That Time Of The Year
It is that time of the year. Maternity leave time for our goats. Holiday time for us soon.
It is not just our Toggies. All milk goats go into a natural milk-hibernation phase during the colder months. Their milk supply decreases, and the quality goes down. So, we leave them in gestation-peace, and in return we have time to visit our other kids. Grandkids.
Fast forward approximately 150 days and the first goat kids will start to arrive at the end of July/beginning of August. Not long and we are back to our usual routine. Daily milking and making cheese. Until then it is rustyd vir die oumense . A road trip with padkos and flask coffee, Children and grandchildren, Kruger park and a bit of golf.
