Now, for pictures of our girls!
This picture is of Honey when she kidded. We named the baby Eggnog. Honey was such a good mother!
This is Ivy. She is one of our middle aged milking does.
So far we are up to milking 24 does. We have had 48 babies so far this year and we have one more doe to kid still. Our first batch of babies were born in January and we had 31 babies born in 10 days! Jordan crocheted us some colorful little collars for each of the babies so that we could remember who was who! The first batch was weaned just in time for the wedding and our trip to Florida. The day after we got back home, it started all over again with the second batch having their babies. So far we have had 17 kids in the second batch.

Our milking herd this year consists of:
Cotton (our Saanen)
