new hive on the way
In other news, my love of dairy goats has gotten me an invite to visit a vermont goat dairy operation north of me called willow moon farm. I won't be getting any kids anytime soon, but I can see how they are housed, ask questions, learn more about the Nigerian Dwarf and pet a few yellow-eyed horned heads. Besides informal goat training, there will be formal sheep training soon. Sheep 101 is March 29th, and will be a full day at a local farm in Danby. Sheep are becoming more and more of an interest and dream every year. A few days ago a Southdown Sheep farm near me asked if I wanted a pair of lambs of purebred babydoll sheep (miniature sheep). I had to turn them down, but man... I flinched. Anyway, I'll have plenty of pictures and posts ahead from both.
