We taught some families from a local homeschool group about wet felting! In the class we taught the kids how to make a felted soap bar.
Here are some wonderful pictures taken by, one of the mothers, Marilee.
Here is Cousin It with her new son that was born today. Peggy Sue had twin black lambs with big white spots on their heads yesterday. They would not hold still long enough to take their picture. We will try again. Thanks to all of you that have dropped names by our booths at the markets or on facebook. All these little ones need names. Our themes are Soda Fountain type music of the 50′s-60′s and the Adams Family for the Churros. “It’s ” baby last year was “Wednesday” and “Morticia’s” baby was” Pugsly”. Keep sending us your ideas:)
Winners of the goat naming contest last week were the names “Pickles”, “E-Harmony (her mom is Dot Com), and “Tator Tot”. Remember that I have to go out into the pasture and holler for them so it can not be to embarrassing of a name!
Xander came over during Spring Break to help on the farm. Along with gathering eggs (he especially liked the ducks), assisting with milking, brushing horses, feeding sheep and goats, he helped with the bottle feeding in our new kindergarten. In addition to the nursery there is a kindergarten for the bigger doelings to bounce in. Newborns and their moms stay in the nursery for the first two weeks.
Baby goats often have problems with body temperatures the first few days to a week. Excessive cold–last week, and now heat–make it hard on the littlest ones. We also have an ICU play pen in the house with a heating pad if needed or just for cooling down.
