Some good from heartache

I posted on a local goat facebook site that I was looking for orphans or rejected kids for my doe who lost her babies and really needed someone to love. More

Ginger lost her twins

First, Ginger’s due date was February 28th based on Day 143 which is when most of my does kid.  Gestation is officially 145-155 days.  On Monday, March 7th, Day 151, at 2:00 a.m., Ginger started calling but did not appear to be in labor as in no contractions.  More

Pregnancy test results

Pregnancy test results are back as of January 14th.   Big disappointment is that Summer is NOT pregnant and was dried up at the end of November so she would have a good three-month rest before mid-March kidding. More

Glenna’s ice cream recipe

INGREDIENTS

  • Two quarts whole milk (real milk not factory milk, IceCreamSigngoat milk is best with Nigerian Dwarf goat milk being supreme)
  • Two cups sugar (organic cane dehydrated sugar is what I use, have only been able to find it at Costco)
  • One dozen eggs (real eggs, again not factory eggs)
  • 2.5 Tablespoons of pure vanilla (again, pure, not extract)

Antiquity Oaks 100-yard ice cream

This maple syrup ice cream recipe is from Antiquity Oaks and is so named because all of the ingredients are produced within 100 yards of their kitchen.  Deborah Niemann says if you don’t have maple syrup, you can substitute sugar or honey and add a teaspoon of vanilla after the mixture boils and you turn off the heat.  I have tried this myself with the maple syrup and can say it is outstanding!

Ginger visited Stuart

Ginger decided today that she wanted to visit Stuart. More

Summer visits Stuart

Update:  Two breedings and January 14th blood test results showed Summer is NOT pregnant.  She was dried up to allow her a three-month rest before kidding – it’s going to be a lot longer than that now!
====================
After many weeks of watching and waiting, I finally caught Summer in heat. More
