Fall might be the goats' favorite time of year. For starters, we finally let them in the sunflower patch and let them everything all up! They try to reach the flowers all summer over the fence so they are elated when Chris finally lets them in to munch to their hearts content. They also happily eat all the new second cut hay we bring home in late August, enjoy the fall leaves like they are potato chips and as usual look forward to grain with alfalfa and black oil sunflower seeds to help bulk them up before breeding since they have worked so hard taking care of kids over the spring and summer. We have switched to every other day milking as we dry them off for the buck's visit in Nov.-Dec. and all of us look forward to a couple months of hibernation.
Thanks for visiting farm friends.
