"OH! I didn't remember/realize she's a larger breed doe! That's a good call, to assume a possible longer gestation on her, then. "

"Does don't go over their due dates by that many days (161 from the first breeding) so I'd say you're right on target for a due date with the second breeding! Can't wait to hear how many she had! "

"From the side, her udder looks decent to me. She def. looks like she's got nice teats. You can ask the seller how her udder feels at milking... (is it meaty or soft after milking?) Meaty udders can often *look* good, but still have a little bit…"

There have been a few conversations about how to provide warmth safely to your goats, and I have mentioned the way a nearby farm hangs their lamps as a very safe way to do it. Until now, I haven't…Continue

Hi Rachel, I have a question about some barn records that I got from a woman who has a doe I'm interested in. However, it's Greek to me! Can you explain?

Here are my numbers for Jazz:  2013 is her first freshening (triplet bucks).  I began to milk her at 15 DIM - She averaged 1.1 lbs/milking, twice a day milking (for DIM 15-25) and was nursing 1 kid (other 2 were re-homed)
DIM 26-56 .93 lbs/milking , twice a day milking (kid re-homed 50 DIM)
DIM 57-78 .8 lb/milking (once a day) - she was then dried up.

Thanks a Million!

Raquel, talk to me about top bar bee hives. ^^ I no nothing about bees - except that I want some. I saw instructions on a Pinterest site but I dont like the roof he made. It is a blue barrel hive. How did you do your roof? And when you do have bees - do you open both holes - or just one. ??

Thanks for the numbers Rachel. That is really sweet of you. I am going to fix her an emergency numbers board for goats and I will put them on there so they don't get lost along with some vet numbers and a few others.

Raquel, I looked at your artwork.  Is all of that you? The Mixed Media and Collage?  Those pics are incredible - wow. How cool is that?
