Kidding season has finally come to our farm!
We’ve been waiting (me, rather impatiently) for the day to come that Peaches, one of our pregnant does, would finally give birth. I was being SO impatient that I was beginning to believe that Peaches was not pregnant. That she’d been tricking us all along.
Well, Thursday morning, her water broke.
And, Friday morning around 2 am, she had her baby boy. All on her own, with no help from any of us! (mostly, because we were all asleep.)
But, when the Animal Whisperer went down to check on her, to see if she had kidded, at 2:30 am, he found the baby already cleaned up by his mom.
He woke all of us up…the boys included…and we all went down at 3:30 am, in the 19 degree night, to stand in outside the nursery room stall to meet the little dude.
So, although we are happy to have a new baby around, I am most happy that it means soon, the milk will be a flowin’! More milk means more cheese! More milk means spring’s coming soon! More milk means ice cream!!! More milk means white, delicious, wholesome, as-nature-intended, abundance!
So, raise your glasses of milk and join me in a toast:
