So today I made sure Prairie Granny and I became "proper women". Today is Prairie Granny's birthday! So what do you get a woman who has very few "wants". You get her a goat! Well, we're going to share the goat. I get to do the lion's share of the care and milking and Granny get's to enjoy her.
So world, meet "Ivy"!
She is a three year old, Toggenburg dairy goat. Togg's are mine and Granny's favorite breed. She is friendly and sweet and great about riding in the back of my car! She's expecting babies in the spring. I can't wait for them and the fresh milk too!
A friend of Ivy's came along to keep her company. Goats get very lonely without another goat buddy to talk to. The lambs are not sure what to think of their new paddock mates! But my big boy is very excited that we have a goat again and I'm pretty sure this was a perfect birthday surprise for Granny.
We're off to birthday dinner!
Bye for now,
