Ready to ply
We finally have snow all over the ground and I love it. Luke is enjoying running and bucking in it. The goats however, prefer to look at it from the barn door. They watch him as he runs out every morning and you see that they think he has lost his mind. The nights have been so cold, the guineas have been coming in and roosting with the chickens. This doesn't make the chickens happy at all. They prefer to have the guineas roost in the pine tree. I am missing a hen and I wonder if she is in the loft on a clutch of eggs. They have a way of hiding and being very quiet when you are looking for them. I really don't relish the thought of little peeps this time of year. I must dry up the last doe here in the next week, to give her 8 weeks to rest before she freshens again. I rolled oats this morning for breakfast and I told Tim this will be my last until March. I cannot stand to drink store bought milk. I don't like the way the goat milk tastes if you freeze it, so I am out of luck for a few weeks. Oh well, time will pass quickly. Hope you are enjoying your winter weather.
