about the plants when i do that post. Anyway I better go there is always a lot to do around here and its calling me.
