Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats

for people who love the littlest dairy goats

Madison, the littlest goat born @ Pink Roses Farm this year is doing much better! She's still eating around 2 oz at each bottle feeding. When she eats less at one feeding tends to make it up at the next one. This evening she ate 2.5 oz. She is also not shaking anymore, and doing better every day in terms of walking and getting up. She is outside all day now except for feedings and is starting to play more with her sister and half brothers.

I have been milking her mom twice a day Since they were born to get milk for Madison, and to freeze some for an emergency next year. The first few days I did not get much, but she is improving every day! By the 5th day she gave 6 oz 6th day 14 and today 21 oz!! I seriously cannot wait for next week when I start putting babies up at night and milking in the morning!

Everything around here takes forever and a day to get done! So I am really excited that tomorrow I am getting the boys cattle panel pens and they will be arriving with my mentor whenever she comes. I have been waiting for someone with a truck who could help for weeks and weeks!

Also I am off for a couple days and we can get the cutting tools to make the milk stand we already marked pieces for...been asking for that since early summer!!

Getting a new roof on our house!! Needed that for more than a year...now we can keep our homeowners insurance that they have been trying to cancel since before Christmas.

It's almost my birthday, and I gave my mom a list of stuff I wanted...I hope she picks the cheese making kit or the step stool tool box!Any of the other stuff would be fine too!

Stuff is finally getting done, and I like it!

Yay! Congratulations on everything! I think stuff takes forever to get done on any farm, so don't beat yourself up too much. I can't believe it took us so long to try making our own hay feeder. My husband made it in about two hours!
