  meat from our goats
I usually send the weathers to market and pick one up and drop him off at the butcher, I know that the ones I sell are going for the same purpose, but I just can't, although we did have one this year, put a hole in the new hay barn door, I could have done myself, we made the mistake of not having them dehorned, and when he got up to 65 lbs, he hit the door and riped, and yu know the rest

Come visit me, Lori's Goats.

We raise Nubians, with a little Alpine thrown in. Kidding starts anytime, I was off for 2 days, and nothing. So, I know they'll come tomorrow! Next year we plan on using a Boer buck.

  Something interesting that just happened: I collected the eggs from my 3 white-egg-laying chickens (I sold the other 22 two weeks ago). My chickens have been giving about 1 or 2 eggs a day total. However, I just got 3 white eggs and...1 BROWN egg!!!!! What? Oh, the unique things that happen on a farm!
