Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

Goat Pimpin': The Dahli Edition

It's a sorry day when Dahli is our best goat. Today was her lucky day.

Dahli. Our best goat. Today.

Someone remind me that if Dahli stays true to her 145 - 147 day gestation then her babies will be due somewhere around April 10 - 12 next spring.

Debbie gets and F-. She is not bred and is going to cost me another $100-ish bucks for a buck if she doesn't get her act together. As far as Nibs is concerned, I'm hoping that Dahli's buck scented self will throw Nibs into a predicable heat and then she can go on a date with a flashy buck who is a proven winner.

You know I hate this.

In the mean time our turkey harvest continues. For dinner recently we had turkey marsala - it was excellent. I'm serious. Turkey is a great all around meat that you can use in just about anything. Today will be meatball day. That means I'll be making another round of Liver Love Balls. I know you want a big ol' plate of them. Oh yes you do!

Happy Tuesday everyone! I'm trying to decide if I should tell you the whole story about Dahli's performance. Some shame may be involved.

Goat sex stories abound on my blog during the fall....it's about time somebody ELSE makes a post about their caprine carnal knowledge.

We'd love to hear about Dahli's performance. Ain't no shame 'round us sinners.

I broke down and bought a young buck who is unfortunately someone small. the lady assured me he would be able to do the job. I noticed some of my girls coming BACK into heat this week which shouldn't be happening IF he did his job. Which I think he didn't. Hoping he grows faster the next month or so and is able to do his job so we can have kids next year! I kinda have all my eggs in his basket so to speak, so I don't have too many other options. I already shelled out $$ for him, and don't have any extra $$ to find a new one! :(
