I should post updates more often. I really should. I mean, lots of interesting stuff happens here (or at least, it's interesting to ME). I should stop playing that really addictive game on Facebook and start a new blog post.
So here you go.
It's most definitely autumn here on our beautiful mountain. I wish the fall colors would last all winter. That would be a mood-brightener!
We're going to be processing the last batch of meat chickens for the year in a few days. Maybe Friday? I hope it will be warm and sunny by then because right now the weather forecast says SNOW tonight and tomorrow. SNOW! It's still October. We're still on Daylight Savings Time, for crying out loud!
In other news, the baby is still cute. See? She likes to stand in the field and help us move goats around to fresh pasture.
Soon there won't be any fresh pasture to move them to, and we will have to move them to their winter quarters and feed them hay. We have bred a handful of goats - two dairy and four meat - for January kids. Those goats will get to live in the barn because having kids in January is stupid. So we'll be ready with heat lamps to keep those kids warm and dry and alive. The rest of the goats are going to be bred for April kidding, which is much more sensible. So now you know.
Can I go back to that addictive game now?
