Baby Bump

We weren't sure that we were going to have kids on the farm this spring. I had already convinced myself that we were to be kid less. Honestly, I didn't think that Bucky got the job done if you know what I mean. I know that Janice from Stoney Knolls Farm was probably laughing at me. At last count they had 18 kids born. I can't imagine all of those kids but I sure would love to sit in the middle of them all with a bottle. Just imagine all the goatie love I would get. Well we wanted to rest Isobella this year. No babies for her.

No babies for Corina either.

Today I noticed baby bumps on both Bella and Sophie. Bella is on the left and Sophie on the right. Oh, that little Annie in the back is Isabella's little girl from last spring. She is definitely not pregnant. I'm so happy that our two girls are pregnant. I just don't think that we can milk more than two goats at one time. Then what would we do with all of that milk? This should be an experience in life for all of us. These two goats have never been milked. This is their first pregnancy. They are spoiled beyond belief. I will keep you all posted. I'm sure there will be plenty of laughs. These two girls were raised in the kitchen. Doesn't that say all?
I sent my check off for Goat School this spring at Stony Knolls Farm. Ted and I are going and are so excited. There is so much information that I feel like I missed the first time around. Janice and Ken Spaulding have been caring for goats for many years and they have so much information to share. Janice is a wonderful cook and has many recipes for a certain meat that we will leave nameless in respect for our caprine friends who read this blog.

Baby bumps, baby daddy, baby momma. All terms from this decade. Now we will start a new term. Goatie baby bumps. No, anyway. It is difficult to see if we have sheep baby bumps. So much wool. Take care and stay safe.
Much Love and Prayers from Mainely Ewes Farm

Take lots of pics again at Goat School! I enjoyed visiting it through your eyes last year. Wish it wasn't so far.

We don't do too much goat breeding, I like to enjoy just a couple of kids and Mama's in milk at a time.

I tried Blog2Print and my blog is so photo heavy, max of 1500 pics per Blog2Print book, I can't get even a year bound. I may call 'em though and see what they recommend. I would certainly treasure my blog in print.

I wanna go to Goat School too!
