Christmas came early this year to Fat Toad Farm in the form of our veterinarian, Dr. Barry, performing ultrasounds on our goats to make sure that they’re pregnant. The result? Almost everyone is expecting, with a few that we will re-check because they were far enough along to show. I wish we had had our camera for this one, but the summary would be that the picture looks like a lot of spirally donuts with the occasional hint of a tiny fetal goat. Most of our does are due between March 1st and 15th, with a few stragglers through the middle of April. We can’t wait!
If you’re interested, our does aren’t having one big baby shower, but they are registered at the Poulin Grain feed vendors and and Caprine Supply. In the meantime, they’ll be relaxing in the barn, as we finished milking on Dec 15th.
