I LIKE PINK BUTTS AND I CAN NOT LIE

I hope everyone had a GREAT Thanksgiving. Here at the Funny Farm I had a peacefull yet chilly day. It was the first Thanksgiving without my sons but I had a mouth watering meal and most of the day I spent in the barn watching PINK BUTTS.... That is right - I said it! With the big change in weather I was concerned that it might threw my expecting Angora and Cashmere goats into early labor. It was tons of fun. All week I assembled the items that are required during an assisted birth along with my reading table, lamp, tea kettle and book in hand I sit in the birthing barn watching and listening. As you could guess no one likes to have people watch their butts especially when expecting so it takes a special skill to get a peak without getting them scared. Years of doing this has provided me with skill sets that you do not get in your college classroom or out of a book. Who would believe that this is one of my JOYS in life but it is - I just love being able to help if they need it. No babies right now but I will keep you posted. I can tell you this sure beats football or standing in line with the consumer crazies but that is just me. Give THANKS for all those things in life that make you happy, mine is pink butts!

I love it!!!
I have sure spent some time watching pink butts too! I don't have anyone due for awhile here...the sheep will be late spring/early summer and Mona will be Sept this next year...way later than i hoped. She was sneaky with the heats and I don't have any male animals around at all (I call them fence busters!!) I didn't breed my little spoiled angora girl..since she is such a bad mom. I hope someday to get a great little angora doe that is breedable, but for now she is Mona's best friend and that is important too.
Have a wonderful Christmas!!!
