My apologies for being so bad at keeping this blog up to date. The holidays came and went here at the Meadows and I enjoyed a much needed and appreciated break. I used the time to recharge my batteries and take some quality time with my family and friends - human and
furry alike. I have to remind myself that it is OK to take time to remember why we all work so hard for the things we love and cherish. The holidays here were nice and quiet. We stayed home and kept things simple. The animals all enjoyed some Christmas treats and the mild weather. New Years was spent with some new friends celebrating with games and fun. Geordon and I are learning to let loose once in awhile and it has been fun learning to party as adults. NO hangovers though! We don't want those :) School is back in full swing again here now and it amazes me how quickly I am buried in assignments and due dates once again.
The winter weather is finally upon us with freezing temperatures and sunny skies. The goats are growing such thick coats they all just look like puff balls with feet. I feel bad for the bucks though. They don't grow the same fluffy coats and don't look nearly as warm as the females do. The babies are finally adjusting to the snow and have learned to play in it. It is fun to watch them
zipping around all the while trying to avoid any snow deeper than their little hooves. Before we know it, spring will be upon us again though and with spring comes new babies again! Bonnie should be due for kidding in early April with Dixie to follow hopefully in May. Dixie's breeding to Shaemus didn't catch the first time around so we are hopeful now that she is successfully bred again. Little wee Carmela is waiting her turn to bred. She should have no problem being bred as she seems to constantly be in heat! Her time will come late inFebruary. We are really excited to see what her kids will be like. We hope they
all get her great personality!
