A first time for every thing

They were all laying on the same couch together!  It's a miracle!
From left to right: Rain E Day, Lila Mae, and Alexis Louise (Rain, Lila, and Lexie)
I think Rain and Lila will actually end up good friends. Lexies a lot more hyper, and makes Lila nervous. 
But there's hope, lila hasn't even been down stairs since we got the puppies,  but this past week she's been down on the couch nearly every day.

Breeding Season

The breeding season is near to closing.  Most all of my girls are bred, (fingers crossed) a couple of them are sneaky and don't let us know when they are in heat...
I'll have goats kidding in the spring in March and April,  As will Larissa at Tiny Hill Farm. We are each breeding a good number more does than last year; it will be crazy :)
Only Varla ended up being bred to Joshua James (pictured in previous post), my six other girls are bred to Sting N Ned L- An adorable young chocolate buck. I will try and get a picture.

Half Cape

I've had a table cloth mom gave me that I had planned to make a cape with, and I also just bought some pretty curtain like material  at Savers. I found this amazing pattern on line here. I made two capes out of two very different fabrics, an over cape and an under cape. But they can be worn by them selves because they aren't attached. The top one is more elegant,  with a fancier clasp.  The under cape is much more rustic and woodsman looking.
