Nothing to report.....no lambs, just sleepless nights, tea-time at 4 a.m. again this morning after a quick check of the barn, some snow and slush, and exhaustion! I'm too old to be on baby watch, but I can't sleep when the temps dip to brrrrrrrr! I worry....I'm good at that!
We have decided to sell our yearling Oberhasli dairy goats. Just can't divide my time between the needs of the dairy goats and the needs of the sheep....I want to concentrate on the sheep. It drives me crazy when I go to get some sheep snuggles (with a pocket full of animal crackers) and I have goats dancing on my back! They are on the smaller side of the goat scale, but they are NOT pygmy or Nigerian dwarf, that's for sure! I have thought of Angoras and/or possibly pygoras...anyone's thoughts out there? Am I asking for more trouble? I know that the Angoras aren't nuts like the dairy goats...what about the pygoras? Maybe small enough to blend with the smaller Shetlands? HELP! I think I'm suffering from lack of sleep.....
- Ken and I live on a small farm in Center Sandwich, New Hampshire in an area surrounded by lakes and mountains. We have 30 Shetland sheep , 2 llamas...Sam and Tim, 3 dogs, 40+ chickens and an assortment of ducks, geese and guinea hens. Life is sometimes hectic, but always good at Kindred Spirit Farm!
