Spring Farm Pictures



Maude took a trip today to Goodman farms where she'll be staying for a few weeks visiting with her new boyfriend Mr. Angus and his other girlfriends.


Well I went to a sale today to try and sell some goats and ended up buying 7 rabbits much to my wife's chagrin. Finn is ecstatic though. 

Well I bought a new gilt to add to our breeding program about two months ago but she ran away; Jumped right out of the back of my horse trailer. This past week I got a call from a neighbor that he'd made a catch pen and caught her. So after much worry and frustration she is now getting acquainted with the rest of the bunch a month and a half late. 

One of our many new arrivals this spring is this little mini-mancha buck who showed up this week. His mom is giving lots of milk and I started milking her. Smelled fine but tasted awful; not sure why. 

Trying to get the aforementioned moms goat to let this baby be hers too since this baby's mom got sick and doesn't have enough fluids to nurse a baby (but is doing better).

  1. It seems your farm has increased exponentially since you last posted pictures. Where does a runaway pig for six weeks?
