Star Popped!

She had two girls today around 5pmish.  More tomorrow after we get our 3 hours and 45 minutes of sleep before we get up to check on and feed everyone.  (One kid is nursing well and is with mom, the other is wrapped up in a towel, lying on the heater in the house and is weak and not eating well.  We fed her with a syringe.  Keep your fingers crossed for her!)

About The Goat Cheese Lady

I am Lindsey. At first I was a city girl. Then I was an urban farmgirl, attempting to balance city and farm life. Now, after moving to the country, I have embarked on life as a rural farmgirl, complete with my husband, the Animal Whisperer, man of exceptional knowledge and patience, two boys who are louder than my sister and I ever were, a herd of milking goats, and a flock of egg-laying chickens. Coyotes, mice, country dogs and prairie dogs are frequent visitors. Just 45 minutes north is Colorado Springs, the setting for our first six years in the goat world. Our family. Our city friends. Our introduction to cheesemaking. But we...and our growing farm and soon-to-be creamery...have set up shop down off of Highway 115 in Penrose, Colorado.

  1. They’re cuties! Another thing I have tried is keeping them with Mom if she’s not mean to them even if I have to feed them for her. Makes for future family bonding in the herd. It’s neat to see my 3 generations napping together as adults sometimes, they don’t forget who’s who. Call if you need anything!

    • Good suggestion! Rain (the weak one) is down with mom and sis right now…we’ll feed her down there too, except for maybe at night. We’ll see. First step is to make it through the day =)…and you can bet I’ll call you!


      • Sounds like a plan. Once she gets stronger too you can keep her in a cool or even cold room of the house to make acclimating to outside nights easier. I just like having them inside for the middle of the night feedings then once you can get to 3 times a day they can be out if they strengthen up. Good luck and we’ll keep up hopes she’ll learn to latch on!

    I knew it! My vote was Star too. I feel for the first time mom… I know how it is. Hurry up and come already! 🙂
    Hope the little one gets stronger quickly.

    My vote yesterday was for Star! Hoping the weak one rallies and is able to rejoin Mom and Sis.
