We received a deposit on Mitzvah today! He will be a herd buck up north in the Bay area. What a lucky little guy. He just got his tattoos and hoof trimming and will be ready for his new home next week. That means we are SOLD OUT of 2014 goat kids. :) #nigeriandwarf

The bamboo forest is in! We still have to mulch and put up a wire to keep the sheep out but the heavy lifting is done. This year the root system will establish and by next spring it will hopefully be thick and tall enough to completely shade the tent. The are 5 species of bamboo here from the big timber size to the smaller crooked stem, glowing yellow and beautiful black bamboo.

We spent yesterday afternoon at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo at a scion exchange and grafting seminar so today tested our skills by we grafting about 16 new stone fruit varieties onto our existing trees. Now almost every tree in our orchard has a pollinator or other variety grafted onto it. #fruitsalad #backyardorchard #sheblindedmewithscions

Millie had gotten so big, we were sure she was carrying more than one lamb. We did not however, know her due date. We have been concentrating so much on Cover Girl that we did expect Millie to lamb first. But she did..quietly and gracefully early this morning. Meet our newest additions..a boy (white) and a girl. Happy Friday!
