Is she, or isn't she?
It's that time of the year again. Is Febe in heat, or isn't she? Every day, twice a day, I check. Not the nicest thing to do, looking at a goat's butt, but it has to be done. I can't tell by just looking at her. Maybe in twenty years from now I'll be able to tell, but for now I'll just have to keep looking at a goat's butt. They say that one way to tell is if they're more vocal. Well Febe is vocal all the time, so that doesn't help. So I'll just keep looking at the butt. I don't think that Whisper will be ready to breed this year. That'll be one less butt to look at for this year anyway. Phew... thank goodness.
We had a family day today. We packed up and went to the cattle sale. The piglets were going really low. Around 25$ each. Good for the buyer, not good for the seller. We brought our last piglet to sell but we brought her back home. We refused to sell her for less than 60$. One of our buyers backed out of the deal we had and we were able to sell one of their piglets but not the other one.
We met a nice couple that's just as crazy as we are. Maybe a bit crazier. They have 20 goats!!!Ack!!But we drove to their house after the auction.( No we weren't stalking them, they gave us directions to their house) We stayed there for 2 hours just chatting outside. J. was ready to go home after 10 minutes!
We were supposed to have our "End of Harvest Bonfire" for the church tonight. Well it rained and rained and rained some more this morning and most of the afternoon. So we had to cancel it. It seems like we had to cancel everything because of the rain this year.
My parents came over tonight to play "Wampoo". Oh man, we laughed so hard. It's fun to have a laugh so hard it hurts your sides, your eyes are all teary and you just about pee your pants.
Have a Blessed Evening.
