News, Old and New

Some people came last weekend to take a cheese class. It was very boring, they did not bring any treats for me.

Zane Grey and Mr. Jimmy and Franco are on 'weaning.' This is where you do not get any milk. Their sorrow is very sad. Their cries fill the air. I am thinking of writing a poem about it.

I am not on weaning because I am Baby Belle, Jr. I signalled to the farmer that I did not care to join the weaning club. Maybe next year.

Aunt Blue went on the milkstand today for the first time. Except for coming in the milk parlor through the back door, which is normally not allowed, she was a complete professional. The farmer is going to start sending the milk to the test lab again.

I am sure some of the LaManchas will get a lecture when the results come back, because Aunt Blue will have the highest butterfat as usual unless Jammies the sad-eyed minimancha is able to beat her. I am rooting for Blue because she is my aunt, although Jammies is my cousin so I may switch and root for her if she wins.

The farm store is supposed to open soon selling cheese and eggs and a few other things. But we will see if that happens, things don't always happen on schedule around here.

I just found your blog - love pictures of little goats. I just always want to wrap my arms around them an give them a hug. Strange, yes I realize this. I've loved them since I was a child.
Cute pics - where are you located?

*sigh* I love this blog. I love Baby Belle,Jr. and the other sweet and naughty little goats. I have a special place in my heart for "the farmer". A poem Millie about the goats "on weaning" would be special :)

There should be a sign on the entrance to the farm that say"All visitors must bring treats for cute little goats!"

And even not so cute little (and big) goats. Goats do not believe in treat discrimination.
