Spring!

It's spring-finally. Thermometer said 75 degrees yesterday! PTL!! Looking at my yard, I see another sign of spring-where's that lawnmower? My favorite sign of spring is the new life on the farm. While my goats aren't bred, we still have calves being born, turkey eggs in the incubator ready to hatch in about a week, chicks arriving in the mail tomorrow, baby Angora bunnies, and one old bantam hen dutifully hatching a batch in the barn.
This is Sugar. Her momma didn't make it after the birth, but Sugar is a big, healthy heifer who loves to eat. Not sure what to do with her. She may end up on Craig's list because my honey and I are both working and she needs to be fed at least three times a day. I need to get the brooders ready for the chicks and turkey poults. I have two apple trees to put in the ground. The soil is too wet to start my garden, yet. Slightly frustrating, but I don't have control over the weather. I'll post pictures of more of the babies later today or tomorrow after the chicks come in. (I like pictures.) Go with God. From Glory Farm

Hello, What happened to Sugar?
I'd love to have a cow.
Respectfully,

Pam,
Sugar went to a farm a bit south of here. Haven't heard how she's doing, but I assume she's fine. We had another bottle baby that ended up at the neighbor's place. We get to visit that one.
We raise beef cattle, so don't get too close with so many. I do have one dairy heifer that I try to spend more time with. Hoping to start milking again soon.
