It’s been a full-on year thus far. I don’t know about you, but there have been projects and chores non-stop. Here’s a compilation of the goat kids over the past few months.

Lovely sunny January day. Enjoyed spending time with Iris and Alex today.

On December 26th, Iris and Alex went for a car-ride! I took Iris to be bred. In the video clip below, we’re being loaded onto the ferry.

If all goes according to plan, Iris should kid on May 26th or thereabouts! Stay tuned!

Sorry this isn’t an update, but here are some pictures and video of sweet Iris and Alex!

Iris & Alex

ETA mid April 2022. Two La Mancha goat kids (bottle babies). I decided it made sense to raise two goats rather than the herd-share arrangement which would last less than a year. It would be inevitable I’d bond with them and not want them to go!

I’m leaving the photo of sweet Stellaluna, because, well, she’s cute!
