We had a  busy but  blessed Fall on the farm this 2013. The  fiber show  in Tunbridge Vermont was a  learning experience,  as well as a chance to meet some the smartest people in the goat  world!

 

 

 

We were very happy with the show results  which placed Olga second best  in her doe class.  She is  one big  puff ball right now , full of cashmere.  The judge commented several times on her stout  strong body style as  a strength, as well as the  production of her cashmere.

Matthew placed  second at our local grower Giant Pumpkin Festival in October  winning $100.00. Not bad for a  throw and  grow pumpkin in the mulch pile. We are  buckling up the farm for the winter with heated water buckets , heat lamps , and hay. We will welcome Vina back soon from being bred  by one of Yvonne Taylor’s  bucks from Maine. This might mean twin kids  in the Spring!

It time to get ready on the farm  for the  sudden changes of  Winter .  Hooking up heated water buckets, lamps and  stacking hay. The animals seem to  sense  the  upcoming changes with their recent calm and still temperament’s.  They once again remind me to embrace the  transition rather then balk about it.
