How has your lambing been going? Did your Nubian wait till the due date to kid? I have had 4 of my does kid in the last three days. Two sets of twins and two singles. They are all doing well. I have to bottle feed one set of twins though as the mom doesn't have any milk and won't touch the kids! I have done this before though so its no big deal. Hope all is well on your end.
I just found out I am having a boy! Great to hear that you have some goat kidding experience! I have had three of my goats kid too early and lost five kids between them. I figured out that hubby had been giving moldy hay and now that is corrected I am hoping to have the other 8 does go to full term, which is just 2 weeks from now, without any complications and hopefully having happy healthy kids. Oh, to be so lucky ;)
Hi, it does sound like we have a lot in common. We are on an 80 acre farm and have cows, dairy and meat goats, chickens, rabbits, and sometimes a couple of hogs. When is your baby due? Mine is due July 18. I get a ultrasound in two weeks and I think its another boy. Hope all is well in your area.
Hi...I saw you on the homemaking/steading/schooling board. Just thought I'd drop a line and welcome you! I'm new to homeschooling too (just started with my 10yo daughter) and it's been the best thing ever!! We've only been doing it since November! Anyway...welcome to cafemom...it's a fun place!

I am a single mom with four boys and two girls. I live on a 62 acre farm where I raise goats, sheep, alpacas, and chickens. I am trying to create a self sustaining way of life. I grow a lot of my own vegetables. I am trying to create income and a market for the farm products (eggs, wool, milk). I homeschool my children. I have strong opinions on a variety of topics but don't expect people to share them nor do I judge people for having different ways of thinking or doing things. I am not new to this whole online community thing but I still feel like I am! I look forward to finding some kindred spirits.
