Routine Again and Hard Choices

Life is busy! My sister and I recently got back from a trip to Mexico and ran strait into a brother's graduation and another brother's wedding! Life is good! When it's crazy and when it slows back down again.... I am hoping for some quite days ahead...

Part of life being busy is our goats. Recently I have been just a bit to busy and the barn has been just a bit to crowded. I've also being dealing with some very nasty pain in my hands while milking. I really can't keep it up.
Through a lot of different issues and all the things going on in my life we've decided to sell out of goats. It was a
very hard decisions, but I am confident it is the best one for my life right now. We will miss them! We bought our first girls in Jan 1999. Eleven years... Yes, we will miss, miss, miss them!

Thank you to those of you who have already given our goats excellent homes! We do have several left and I'm posting the list here.

Thank you to all of those who have sold us goats or bought goats and milk from us!

I'll be posting some new pictures soon. We are certainly having picture perfect weather here.
