On to the garden :D I am sooo ready to plant! I have been working on the size of the upper garden and am happy to say it will almost double in size from last years. What took the most time with regards to the extended garden was taking apart all the (over 40 years old) rabbit and chicken cages, they were so old some I pulled apart with my hands. My sister and I just finished with the cages yesterday and my nephew, being a good big brother took the scrap metal (his little brother helped so I gave him the scrap) so the next step is putting up the fence. I always use a 6 foot fence because between the goats, cows, chickens etc...I want to cover all the bases! It amazes me how the goats or cows seem to sense when the yard gate is left open even if only for a few minutes!
We decided after the price cow's went up to last year we better just keep our girls from last year and this year or we would never be able to afford to increase our heard!
We are also keeping Bella's calf on the left and Ellie's calf on the right
Callie (on left) also has a home, her mom Rosie is on the right
Sister is also staying, her and Callie were born spring of last year so we can breed them this summer.
I also got our three baby goats dis-budded last week, I swore I would never do this again but these are our future milk goats and since I have been horned a few times and cut up many cattle panels getting a goat horn out..........
All three by the next day were back to normal, the two babies on the left I have not named yet and Valentine is on the right.
Its been a while from my last post so I thought I would also include how many teeth my little one has lost since my last post. She has lost four teeth on the top and two on the bottom, now she talks with a lisp its sooo cute. :)
