It is finally starting to feel like fall around here. The nights are getting cooler and the days are lovely. We made a lot of progress on the barn over the last two weeks. With the help of both our dads, we got the loft built. Our next step is to build a block knee-wall at the top end to deflect water. We have the block, we just need to find someone to build it for us.

I picked the first ripe fig off my fig tree. It was small, but delicious!

I inserted a CIDR in Onyx to get her ready to breed next month. She wasn't too pleased with me. Inserting a hormone inplant in a goat's you-know-what is on my list of things I never thought I'd do.

The boys and I went to give Rudy the Watertower Rooster some food and water. All the was left of him was a pile of feathers. Poor Rudy.


  1. Yay for barn! Um yeah a goat's you know what...hmm... Excited that you are getting ready to breed though! Poor Rudy :(

  2. That is great news on the barn!!! So sorry to hear about your water tower rooster :(

  3. Proud of you, Sweetie. The place is looking good. Poor Rudy...poor Onyx. ;)
