All of the young "SISTER WIVES" are preparing for their honeymoon this week. There are 28 of them! If Romeo survives, we will have winter milk! Goats breed in the cool weather months, we are taking a gamble with our last year doelings( we let them reach maturity before we breed them), to see if any of them will get a hankerin' this late in the year. As it is still a might nippy at night, there is a good chance we may have babies again in the fall. Romeo is a young buck we raised  that will be introduced to his first females for a whirlwind of fun and frolic, that is unless the girls gang up on him and emasculate him before he has a chance to prove how macho he his. That has been known to happen! The Doe Motto: WE ARE READY WHEN WE SAY WE ARE READY, NOT WHEN YOU SAY WE ARE READY!!! Gotta love those goats! Coco Puff (pictured above) has that look of  breathless anticipation, actually more like borderline curiosity and shear boredom as her fate awaits her. Will keep you posted on the pasture paramours!  Still on target for the April 11 U-Pick date for strawberries, will post updated information. From our farmstead to your table thank you for all of your support!!!
