Not quite as we had planned.

The family has been patiently waiting since last fall for the delivery of 3 safe nigerian dwarf goats.  We were ecstatic with the news of triplets and were beginning to countdown 8 weeks till they would be home on the farm.  We were unfortunately shocked to receive a phone call informing us that the breeder was going to be retaining one of the does.  She explained that she needed to think ahead around breed lines and apologized.

She explained my options:

  • only take home the 2 (doe and wether)
  • take home the 2 and get another one later
  • she did have some leads on another breeder who had a goat of similar age that she could add to our 2.

We talked as a family and decided that we would still like to have the 3 come home.  I am still waiting to hear back from her but we are hoping the next couple of weeks go as planned.  We have tentatively scheduled pick up for Mother’s Day Weekend.

I am a school administrator by day and a new hobby farmer by night. My family consists of my husband, a farmer boy at heart, and myself, a city girl learning the ropes, along with our two children. We are excited to embark on this new adventure.
