Barn Hop #49

Welcome! Our weekly Homestead Barn Hop is here for you to link up your post on homesteading and visit other homesteaders via the internet! Hostesses, Jill, Kendra, Kelly, and I are so blessed to have each of you help cultivate the homesteading community by participating each week.

Things have been busy around here and our lives have just taken a new turn. Meet the newest edition to our little herd... Dance Hall (I did not name her that - she came with the name!). A sweet Nigerian Dwarf doe who is already giving us milk! I just got her Saturday, so this quick picture is all I have for now, but hopefully I'll have more soon. I think she'll be a nice addition to our homestead and a good fit for us so we can learn how to milk regularly. She stands perfectly while being milked, even without a stanchion. Such a little lady!

The three Kinders have been tested for CAE and CL, two diseases that you want to know our goats do NOT have, and they have a clean bill of health. Next on the agenda is to breed Fiona, our Kinder doe; hopefully next weekend.

What's happening at your homestead this week?

Join The Barn Hop!

  1. Well, I don't know what happened, but when I tried to go to Kendra's site - New Life on a Homestead, a screen comes up saying it is an attack site! This has never happened before! Kinda scary! Is it just on my end, or is anyone else having this trouble?

  9. Oh, Dance Hall is such a cutie :) :) It made me smile to hear that she has ladylike manners while she's being milked :) :) :) It's totally quiet at my house, but I'll be thankful for that :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)
