Farming is hard. Farming is constant. Farming is expensive. Raising animals comes with a lot of good and bad. It's not our livelihood and not how we support a family financially. We could easily pack up and move to the city and have a "normal life" So why do we do it? Take a look at the pictures below and hopefully the pure joy you see and feel answers that question. It's the small moments in the thick if it that is life that brings joy, happiness, and peace in our hearts. It's what I hope our kids remember when they are telling their grandchildren about their childhood.
We have babies! We have three doelings and three bucklings on the ground and doing great. All are nursing, running, playing, and being active, social, and way to cute. We are retaining our doelings but our three bucklings need new homes. They make great pets and if you are looking for a farm stud then these will be great for you. All three come from proven bloodlines. Born on the Texas Skyz farm, the kids' sire, Fortune Teller, is the grandson of Agape Oaks Oreo. The dams are out of Texas Skyz and Ricketts 4 Farm. They have been disbudded and will be ready to go at 8 weeks old! We like to keep them on their dams until time to wean. The are beautiful and are getting a lot of socialization with the goat kids and with all of the human kids on our farm. Call or email if you have questions or are interested in one of our boys!
We are continuing to build out our new buck pen. 95% of the cedars are down and burned. Fence posts are in the ground and we are welding all of the top rails. Lots of welding, grinding, and painting going on. We hope to have the fence and buck house up in the next 6 weeks so we can move the bucks (our new herd sire buckling should be coming in 2 weeks) in before the does kid mid-July.
