In between playing with and feeding goats I have been doing a little leather crafting, making quick and simple covers for my garden journal and a second on as a gift.

Baby goat count is now 4, three girls and one boy all full of cuteness and quirky behaviour. Sadly Ninny the mother of the first twins born hasn't made it. We are not sure why she got sick it was very sudden and after talking to my local vet, she said it could of been a few different things from milk fever to snake bite. So far the babies are going fine Ninny's twins ( Sugar and Spice) have adopted Petal as there mother even if she isn't keen on the idea. I am bottle feeding them and they also sneak feeds of Petal in between feeds.

Lately the weather has been wild, with Monday afternoon been the highest we have ever seen the creek. As you can see in the photos below the dry creek bed which is always dry was flooding. By Thursday the creek was back down and the dry creek was dry again. The Goat paddock is down in 4 places. Luckily over Christmas the veggie patch fence finally went up, so the goats are in there till there paddock is fixed. Clover (the kid/baby goat) has grown she is huge, so she is been weened from Moonie. So far its going well. I am still milking, Ebony had a still born in November an she is my main milker now. She is a bugger to catch but is great to milk. I am milking her twice a day and get roughly 1.2-1.5 litres each milking.
