Spring has Sprung!!!!

Hi everybody!  Aren't you just loving the weather?  Well, I am. It has been a very mild winter and now here we are in spring!! I think winter was so mild that it felt like spring sometimes.

We have had a lot of baby goats born. We have had 23 kids so far.  We have a break now and then there are three does that still need to freshen (deliver). There were 12 boy and 10 girls. We have sold some, some of them died (3) :( and we probably keeping the rest . I know that we are going to sell a couple of them. Elizabeth and I are going to keep two to use as market wethers for the  fair. We also had a baby calf born on our farm. His name is Bulls Eye. We have one other cow who is going to have a calf too.

Every thing is turning so green so fast that I hardly can keep up with it. I love watching how God makes  every change in the spring time. I love going out side in the morning having not to wear a coat. I also like watch the sun come up too.

Here are some pictures of our calf and puppies.
    This is Zoe. I think she is so cute.  We are keeping her.
This is Bulls Eye the calf.

       Here is a pretty sunset I took that I thought was very pretty. 
      I think God makes really beautiful sunsets.
