We have had 2 baby goats born so far - on February 3rd, Audrey had a girl we named Blossom. A week later, on February 10th, Amber had a boy we named Bugaboo.
We also signed a contract with a llama farm in Michigan to purchase 1 male cria (baby llama) to be our future herdsire and 2 female llamas who will come to us pregnant. With the other female we have purchased from the farm in Wisconsin, we will have a herd of 4 registered llamas. The plan is to neuter Scotty Llama so he can be housed with the new male llama and keep him company. We are not sure yet if we will keep Lucy Llama or sell her.
We are so excited about the growth of our farm and at the opportunity to show, breed, and sell our registered mini silky fainting goats and llamas!
Last week, we sprayed our fruit trees with an organic mix of neem oil, fish emulsion, activated microbes, and kelp. That was our "early season" or "week of quarter-inch green" spray. We will also spray again soon at petal fall and first cover (7-10 days following the petal fall spray).
Here are some pics from the past few weeks on the farm:
