Goat Candy...

God gave to our Pilgrim's Farm...
not one...


not just two...


but, THREE!! goat kiddies now less than two weeks old


and they are taking the field by storm...
ruling on those rocks they love to romp and jump on


and not only did the Lord give us three kiddies...
but, three BOYS!!


Mama Farina came flying through with them on lovely colors


our first concern with three, turned out to be of no concern at all


with the comic scene of pushing and shoving and protests...


eventually...


they learned the art of taking turns


Mama Farina makes sure they all get their fair share of milk...
and none seem to be the runt in the bunch


ah! the sweet things of farm life
goat candy


May your day or night be filled with the sweet candy of God's grace.

  3. A wonderful little family - is it better to have males? Perhaps you have enough females? Always interested in the way things work...for instance 3 bull calves over here would not be welcome!
    Wishing you and yours every blessing in 2013.

    1. Joyce, I truly hate to say it, but, we do raise meat when they turn out to be boys. Although we dislike having to butcher any of our animals, we wanted to get away from commercial meats. Our animals have a good life and are well cared for through the end, unlike the horrible conditions of commercial meat animals. Thanks for visiting and commenting!

    1. Karen Deborah, we'd love to be able to keep all our goats, but we will probably have to sell them someday. We do raise meat, also, although we have been eating less meat as time goes by. We prefer raising our animals humanely and giving them a good life to the end, unlike commercial farm animals that often suffer from birth to slaughter. We treat our animals by the Lord's biblical standards and people around us here comment often that our animals are happy. I say this because I realize many people don't like the idea of butchering their own farm animals. Neither do we. Thanks for your visit and question!
