We have had such a busy summer & autumn. So many new babies to welcome & love. First was our beautiful baby girl arriving just in time for the New Year - Edie Jamieson Kijlstra.
So proud of our goats today. Ribbons all round! And Show Champion goatling (Freya), Show Champion Buck (Charlie). Thanks to the organisers of the Alexandra Show & lucky we weren't judged on goat behaviour...
It has been a week of mixed-blessings as a goat lover! The downs - sleepless nights, 2 vet visits, 2 little kids born dead to Chani & almost loosing her. The ups - 2 beautiful little kids Charlie & Marlee born to Molly but under the shared care of Molly & Chani.
Well the moment we have all been waiting for..... Chani gave birth to 3 kids today. They are so cute - all legs and ears. So far so good they are all healthy but cross your fingers for the next week or so. They are such wobbly, vulnerable little things.
We have only had Chani and Molly for a short time but already they have brought so much joy to our lives. These girls are Anglo Nubian dairy goats - Chani is Molly's mum and pregnant again (we can't wait for spring). Molly is the cheeky teenager ready to play and jump around.
Its Autumn here at Alexandra Farmstay and the trees are putting on a beautiful show. Also we have 16 new family members to fatten up - Black Angus and Charolais.
