Where is Steve?

A good friend of Steve’s visited our web site the other day and said “It’s great but why aren’t there any pictures of you?” So here they are. These are pictures of Steve (Reid) doing one of his favorite things, milking the goats. He describes the process of milking and cleaning up after milking as “calming, orderly, and predictable” …which is often in marked contrast to some of the other things we find ourselves doing on the farm. Steve switched over to using a Hoegger milking machine when we went from milking the two goats we milked this winter to the six we are milking now (and more coming). He milks one goat at a time, so he still has plenty of opportunity to give each one lots of attention and be really in tune with how they are doing.

 

The l(l)ama

The one-l lama,
He’s a priest.
The two-l llama,
He’s a beast.
And I will bet
A silk pajama
There isn’t any
Three-l lllama.
