August comes to an end as quickly as it arrived. - Original Post date - 08/31/2011
Where does the time go? I can't believe that today is the last day of August already! The nights are getting colder and the fog a little thicker as summer comes to an end. I have noticed a lot more leaves on the ground lately. Before we know it fall will be in full swing!
Still no babies to report but Dixie is in the kidding pen and not very comfortable today. She is eating like a horse as well so she must be getting ready! If she gets any bigger I fear she will burst. It is hard to tell in the photo because of her ear but she is WIDE!
Trixie is still sick. We had our vet out again today to deal with the large abscess she had on her jaw and to take more samples for testing. She is now in isolation from the rest of the herd and not happy about it at all. I hope we find answers soon for her so we at least know what she is dealing with. She still has milk but if she was bred she would be due now as well as Dixie and she just doesn't look pregnant! Once she
is better we will be able to ultrasound her to see if she has babies.
Daniel has been busy job hunting again. He has had 3 job offers in the last week which is awesome for him. None will start until after this weekend though so once they come through with some hours he will be able to decide where he wants to work.
Alyssa left for PEI today. She left us on Sunday to head to her Dad's house to finish preparing to leave. They will be driving through the USA for the next couple of days to get there and she has already been sending me pictures from her phone! It is very quiet without her here. I miss her antics and the guaranteed laugh. I look forward to seeing her on Skype when she gets settled.
The Stisted Fall Fair is fast approaching. I hope that I will have some goats to show that day! With Dixie in the kidding pen and Trixie out of commission, that leaves only Billie and Bonnie to show. I guess we will just have to wait and see next week!
