Homestead Happenings 10/6/19
Life on the farm always has ups and downs. We've had some of each this week, but as usual, the ups have outnumbered the downs. For instance, we have had baby goats born almost every day!
First, on Sunday, Pearl had triplets. Meet Parley, Parfait, and Parkour!
On Monday, Alabaster had twin boys that we named Dang It and Darn It! To hear the reason behind their names, watch this Facebook Live.
Tuesday, Topaz went into labor. It was a very difficult birth and the first one didn't make it. We tried everything including mouth to mouth, but nothing worked. It was a very sad loss, but we are happy that we were able to save his siblings and mom. Meet Thistle, Thrasher, and Thimble!
On Wednesday we had even more babies! Flo surprised us all and had triplet doelings. Meet Flora, Fauna, and Merriweather!
Our beloved barn cat John-Boy passed away on Wednesday. We are devastated by this loss. He is truly going to be missed.
We didn't have any baby goats born on Thursday, but Kellie from MI brought 50 bushels of apples!! Unfortunately, we forgot to get pictures before Mason processed them all.
But on Friday, we woke up (Mason got a text from the Patron moderators, and went to help deliver) to another baby on the farm! Sara had one doeling, who we named Sheila!
Saturday, Integrity had triplet boys! We named them Impediment, Impressive, and Impartial!
I love seeing all the little baby Nigerian Dwarf goats running around, they're just so cute!
