|Cricket resting by the pond, end of February, 2011|
They have rather loud voices, so the neighbors checked outside at least once and now the sheep flock and the dairy goat flock think that I really ought to feed them a midnight snack, since they are all up anyway. It's nice of the angoras to sleep through it all.
Her babies this year are a splashy colored buck and a creamy white doe. The buck will be ready to head to a new home in a few days as a bottle baby. I think the little girl will be Geode, but I might think better of that by the light of day.
Beanie had her kid last night. A sweet little red doe that we named Ginger.
Our flocks have lambed and kidded mostly in the daylight for years. I don't know what's changed them this year. At least we've been blessed with good strong kids and lambs.
I hear babies crying... back out to check and then hopefully back to bed for a bit.
Got a really busy few days coming up at work and in the Guild.
