A Great Day!

Hello everyone! I am on the home stretch! I can see the light! I have nine days of school left before that summer vacation begins! I can't believe that I am almost finished with my freshman year of high school. Man does time fly. I feel like I just started to homeschool yesterday and here I am with the end of freshman year just around the corner! Along with almost being finished with school, I have also been working a lot with Iris. She is improving and learning a lot. I really am having a blast with her and I can't wait to see what the future will look like with her and I. 

I've been working a lot with my goats as well. I finally have Angora goat does and one dairy goat doe too! There must be something in our water because we don't usually see a lot of doe kids born here!  Every kidding season, there will be a ratio of 1 doe to 3 bucks born if not more bucks! I was just glad to finally see some does especially out of Cocoa, who I've only ever had one buck from. This year, Cocoa had triplets! One doe, Mo Mo, and two bucks, of course, but at least there is a doe in there. I also have little Shadowcat who had twin does. Shadowcat is an Angora goat that always had does. This year, she had two jet black kids, Sabrina and Nixi. Sabrina has a little white spot on her head but Nixi is all black. There is also Elle who kidded for her first time this year. She did a great job and, she even had a doe! Her little doe kid's name is Ondina. Then there are the bucks, Cam, Cocoa's two little boys who still need names, and Little Squirt who will be going to a new home with his mom soon. Queen bee, my Leicester Longwool sheep, had her first lamb this year. If you haven't already guessed, it's a ram. I haven't named him yet, but he is a noisy little guy. I think he takes after his mom on that part.

I am really looking forward to what will come of this years kids and lamb. I can't wait to show them at the 4-H fair this August!

Little Ondina!
