Waiting

All of us here in Maine are waiting. For spring, mostly. In this house we are waiting for lambs and kids :* ) which definitely mean spring!

Our vigil begins in earnest this week as we watch our LaMancha goat Elf for any signs of impending labor. Her sides are bulging, but she doesn’t usually look huge like our doe Salsa the Tank does. Three or four times a day we are now checking on her to see what’s happening with her udder and her behavior. Not bagging up yet, so we may have a few days to go!

Elf leads doelings Snow Pea and Rhubarb to the goodies!

We are working on getting her pen ready for the big event. Just wish it wasn’t supposed to be so cold this week.
