Goats lets talk about bad goats
We have fourteen goats on our farm eight of them new. I need to tame them down!! They are flighty, spring loaded and I swear they have suction cups on their feet. I want to milk them ~ all the goats on our farm will be first time Mom's (this should be fun). We have not had a baby goat born on our farm in four years. I need baby goats. I love, love the babies.

One of the goats I bought just before Christmas I wish I hadn't ~ not nice I know she is sweet and I do plan to win her over. She is not a sturdy goat she has a bit of a cough now and then and when she arrived she had a bit of a runny nose. We doctored her up runny nose went I need to fatten her up and get her on green grass.

Did I mention the word

SNOWING, SNOWING, snowing and more snow
January snow storm is happening. We did a road trip Saturday to take our daughter back to school then continue on and pick up our new young ram. We stayed ahead of the storm but we did keep a close watch on the road reports.
Today we are back to normal school and a little boy. I hate the thought of driving into town. This is when I wish I lived right in the middle of town and could walk everywhere.
We had a lovely time off a lot of home time but yet we seem to add a few road trips in not it is time to settle and not use so much gas/fuel for January.

Happy New Year
 As we close in on 2014 I think back to it was a good year for us here on the farm. We were intensely busy with the wedding once the date was changed we flew straight forward and never quit. We had to try to get our place into shape for over one hundred and twenty people in hot, hot intense 50+ degrees. We had a lot of set backs, a lot of things to do some we did not get to we simply ran out of time. We had wind storms that took down fences and trees just weeks before the weeding, we had horrible winter kill on the gardens. We did it the whole family pulled together and we pulled off a beautiful wedding.
We had new additions added to the farm eight new bouncing goats and I am sure I will be kept on my toes cursing this lot as they try my fences. Their new names are of the reindeer Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donor Blitzen!! so that puts us at fourteen goats enough to find trouble I am sure.

 A lot of this went on this holiday I am ten toques  made for gifts, many scarves, fingerless gloves and blankets. I enjoyed finding the time to make things

 We had a lovely Christmas Eve we visited, sang and shared some laughs.

 Wishing you and yours a perfect 2015.

Road Trip with my husband and our youngest daughter
Early morning we headed out on an amazing road trip. We hit Kelowna and the mall was open at nine am so Miss Hyacinth did a bit of shopping. She was really quite happy with herself. 
We drove to a place called Boundry country it is a little place called Beaverdell, past Big white which is ski hill (that looked like it needed more snow around there) the little place was this side of rock creek. The only reason it went smooth asking my husband to take me is he hauled a load of logs out of there last winter. I had never been it so it was cool to see somewhere new. Our roads were perfect with all our crazy weather and so many horrible accidents on the highways we totally lucked out. There was not a lot of snow but the side roads and peoples driveways were crazy icy you could have put skates on and go and not even wreck your blades.

We came to a families farm where the are a goatery ~ dairy. They usual carry one hundred does for milking but they are selling off their herd. When the two boys opened up the barn door and over sixty goats ran in all I could do was smile. It was such an awesome site. So many to pick from so hard to pick which one when I really just wanted them all. Imagine just going and buying the herd.

 I bought seven from this farm. Three were a Christmas gift from my Mom and one was a Christmas gift from my Grandson, Daughter and Son in law and then the extras. Plus some friends of ours gave me a goat yesterday and my son's picked her up. So eight new goats which brings my count up to fourteen. All have been with a Billy Goat so we shall see what comes about in two months. I have thirteen does and all have been with a buck so it will be interesting what comes along in the next several months.
