... we recently enjoyed a wonderful visit with extended family. I had not seen one of my aunts and cousin in 25 years. I can not express how blessed we all were to have them visit. I've prayed for restoration in my family for more than a decade and I am confident our Lord is working that out.
I am so glad we have finished kidding. It was a tough season for us. We lost 5 babies, one doe, 3 of our does had miscarriages, and we had to pull one kid that was stillborn. I am glad it is over. We ended up with two bottle kids, Tuffy and Cotton. Tuffy, the little black kid was a preemie and could not push up on his front legs for more than two weeks after birth. Cotton, the little blonde kid was born to a doe who was having some health issues and was not producing any milk.
As you can see from the photo, both Tuffy and Cotton are now doing well. They follow me around and were a big hit with younger children at the rodeos. Yes, I had to take these two with us because I am still bottle feeding them every 6 hours.
We have 5 kittens (baby bunnies). Three are gray, one is black and one is white with gray spots. I've sold three of them to a 4-Her and they are ready to go to their new home this week. I am excited to see how they will place at this year's county fair.
It appears all the goings on have made Farmer Boy as tired as I am. Yesterday I caught Farmer Boy "walking" his 4-H lamb, Chuckles - hee! hee! I had a good laugh when I saw this and I hope it brings some laughter to your day as well.
