A Birthday, A Buck, & Snow

Yesterday we celebrated my son’s birthday. My baby boy is now 12 years old! Where does the time go?





Yesterday evening Quentin & Quentin Jr. took Madison to buy a Nigerian buck for our little goat herd. She chose a small, gentle 18 month old with no horns and named him Buddy. There were plenty of baby bucks to choose from, but she is still busy bottle feeding Pippi. Buddy has already had babies so he already knows how to do his job. We are hoping for goat milk this summer! I wonder if we will like it right away or if we will have to learn to like it? πŸ™‚ Here’s Buddy.

While everybody else was gone to get Buddy, McKenzie and I did outdoor chores and some sledding. We still have snow and ice from Wednesday, and we got more snow this morning.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!

  1. Happy Birthday to Quentin, Jr. They sure do grow up fast. You are getting quite a goat herd. We haven’t had ice like that, but we still have some snow on the ground from Christmas evening.

    Have a wonderful day with your family.


  2. Happy birthday to Quentin, Jr.! πŸ™‚
    I’ve been enjoying your pictures. Glad you had a nice Christmas. We were visiting with family in Alleghany County, so we got some snow too. The goats are just so cute.
    Hope you have a great weekend!

  3. Great pictures! Buddy is a very handsome goat. When we were leaving Pippi was calling to me to come and see her. I, of course, had to go check her out. She is adorable. We had a great time today. Thanks for the soup. Just what I have been wanting. Talk to you soon. God bless. P.S. I can’t wait to taste your goat milk!!

  4. Your goat herd is looking good! Milking will be a great experience – we kept our daughter’s 4H milkers (Oberhaslis) and some Alpines for about ten years. We enjoyed it immensely.
    Happy New Year!
