Yep, another one finished. Just got it done. This pattern is called BonBon and it reminds me of gumballs in one of those old fashioned candy machines I remember from my youth. It was actually kind of hard to finish considering all the excitement around here the last 2 days. Of course, just in time for the weather to get nasty, Little Miss Tinkerbell kidded for the first time. She had twins! It was a little touch and go there for a bit since she wasn't too sure what to do with them. Nut, instinct did take over and she tended them like an old nanny would. Now, the suckling thing was a whole story on it's own! Of course, being a new Mom, she couldn't figure out what they were doing and every time they'd almost get a nipple, she'd turn in a circle around them. So, Gramma to the rescue, a little kid colostrum to give them some strength and by the end of the day, they were sucking and she was okay with it. Today, they're still alive, sucking and doing what all baby goats do, sleeping! Pictures soon!
Yes, all of 2013 and part of 2012 are missing from the blog. You can thank Mike H for that. Almost all of those posts were about our great friendship and our partnership in farming. You all know how that turned out!
