Dahlia was born first and Vinca really had to push hard!
Little sister Camellia wasn't far behind.
Sweet Camellia was very weak from the start. We gave her a supplement shot to help out with her wobbly hind legs and gave her bottles as she just didn't get the hang of nursing from mom. She continued to lose ground and we lost her on Wednesday.
Dahlia is doing just fine but cannot keep up with the milk supply. She enjoys hopping around at milking time! We are looking forward to Echo providing some playmates for her!
This post is not just about goats, fascinating as they are - The turkey poults are getting some feathers.
And the pea sprouts are ready to harvest for salads - they are delicious!
As my broken arm heals, Kevin continues to experience new things - he baked the Saturday and Sunday morning muffins! He also has to wash the milking things twice a day - not a new experience but one he has mostly avoided in the past!
We were very excited on Wednesday when the truck delivering our new Winnow Wizard (seed/grain cleaner) arrived! Because of the muddy condition of our driveway, Kevin met the truck out on the road.
He did not get to the uncrating and the simple assembly until Saturday.
I watched, waiting to see the art on the side! As you can see, there aren't many of these innovative machines out there yet!
That's it! Until next time, stay home if you can and be well friends!
