A big thank you to everyone who visited our new website and gave us feedback. We so appreciate all the constructive criticism and ideas for improvement! One thing that a lot of you suggested we add is pictures of the girl's udders. Everyone loves to see those beautiful, full udders.
Well unfortunately, most of our girls didn't have beautiful, full udders when we got them. We purchased three first-fresheners, in-milk this year. For those of you not familiar with milk goats, moving first-fresheners in-milk is not the best way to keep milk production up. Most of our girls dropped to about half their previous production when we moved them. Ellie is a second freshener, but we purchased her with a lopsided udder. She lost one of her twin doe kids this year and the other kid definitely preferred the right side. We have been working hard to even her out, and I have high hopes she will be back to normal after kidding this Spring.
There are definite plans for some clipping and a photo shoot in 2016, and we can't wait to share our girl's beautiful, full udders with you!
