A few weekends ago one of our higher percentage Boer does had twins. It was a beautiful, warm and sunny day so she was able to be in the front yard. She birthed them right in the yard while we all watched and assisted just a little bit. Here are a few pics of that event. This is Vibe looking really big right before she had the twins.

We have had quite a few lambs born over the past 6 weeks. Here are some pics of them:
Although we usually feed square bales of Alfalfa/Orchard grass hay, we did resort to a big round during the last few snowstorms. It made it way easier to keep all the sheep and goats in good health.

Here are a few pics of the Bourbon Red turkeys that we have now. There is one tom and 3 hens. I got these from Dan - (Thanks Dan!!). They came complete with a little turkey tractor. It has been working our real well.
I am hoping to incubate the eggs and raise up some tasty meat turkeys. As a matter of fact, I found the first egg of this year just a few days ago!
