Busy & A Family Farm Visit

Its been a while since I've updated the blog, my apologies! Even though I'm working a little less for a short while the farm is taking up more time then ever with goats in milk and a barn FULL of rabbits!

A few weekends back I had a really nice visit from my immediate family; my mom, her boyfriend, and my grandparents all came to visit. I got to share my baby goats and kittens with them and all in all we had a wonderful time.

Here they are on the way to the goat paddock, my grandma has one of the kittens in hand!

Here's my grandpa with another one of the kittens

My mom and my grandparents each have a kitten in this photo!

By the way these kittens would still like good homes, they are learning to be mousers and are now mostly outdoor kitties but still have access to litterboxes if someone wants to transition them back indoors. They are VERY friendly.

Grandma meets the goat kids, everyone is excited!

Even the rear ends of goat kids are cute ;)

And finally Steve, my mom with "Mascara" Caddy's doeling who matched my mom's shirt perfectly!

I'm going to have more farm visitors this weekend so I'm trying to get the place cleaned up a bit since the majority of construction is now over for the season. The buck paddock was expanded so that the boys have a larger wooded space to play in which they seem to be enjoying. With all the outdoor projects at a wrap except for some debris pickup I'm trying to plan out how I want to fix up the backyard and garden beds, there's alot to think about.

Rabbits are all doing well, I lost my most recent litters I suspect to heat so I'm crossing my fingers my next 3 does kindle healthy litters, the 4th doe I bred did not take and its too late at this point to rebreed her for Convention juniors, they'd be way too young. At this point I have a few things to show at Convention and am looking forward to seeing how every bunny matures over the next few months.

Baby chicks will be arriving soon, I delayed shipment due to the extreme heat we've been having but I'll have a bunch of cute baby chicks on the farm again soon which will be alot of fun.

That's all the news for now, I'll try and update the blog more often and actually get to some website updates soon.
