"Obviously I'm not an expert, but I would say that "not high" levels of sulfates for humans might not equal the same for goats. I would say it's the sulfur in the water, especially if you can smell it. "

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?
