1 Norse goddess and 1 Greek God arrive!

Morning gang! Pull out a chair and let me pour you a cuppa while I fill you in on what`s new around the hillside farm!

The weekend was a busy one, as they usually are. My father has returned home to Pennsylvania and is now staying with us for awhile. I suppose Texas was just too different for a boy born and raised in the laurel highlands. He seems very pleased to be back in the mountains and although our little house is now pretty dern full we`re glad to have him here! Tinker about turned himself inside out when Pop walked in the door!

I did finally get a picture of Hades and Persephone all dried off. I think this little doeling will be my keeper from this year`s batch of Nubian`s! Most of my Nubian kids are light brown and/or red *Eyes Anakin who yawns back* while this little darling is a nice rich dark brown!(Persephone is on the left in this image)

Also we had two single kids arrive over the weekend. Miss Yodeling was tickled many shades of pink to have her LaMancha doe give her a doeling whom she named Freya. Freya is indeed a Norse name but I guess she figured since her goat was SO different she needed a non-Greek name! Friday night sure was hectic since Freya and this beautiful buck who I named Adonis, both arrived around 11:30 at night. I must admit if I were in the market for a Nubian buck, I would take this little man in a flash! I just love his markings and his ear-set is superb!

Also, I think I`m losing in the goat-pool.*Sighs* This is why I never go to Atlantic City! I`d lose the farm and all the critters that go with it if I ever laid money down on any kind of wager...although losing the turkeys may not be all bad.

Hmmmmmm, wonder if they take poultry at Trump`s Casino??

I agree! That is one good looking little buck. He sure has some unique markings. The little LaMancha girl is adorable too. I love her belly band and face stripes!

Awww! They're all cute as buttons! Persephone is beautiful. Good luck with the last ones left to hatch!

Also, good luck with your new roomie! If he gets too uppity, I guess you could threaten to put him up in the barn.

That little LaMancha doeling is beautiful! I love the antelope silhouette on her face. Are you keeping her?

Congrads on more babies!

Oh yeah Sandy, we`re keeping that LaMancha doeling for sure! My daughter has been hoping for a girl from her doe for ages!
