I'm a little late blogging tonight. My hubby just made it in from being sent out on a job this week and we were taking care of a few things once he made it home. We had been talking the last few month about investing in a toy hauler camper for my business. Something I could put products and displays in and transport to the shows and have a place to stay without having to spend a fortune on hotel rooms. We had originally planned to wait until next year, but with all of the shows I have booked out of town during the last quarter of the year, we decided it was more economical to put those funds into a camper. So, meet the new camper. In typical fashion, we are going to have to name her.
I can tell you that I have some very excited little boys that are ready to go do a little camping!
Now on to meeting the girls? The three I'm introducing tonight all came from the same farm. In fact, they are mother and two daughters. These are 3 of the sweetest girls. We bought them from a wonderful family in the Baton Rouge area.
Beauty is the mom of this crew. She is such a sweetheart and has the personality of one of my first goats who passed away. She's a little older, but still in great health and has had easy births. When she's in milk, she gives about half a gallon per day! We love her Dalmatian-like coloring with her dark colored head. I'm very excited to see how she does during our next birthing season.
Cocoa is Beauty's older daughter. She's quite a character and is very loving. I love her brown coloring. She is another one who loves to come up and rub her head all over you. It's like our own personal goat masseuse! When we first got the trio, she was not timid at all coming into a new family. She was an alpha in her herd and the other goats figured that out and some of our herd alphas tried to challenger her by headbutting her. She showed the others that she was a force to be reckoned with.
