Three new babies arrived early this morning! Gypsy Moon SD Airianna kidded with three does sired by Gypsy Moon MO Starbuck. Airianna is very proud of the work she has done LOL Names will be announced after the holiday. At least one of these does will be available.
I am quite excited to get our new goat collar system up and running. We bought some plastic chain, and blank tags, and had these little carabiners made with our website address engraved on them to tie it all together. Each goat tag will be color coded with their name (pink for girls, blue for boys, orange for wethers) and on the back we will write their birth date and add other information such as due dates, etc. We think that it will work pretty well, and it will save us from having to grab a collar and chase a goat when we need them. Anything to save time and stress is GOOD! =)

Over the past couple of months, we have been slowly but surely getting our new milking parlor completed. The new parlor sits where a HUGE pile of parts, tools, junk and scrap metal that has resided there since before we bought the place. See the progression of the space below!
Just a reminder that Airianna is due to kid near the end of this month, and reservations are still open for her doe kids. She's as big as a house, and we are looking forward to seeing her udder this freshening (2nd). To reserve a kid from this breeding, simply send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me that you want on the list. There is no deposit necessary until the sale is agreed upon. Her doe kids will be $450, her unregistered bucklings will be $200, and her wethers will be $125. Airianna has one more win for her permanent champion status, and udder genetics are TREMENDOUS on this breeding.
