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.

    So cute! Love their black n white markings! And their ears too, no matter which way they go.
    Always happy to see your new babies.

    Such sweet babies. Sounds like I need to make another trip to West Virginia and play with the goats. :snoopy:

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....
