Breeding time is here!

We had a few cows that didn't move to the new pasture with the rest of the herd.  They had new calves and didn't seem to care about staying with the group.  Saturday, Mr. Broome and his pastor brought their border collies and together managed to move those cows across the road with the rest of the herd.  Now of course, it wasn't as easy as it sounded.  It took a few tries......I'm not sure if you can tell by the pictures butit was very foggy that morning.

We worked all of our does Saturday and separated them into their "breeding groups".  We have Gold Digger in with the purebred and commercial does; Rooster is in with the 100% New Zealand does.  Kimba decided to jump in the driver's seat of the mule while we were sorting the goats in the catch pen (a good picture opportunity.)

I'm hoping to be posting some new information about some other goat breeding that might be going on here at our farm........Until then............................
