Saturday was fun! We sold out completely all of our soap stock. Next year I better have more. The goat kids were much admired and the human kids had a great time as well. The reptile man was a hit. I got to hold the alligator but the little kids hogged the caymans and baby turtle.
Our next event will be the Central Washington state fair. Oh boy!
The girls are staying fairly consistent so far with milk weights. I'm going to post them every so often to keep them fresh in my mind and I'll let you know that these little beauties deserve their milk stars so I'm working on that next.
these weights are with kids on daily but locked up for roughly 11 to 12 hours at night. I would get highrer butterfat milk in the evenings I 'm sure but I'm letting the kids have the good stuff while they grow. I'll get mine later. *U*

There's a beautiful blog post here. I want to jump up and say "me too!" because the woman the post is about could be me. I love my life and my goats are a huge part of that.
I finally got a verifiable scale to weigh our milk and I'm like a kid with a new toy!
Here's what the girls did this morning:
Luci 6.20 33 days fresh 1 buckling on her
Lola 5.45 36 days fresh with triplets but only 2 bucks on
Phoebe 5.05 35 days fresh with twin bucklings on
Miss Kay 5.30 34 days fresh with twins on (1buck 1doe)
Stella 4.45 34 days fresh with a single doeling
