Yesterday I sent a few goats off to new homes. A wonderful lady contacted me about the twins – she is a 4-H leader and needed some Mini Lamanchas for her 4-H kids to do as projects. I’m so proud that my goats get to go compete at the fair this year! The 4-H kids are going to be wonderful owners for the twins, and will give them lots of attention and teach them some great manners that I don’t have time or patience for.
And for the big news – Luna went with them too. We are a little sad that she’s gone, but this is such a great home for her that I couldn’t say no. The farm they are going to is huge! with lots of other goats of all kinds and plenty of people around and room to play. And for the goats that have rough starts in life like Luna – there is a goat nursery set up so that she can grow up with other special little goats and have real goat friends. Depending on how well she grow she will either get to be a 4-H goat, or she will be a star in the petting zoo that the lady owns!
We are left with the cute little buckling and he is quite a looker so I think someone will take him as soon as I advertise him.
I am thrilled that the milk supply will be mostly mine again. (I caught the twins nursing not only Perdy, but Cinderella too! the little stinkers!) The crazy goat-shuffling all day schedule is reduced to peaceful and quiet milking in the morning and evening. Perdy and Cinderella are back to their quiet laid-back personalities that I love. I survived another kidding season and have a few months before I have to think about breeding again.
Sweet little Luna
