Valentina’s Turn


She did it!

Valentina had a fast and uneventful delivery on Friday.

It’s a boy and a girl!

The boy, left, has Lamancha ears. (Daddy was Hickory, my Lamancha, who was sold after he did his job.) The girl, right, has Alpine ears from her mama.

I absolutely love this little girl, and am thinking about keeping her! (The boy will be for sale later.)

Meanwhile, I’ve got goat workshops coming up!

Goat Cheese, Soap & Cupcakes Workshops

From the barn to the kitchen, this full-day workshop has it all. Learn the basics of selecting and raising dairy goats, along with management, housing, feeding, and milking. Practice hands-on milking a goat then learn how to make your own goat cheese. You’ll also make a batch of goat’s milk soap as you learn the hot process method of soap making, then we’ll bake cupcakes, practice using decorating tips for beautiful creations, and make cupcakes in jars, ending your day with your own sweet treat! This day also includes plenty of chances to pet the goats, feed treats, and play with the babies! Take-homes include your own goat’s milk soap and cupcakes. 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Lunch is included. One-day workshop. $75.

  1. April 18, 2017 - Always A Good Day for Ducks

    Ducks love rain.

    The other day, I was watching an Alton Brown “Good Eats” episode about cooking duck and he was talking about the fat in ducks, which is related to why they can float in water, then mentioned the funny thing about that is that ducks hate rain.

    I was like….WHAT?! Clearly, Alton has never had ducks. THEY LOVE RAIN.

    I still love Alton Brown. But … Continued…

    Raindrops on cherry blossoms. You know it’s spring now!

  1. March 10, 2017 - Mommy and Baby Time

    Blossom and little Taco. (He’s like Blossom’s mini-me, isn’t he? He looks just like her.)

    Mommy loves her baby! But sometimes–

    Mommy just wants to be alone!

    And baby doesn’t understand!

  1. March 1, 2017 - All Heads In

    –as many as can fit, anyway!

  1. February 26, 2017 - Pepper In the Water

    Pepper loves water! Or–

    –she loves chasing ducks and chickens around, and running them out of the creek, for fun!

    (Precious is FINE, by the way, for those who asked. She doesn’t go to the barn yard, though. She has a healthy respect for ducks and chickens.)

  1. February 25, 2017 - Morgan In the News!

    Morgan was at the Capitol Rotunda in Charleston yesterday presenting her history poster with a group from WVU for an undergraduate research day–and made the news!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
