God has a bigger plan for us. The last couple of weeks have been so rough, I was starting to question whether He was trying to tell me that I needed to quit doing this. I've been praying about it constantly.
Last Wednesday, the Auburn University Dairy Group came out to the farm. I was nervous and excited at the same time and honestly felt like I was about to get a colonoscopy.
They brought 2 vets and 6 students. It was such an amazing experience! All the goats got a thorough exam and they thought all my animals seemed really healthy. They took milk samples from all my does- I'll get results this week. The May DHI results came in last week and everything looks good there too.
They ran diagnostics on all my equipment and it's all in good working order. In fact, everything looked so good they asked if I would be willing to host the "Small Ruminants" class every winter as part of their curriculum! Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined that my little farm would be part of the curriculum of a large university!
It was reaffirming to hear that I'm doing things right and it goes to show that God has bigger plans for us than we can imagine.
