I was looking over some goals that I shared at the beginning of the year and realized that I've achieved some of them!
Purchase a Nubian doe.
Completed in March. We purchased a beautiful Nubian doe who is on a bottle. It's so much fun to have a bottle baby again! Mocha is my oldest daughters dairy doe to show in our fair. I'm excited to eventually be able to compare the Nubian milk to our saanens milk.
Purchase two wool sheep.
Completed yesterday! My son is now the proud of owner of two Shetland sheep. A ram lamb and a girl. He will be showing those as a breeding sheep project and then we'll start our own small flock.
To successfully breed our pig.
Unfortunately, our beloved pig passed away from unknown causes in late January. It was a devastating blow to the farm. She is still missed and I'm anxiously waiting on getting a new pig when the time is right!
Have you achieved any of your goals for your homestead?
