On the Bright side

Anytime farm babies are bought or born, there is still a cause for
celebration. We had an adorable new Nubian buckling born (and who is for sale) Tuesday, March 1st, on his due date. He is out of Candy / By Ace.

Then a friend picked up a Buttin Heads Nigerians Buckling for
us on Wednesday!  He was an amazing price if picked up before
1 week of age and his genetics are hard to beat.

He is ADGA Registered
Dam has dry leg

Our kids already on the ground are growing well and
doing great! All of those are Miniature Nubians.
They are F1 and registerable.

Doelings are $300 ea or a discount can be offered on both. They are
out of different dams. Mini Buckling offered asa wether for $125 or
as a buck for $300.

Beyond the goats, the garden is coming along, soap making
is on the horizon, and we are still hopeful some chicks
will live through the 'Bater disaster!



Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds. For riches are not for ever: and doth the crown endure to every generation? The hay appeareth, and the tender grass sheweth itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered. The lambs are for thy clothing, and the goats are the price of the field. And thou shalt have goats' milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and for the maintenance for thy maidens

- Proverbs 27:23-27

"I know of no pursuit in which more real and important services can be rendered to any country than by improving its agriculture, its breed of useful animals, and other branches of a husbandman's cares."
