Baby season is over.  Leanne had triplet girls, (Dolly, Emmy Lou, Wynonna), Jennifer had a boy and a girl, (Piney and Poppy)This is the first year we've had more girls than boys.  Next year I'm trying every old wives tale to help increase the girl numbers. Please submit any tips you may have. Thank you. I've decided to keep Gnocchi.  I usually lean toward Nubians for milking, but Lyra is 1/2 Nubian 1/2 Alpine and she has had an amazing first year.  Gnocchi is also 1/2 and 1/2, same mom, different dad. Lyra has had a long steady lactation and her milk is delicious. Plus Gnocchi is really cute and sweet - isn't that a good reason to keep her! Spring is soo close.  Chickens are laying eggs again, goats are actually considering leaving the barn, I may have seen a couple of them walk at least 10 steps from the barn! But it won't be spring until I can make cheese again....can't wait.
