On the family front everyone is doing well. I am still sick though and have been undergoing additional procedures since my surgery to try to make me well. Nothing has really worked so far but I remain optimistic! Daniel has started dating a new girl named Erica, and we all agree that we adore her! She is great for him and we love her attitude. They also are just adorable together and she fits in nicely with everyone in the family. Welcome Erica!
We have purchased a new buckling! He will be a very important part of our herd here as he was imported from New Mexico and is a moon spotted buck! Moon spotting is highly sought after and very hard to come by in Canada. He is currently in quarantine but we hope to bring him home this weekend! We are naming him Prairie Wood's Noway José, and will call him José for short. We are very excited to have him join us!
We have decided to sell our larger animals to make more room and free up some of our time as we are so busy it is getting hard to ensure everyone is getting the attention they deserve. Brady went to his new home in McKeller, ON a few weeks ago and is doing really well there. Lynn, my beloved mare has gone to a farm in Hearst, ON to become a beginner voltige horse! I miss her terribly but know she will be wonderful there and she has gone to an excellent home. We are still hoping to find a new home for Annabelle. We are content to keep our donkeys of course but if we can find them a good home then we will let them go.
Goat show season starts up soon for us! The first CGS sanctioned show is in Schomberg, ON on May 27th and we hope to attend and perhaps show if we can get all the paperwork in order before hand! We will hopefully be enjoying some great successes in showing this year culminating in the big show at the Royal Winter Fair in November!
