Meet Auralie our French Exchange Student! She lived on the farm with us for a year and went to highschool with the cowboys of Wickenburg! Here she is near her home on the Mediteranian Sea. She is attending a business college in Paris now.
OUr great herbs come from her and her lovely parents Eric and Frederique! Thank you!
Susan came by the market and offered us this recipe using our French Imported Herb Fromage. Thanks Susan!
Add 4 tablespoons of French Herb Fromage to your mashed potatoes and whip. Susan says she uses only potatoes, that are peeled and boiled, sea salt, and a little soy or almond milk to make the mashed potatoes.
Yummy and quick!
Here is the parade as the goats entered the pasture for the first time on Sunday. At first everyone stayed in a big clump and the nanny’s in the barn were yelling at the yearlings here in the picture. Then the girls, Kerri Ann and Tia started running through the pasture and having fun in the damp grass and everyone started a game of tag!
Kerri Ann, Tia, Walter junior and Walter Senior paid us a suprise visit Sunday morning and volunteered to help us set up the pasture fence! After a month of illness between Jimmie and I we were thrilled to have the help. We didn’t have the energy or strength to put up some of those big chain link panels! With everyone working together it was a job well done and well worth it to the goats!
Tia and Kerri Ann are great goat wranglers!
At first the electric fence wasn’t working. It is needed so that the goats don’t reach over the fence and eat the trees on the other side that are planted for additional shade. It is a mild shock but you know when you touch it. It got all of us by the end of the afternoon!
Jimmie and Walter survey the grass at the end of an afternoon of fencing and water rigging!
Many thanks to Walter’s family for their kindness and labor on behalf of our farm and the goats!
