I write to you this morning in my flannel PJ's with the heat blowing. We had a high of 49 with drizzle yesterday. You know how I love going out in the cold muck to take care of the critters....
I locked Scilla in the kidding stall for the first time last night. She has been losing small amounts of mucus for a couple of days and her udder keeps getting bigger. Her ligaments were still firm when I checked last night, but I didn't want to take any chances of the dog or other goats harrassing her if she decided to drop those kids over night. I still haven't been out to check today (see first paragraph to understand why).
My sister and her kids are visiting this week. Some spring break they're getting. At least Tuesday was beautiful and we managed to snap a couple good pictures.
Magnum and Bogo are getting bigger by the day. If you know anyone who is interested in an unregistered Lamancha with great bloodlines let me know. Bogo needs to be sold as soon as we have other kids.
