I think it’s official…We have a farm!

Now, along with all our rabbits, two bulls and twenty or so chickens we have two goats! We had made a deal with a man who wanted grasses from our land to feed goats he uses to train children in caring for and then giving them a goat. He would give us a goat in a month. I think it’s been more like 4-5 months but we got a baby male…his name is Papaya. So cute! And a few weeks later someone we had already been allowing her two goats to graze here really needed money so she sold us her female. Raelee is so excited that they will be married and have babies one day!

The rains are here so we have plowed much of the back of the land to plant alfalfa, dodo and some other crops to feed all of these animals. If we can just get our bull keepers to tie them away from everything we will be alright. I had a stearn talk with them the other day because they let the bulls eat about 8 of our banana trees down to the ground. Our favorite bananas, the tiny ones that are sweet. We are working at fencing off a place for all the graizers or we won’t have any crops!
