New Stuff For Sale!

UPDATE:  Technical Difficulties With Images Below…I Am In The Process of Fixing Them.  Sorry!

Every time, when I was little, that we went to the mountains to ski, we’d look for the “Stuff for Sale” sign.  It was in the yard of a run down cabin set right next to Highway 24.  Not too unusual, except for a few things:

1.  The cabin was really run down.

2.  The “Stuff for Sale” was painted on the door of an old, 50’s style curved refrigerator.  Except there was no refrigerator.  Just the door.

3.  The Stuff that was for Sale had been for Sale for going on about 15 years or so.  There were weeds growing up through the Stuff and most of the Stuff was rusted.

The cabin’s still there, but the Stuff must have finally sold, or been taken to the dump, or been covered up by dirt, because sometime in the late 90’s, it disappeared.  Along with, unfortunately, the sign.

But, in memory of it, here’s our Stuff for Sale:

 1.  Rain.  Born 2-24-11.   Nubian.  Both parents are registered.  Dam (mom) is a first time mom and had twins.  Rain’s sister already sold.  Rain has a teat abnormality (4 teats), comes from good milking lines and should be a good milker.   $100.

2.  Flash.  Born 3-19-11.  Nubian Alpine cross buck.  Sire is registered or is registerable, I’m not sure which.  $50.

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.
