Today we add new additions to the homestead that really make our little homestead reality. My friend and I took my mothers car and traveled two hours to pick up two goats! Like any Canadian road trip it started with gassing up then getting some tims!
When we got to the city we stopped at Dollarama to pick up a tarp as well as some dog collars so we could leash the goats if anything happenned
Then stopped at J&P farm supplies to pick up some extra things like feed, insulators for electric fencing, feed etc.
With some work(Martha did NOT want to go up the hill to the car) we finally got the girls into the car. Martha is the black alpine toggenburg mix and her daughter is rose). Martha is already producing milk!
On our way back we stopped to order McDonalds(Lots of weird looks from passers by!)
Martha would have liked a salad without dressing but since they didn’t have this she settled for some apple slices!
Rose just being cute
Nibbling my friends ear
I wasn’t able to get a hay rack so this will do for now.
Pale of stock salt for the goats
And the goats finally in their stall. They are nervous but will settle down soon.
It was a long day and I am exhausted and back home just in time to start my shift. Very excited about trying to milk Martha. Also we are getting some visit from my friends from the city tomorrow so that will be great fun also. I am going to have a very busy four day weekend!
