|Cookie (she is so expressive)|
|Patches (not sure whats going on)|
We now have on our farm: Cuddles (spoilt), Connie with her new twins girls (Gibby and Coco), Cookie our new milk goat and Patches our little boy. The cows : Rosie, Snow flake, Snow Ball, Skinner, Peewee, Sunny, Baby-6 months old (all except baby are expecting very soon) and Midnight the bull and our chickens: 10 hens and 2 roosters.
I would love to get a couple sheep, 2 pigs. a milk cow and a few more chickens this summer if money permits. My husband jokes that we have a petting farm all the animals are so spoilt (everyone knows their name and each will come running when their name is called), but each of them have a reason to be here. The goats for milk, cheese, and goats milk soap. The cows (we do send one calf to the slaughter house in the fall) the other calves are sold to help pay for things needed. The hens for their eggs and we do also order 50 chicks every spring for the freezer. We are in no way close to being self sufficient, but we are trying I feel like one of these days our goal will be met!
