The kids got to run today, and they really enjoyed themselves. We had several things that kept part of the herd in the barn this week. We had snow, thick ice, snow again, and then the side door that the dairy herd exits from froze solidly shut. Today they got to experience the great escape!
The doelings in this photo range in age from 6 to 10 months.
The doe second to the left in the photo is nic-named Ski Slope because of her fun ears. Her mother is an american nubian, her daddy is an american alpine. He made a sneak midnight visit at some point, obviously, and returned home before we caught him. Tee hee. Anyhow, she is a nice doe. A chatter box. A joy.
The photo below is a close up of one of the alpine doeling twins, the youngest kids on the farm (until we have one tonight, perhaps).
I worked in the shop most of the morning. Today was a lotion making day. I have an upcoming store placement that I am preparing for.
