New arrivals and a house guest...

Before I begin to explain the title of this post I  want to touch on another subject. It is hard to be jovial when so much of our wonderful country is facing such turmoil .It has saddened me to the core to see the death and destruction brought by so many horrible storms. My thoughts and prayers are with all dealing with this unbelievable hurt. May the Lord bring you strength and comfort in the days and months ahead. 

Now on to the house guest ,no it is not in-laws , not even my sis ... but has to do  with the new arrival . As many of my friends already know I raise pygmy goats. Most of my babies were born several months back and mind you I was doing the happy dance that I had no bottle babies this winter. However being grateful does not alter the fact that things change quickly on a farm . I had a new baby that mom would not even look at after the birth was over so that became my bottle baby. Blossom is now three weeks of age and so that leaves me another five weeks of being mom to her.


Now for the new arrival and my  other house guest.When I went to feed yesterday afternoon I had a nice surprise. I had two new babies and both were females. I was happy till I realized that mom only wanted one of the two so now you know how I ended up with  two guests .
This is the momma and sis to my house guest.Below is a pic of the new baby any suggestions for a name?
They are staying in craft room till all the rain and cooler night temps are over ,besides it is easier to do the nightly feeding if they are in the house at night. LOL! 


Just wanted to share a little of my week with you all .Many blessings,Jen

Oh how sweet! I am terrible at coming up with pet names but when I read you named the first one "Blossom" and then saw your new baby I thought "Buttercup". (My youngest used to watch the cartoon Powerpuff Girls and those are two of the trio lol.)

Hi neighbor,
I know what it is like to bottle feed. A ton of work and worry.
Good luck with it.

I enjoyed your visit to my blog. Congrats on starting your own blog. Your new babes are so cute. I have always wanted to bottle feed a little creature. I can guess it would be much work with even just one. Lots of love you must put into the care of them. Bless your heart. Blessings!

Hello Jen!!
Whew!!! I finally found you here in Blogland! Welcome and congratulations on your new blog! You're off to a wonderful start it looks! I'm kinda new here too - but if you think I can help with any questions, etc., just let me know.
Your goats are too dang cute!! Argghhh....how I would love one (or two or three!) I'm sure you've already named the littlest house guest...but if not, she looks like a "Millicent" (Millie for short of course!) to me! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
