New Kids on the Block!


Yesterday while Lil Miss and I enjoyed a lazy morning together without the extra noise the boys add to the mix, Mike and the boys went on a road trip to Auckland.

After waiting for a couple of months for the right time we finally found our long awaited and perfect additions to our little farm.

Meet our new Kids! 

This is Stella and she's pretty cool and calm just like her Carer Mr B and suits her name to a T!

 And here is Sally, the Smallest of our goats with the most striking features and colouring.....she absolutely loves a snuggle which is just fine by her Carer Big J who doesn't want to leave her alone!

The boys all made them finger knitted collars to tell them apart!
And Rosey just like her Carer Little J.  Shes curious and likes to get up to mischief whenever she can!


Here they are the two of them together!


And lastly Lil Misses goat which she so proudly announced was to be named 'Flower', just as mischievous as Rosey and loves to nibble on my jeans....Uh Oh!


I can see them being quite a lot of fun and no doubt a few headaches but even so a welcomed addition and a needed addition not only for their raw milk one day, but also for the calming effect they will have on our children


.....there is definitely something in what they say about the connection between animals and children and it couldn't be any truer with ours. 

 In 24 hours we have already seen and delighted in how it has changed the atmosphere in our house.....since the pigs, our dog and the lambs there was a void that needed to be filled and this seems to have hit the spot already!


Now to keep them healthy with home brewed Kombucha in their drinking water and their bottled Milk 50/50 with homemade yoghurt.......we absolutely cannot have another animal die on us again!!

Just in case anyone wants to know, they are Saanen Nubian crosses....good milking breeds.....Homemade feta one day!! Currently we're dairy and gluten free, so a little while yet!

Oh my they are too too cute and the goats and lambs are not to bad either! Hahaha. I used to have a goat as a pet when I was a child, primarily to keep down the blackberries on our paddock. The first one we inherited and was called Sally, and the second we named Capricorn....my star sign.....just in case you needed to know that. Animals do have an amazing connection our chihuahuas literally saved my daughter in her dark times. Yep, they need us and we sure need them. Looking forward to seeing how you make feta, I adore feta especially in olive oil and herbs and garlic...hmmmmmmm.

Oh my, this must be the sweetest thing I have seen in a long time. They are absolutely adorable! There is nothing quite like a pet of one's own, companionship, responsibility and lots of love. Such a special gift to be living rurally with kids... xxx

Absolutely wonderful. I'm in awe of you and your growing family, working hard to live the best kind of life. Your children are so blessed to have such creative, clever and caring parents. All the very best for many happy adventures (& not too many headaches!) with your new 'kids' ;-) x
