The Farm News this week is all about the goats. I welcomed 4 little goats to the farm last Saturday – 2 black and white ones and a pair of blonde twins, all girls.
The black and white ones are Rosie II and Oreo and the blondies are Monika, named after the previous owner, and Sierra, her neighbor who is also getting into goats.
Everybody is getting along quite well – no big disagreements and I have moved them from the east side of the barn to the west side several times just to get them comfortable with all their surroundings. Susannah is quite interested in them – what’s with her? I didn’t think she liked anybody but me – ha!
I’ve been cleaning in the haymow and this afternoon after a particularly dirty 3 hours, I posted on the blog that if you have ever thought you’d like to come to camp in the barn, let this year be the year because I don’t think I can handle this again.
If the weather is nice, I let Emma, Susannah and Baby Moo wander about the yard after chores. Tonight I found Emma back by the Civil War fabric building making Jackie’s acquaintance – it was a one sided conversation.
When I checked the barn I found Baby Moo sitting on her butt like a dog. What’s with that?? I have never seen a goat sitting up.
Ina got a new great granddaughter today! Her name is Mila — I have always loved that name.
That’s all till next week, folks!
Just for a laugh…
Paul Newman founded the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp for children stricken with cancer, AIDS, and blood diseases. One afternoon, he and is wife, Joanne Woodward, stopped by to have lunch with the kids. A counselor at a nearby table, suspecting the young patients wouldn’t know Newman was a famous movie star, explained, That’s the man who made this camp possible. Maybe you’ve seen his picture on his salad dressing bottle?’ Blank stares. ‘Well, you’ve probably seen his face on his lemonade carton.’ An eight-year-old girl perked up. ‘How long was he missing?’
