So, what's up here at Bannerfield Farm? The grass!---and in a big way. So, our lives right now are about mowing, trimming and weeding and working on fixing the barn so that the threat of wetness is diminished during heavy rains. Its a jungle out there---but we are working to change that!
The goats are all well and some of the cooler nights have our does "in the mood for love". No way. I have decided that I will not do dead winter kiddings this year. Also, as I plan for next kidding season, I have come to the point where I can see a very busy spring for us. We are cutting the herd one year early now. We had always planned to cut to a very small number by 2015 (fall). But, with the early advent of college expenses for Bradyn and a variety of expenses needed to help launch him into his chosen career, we need to spend less on animals and more on our children. To our delight. Declan has asked to take cello lessons--and again, more demand on the pocketbook--but a good demand. So, while we are cutting the grass over the next few weeks, we will also be putting a lot of thought into cutting the herd, as well.
If you are a goat person--check out the sales page and keep checking. This is a very hard process for me and it is one that I will put great thought into.
Welcome to the Jungle---hopefully soon we will have it tamed and be on to our next adventure.
