Madison is the goat keeper on our li’l homestead. Last week she purchased a buck for our three does. Every few weeks or so they would go into heat like something crazy. We thought next cycle we would be ready when they started to squeal. 🙂
We sold Buddy, our old buck, last year when we decided to keep his daughter. I still miss him. Our new buck, Mr. Haney, came from here in Floyd. He lived a ways back in the woods. His owner retrieved him by roping him around his horns. Needless to say, we are having to tame him. He is coming around though. I, personally, like it when the goats keep their distance. I am always telling Madison to call off her goats! I am a bit of a scaredy cat. They are loads of fun to watch though. 🙂
Mr. Haney started to work right away, and I think Willow will kid the second week of June. I can hardly wait for all the cuteness!
Madison wants to try her hand at milking again. She plans on selling all the kids this year(so Mr. Haney will be staying around for a while) and buying a larger dairy doe.
I think Mr. Haney has been accepted and will have a wonderful life here on OneAndaHalfAcreHomestead.
