And Then There Were Goats

Two of our goats arrived on last Wednesday. I have only had an escapee one morning- so far!! One of these goats is my daughters 4-H project and the other one is our companion goat named Dirk. Dirk thinks he is a dog and should be allowed to follow us wherever we go and he complains loudly when he can't.
We have another goat arriving this week. She will be the beginning of our dairy herd. She's also a bottle baby so we will be raising her from the very start. I'm hoping that this will make her more like a pet!! Our final goat will arrive at the beginning of May.

Our chicks are doing great and growing bigger every day. We are planning on completing the coop this coming weekend.

How are things around your homestead?
