Happy Days!

Yesterday was my last day of milking for 2011.  Yay!  It’s been twice a day since April, I actually feel like we could get away for a few days if we wanted to.  Goats are seasonal breeders, they need to be dried off to assure they can get pregnant again in the Fall for Spring kids and then we’ll have milk for 2012.   Mina, Bella and Hermione gave me two and a half quarts this morning.  That’s also yesterday’s batch of chevre drained and ready to be salted.  Today’s my birthday and also our 24th wedding anniversary.  And marks one year since our wonderful daughter Tracy decided I needed a blog for my birthday so it’s a blog anniversary, too.  Happy days and thank you again, Tracy!
