The last of the 70's

No, I am not talking about the 1970's. I am talking about temperatures. Today is supposed to be in the low 70's and then... 50's and 60's as far as the weatherman can see. ( or predict ) There are a few nights coming up that they are calling for 30's! Here it comes folks. Winter is just around the corner. We are still trying to get firewood stacked in. The tractor is not progress is slow. I pulled a few of the carrots last week. I am pretty impressed that they did so well.
They are not HUGH, but as I say.... better than none! It is "breeding season" for the goats. Our little buck, Freddie is most likely the HAPPIEST boy around. He has 4 ladies he gets to date... one at a time. So for the next 2 or 3 weeks... Fred will be one happy little buck. Then he will be one tired little buck! He started his dating with Lulu, the mini Nubian. Oh boy. This is her first breeding and... well... lets just say.. I am not sure he was able to make his "impression" We will just have to see if she comes back in. This week he is with Abby. She is the oldest of all of our goats...and she knows exactly what's going on. The only issue there is she is a full size Alpine, Fred is a Pygmy. Short legs vs. tall legs = me having to "help". It will be exciting to see all of Fred's little offspring running around next spring. It will be even BETTER knowing we will have an abundance of milk! Today I will be puttering around outside... doing the little things that need to be done. Mostly I am planning to enjoy this weather.. mostly because, I just LOVE FALL!
