Tempus fugit / time flees.

Kidding season started this year on Valentine’s Day; with twin doelings and now the calendar tells me April will soon be gone. How does it slip by so fast?

By design, kidding season was kept at a minimum. Only five of the dairy goats were picked to freshen this year, they were some of my older & heavier producing girls. They gave us 11 kids two were boys, and at this point in their lactation, giving a total of 6 gallons of milk a day. Most of my boer girls kidded, twins & a set of triplets in that group. Most of the girls gave twins, with a few triplet biths,didn't have any singles this year-bit of an oddity.

In the wee hours one day in February, managed to split my head open, required a trip to the emergency room & 6 stitches, My Aussie Sheppard, Sheila, wouldn’t let me sit down-which was all I wanted to do when it happened. She literally herded me back to the house and lay nearby as my daughter calmly took care of me.

March kept me buys with more kidding and just trying to keep on top of thing around here and getting the garden started. April has allowed me to get some new product going for the store and still left wondering….how does it slip by so fast?
