Lacey is a weird goat, she likes to stand up on the fence or on the side of the shed and roll her head around. There is not anything wrong with her, she is perfectly healthy. In fact this behavior is typically followed by her taking off happily hopping and kicking in play. I can only assume she does this because she thinks it is fun, maybe in the same way my sister and I used to roll down hills as children. There was no point to it but we would stand up at the bottom of the hill covered in leaves, dizzy and laughing just for the fun of it, or maybe Lacey is doing neck exercises because she is worried about getting a double chin....who knows, she is a weird goat.
In other news, the corner hay meadow has been burned off, we will see a quick green up of the field after a rain. Hopefully we will put up some good hay for our goats and horse from this meadow and the other hay fields later in the summer.
In other more annoying news I am still waiting on the seeds I ordered from Park Seed. My order was placed back on February 23rd, but for some reason that was never explained to me they waited until March 4th to send them, or in other words over a week for them to get around to even mailing them and charging my credit card despite that I got an order conformation that these seeds would ship "now" in my email the day I ordered them. I was never sent a follow-up email or any kind of communication from them to let me know. I only found out when I called them on the 4th after the seeds did not arrive. The person I talked to did not seem to know much of what was going on and he offered no apologies or explanations other than to say "they usually ship out in 24 to 48 hours". I am hoping they did get mailed out this time and will be here soon since some of them need to be started indoors some time before the last frost and I am anxious to start planting!
Animals on the Farm
Becky asked what animals we have on the farm, so here is a quick run down of them. We have 24 goats right now on the farm, but 14 are bred and due to kid in the next month. We also have 4 Great Pyrenees dogs, 2 lazy, no mice catching cats, and a horse. We have plans to add chickens to the farm this year as well. I will manage to refrain from boring you with a list of all their names, though it isn't easy. (Yes, they do all have names) Thank you for your question Becky.
The goats are unhappy with me today since it was vaccination day and they all had to get shots. If they are unhappy with me today, just wait until tomorrow when the rest of them get their hooves trimmed.
