Macie, our doeling, doing her best impression of a helicopter:
A bit faster, and she might get enough lift to take off!
As the snow melted in this glorious sunny day, she and her brothers ventured out of the barn to frolic. More pictures are on our facebook page.
They’re 11 days old today and growing quickly – the largest buck is 17.4 lbs, while the smallest is 14.8.
The baby goats are now 5 days old and growing quickly, already skipping around the barn (they’re saving their pasture skipping for when the snow melts). We’ve posted more pics on our facebook page, but here are a couple of them:
This is just a quick post (you can check out our Facebook page for more photos) to announce that in the middle of this huge snowstorm, we took a break from other subjects for a biology lesson. We now have four brand new baby Boer Goats – 3 bucklings and a doeling.
We’re busy making sure they are all settled for a cold night, and will post more later!
Blessings to all,
The Flying T
The snow doesn’t slow down the kids or the horses too much. This is in the middle of our snowstorm today – probably 6-8″ at the time of the walk, and now we’re approaching one foot. Now it’s time to go sledding!
The kids made snowmen after Nemo last weekend… and decided it would be appropriate to add a snow goat.
Winter storm Nemo is just starting to arrive. The ducks don’t seem to mind.
Like Snow off a Duck’s Back
Well, one of them might mind a little bit…

All the chicks are starting to get their wing and tail feathers, and we’re getting a bit more convinced of what breeds our 3 mystery birds might be. Here are some new photos. If you think you’ve got an answer (or your answer has changed), post a comment on the contest page.
Chick A – I can’t help but think of the Looney Tunes “Chickenhawk” character when I look at her.
Chick B (in the middle of the photo surrounded by Barred Rocks)
Chick C. Color is really coming in on her.
Any new guesses?
