I got the first two on film and then got busy delivering the third. Three big healthy bubs and she needed help but a good outcome in the end.

A stunning morning here at the farm, made more beautiful by the art installation created by our resident spiders. Organic farming creates abundance in every way.

I look like a bag lady but that's what a fifty year old goat farmer looks like.

Our 5th set of triplets were born this morning to Greta. The kid count should be 23 but sadly one of the little bucklings from an earlier set of triplets passed away last night. The mother only had one kid last time and was completely overwhelmed with 3 in the beginning. We worked hard with her, so that she would feed him, and things seemed to be going well but we're thinking he didn't get enough colostrum in the first 12 hours. The frustrating thing is, he was a good size and really healthy. So... 22 with one doe left to kid.

The count is now 20. Twins born at 2am this morning to Loulou on her namesake's Louisa Tyrell's birthday. Gotta love synchronicity. ❤

15/05/2022

The count is now 18 with a set of twins born this evening to Vera. Three does left to kid, hopefully not until tomorrow as the kidding pens are all full.

Twins for Jenny. The second twin was breach and a bit distressed which explains the yellow poo all over her. I cleared her airway really well and she'll be just fine.

This is what we commonly refer to as baby goatplegia- an inability to do anything due to sleeping baby goat.

Say hello to Minnie. A doeling from the set of triplets born yesterday. She's really tiny, about 1/3 the size of her brother and sister. She's not good at suckling and can't compete for a teat with her much bigger siblings. We're also concerned she'll be trodden on. We'd said we'd never do it but we've decided to move her to the laundry and bottle feed her inside.

Third lot of triplets in three days. Too tired to take photos.

We have our first set of triplets on the farm. Two doelings and a buckling to Glyni. Pictures to follow.

The best thing about living on Harmony Farm is sharing it with others. It was such a pleasure to spend the past few days with our beautiful friends and such kindred spirits.

Interesting that we had lots of these just after we built the shouse and then the house. Now we rarely see one.

Oniscidae; You may have found them under a brick or a damp object. You may have felt disgusted and wondered why they exist in nature.
Well, let me tell you, these animals oniscidae, better known as cochineal, are a subgroup of isopod crustaceans whose function is to remove harmful heavy metals to the earth such as mercury, cadmium and lead. they contribute to the cleansing of the soil and groundwater and reaffirm the wisdom of nature.
Do not damage them or spray pesticides!
