Autumn is my favorite time of year, and it's just about as busy as spring and summer on the ranch. We've had out first two snowstorms and there's a crest of white on the mountaintops, reminding me that I'd better hurry up and get the outside chores done before the snowline moves south.
In two weeks I'll be shipping four kids to the sale. For those of you unfamiliar with this blog, I'm talking about my South African Boer Goat kids. Then I'll be able to get their pen cleaned out and readied for winter. The breeder does have already had their pen cleaned out, thanks to husband and the tractor. They're on grain and hay now, having completed their organic weed management jobs in various spots around the ranch.
Also in two weeks, Baxter Buck comes for an extended date with the girls. This is the first year I haven't had my own buck, since Billy has gone on to Goat Heaven, but my fellow goat herder a few miles north is willing to share the wealth.
That's about it for today. Going to do some writing and get ready to meet my 50% deadline for the next Idiot's Guide.
