Homestead Goals for 2013 Update

I was looking over some goals that I shared at the beginning of the year and realized that I've achieved some of them!

#1
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.

#2
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.

#3
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?
