Amanda & Scott | Goat Farm  Natural Goat's Milk Soap 🚿 Raw Milk Cheese πŸͺ Springtime Baby Goat Yoga 🐐 Chicken and Duck Eggs 🐣 Naturally Fermented Breads 🍞

SOUND ON!! On today's episode of #MeetMyGoatMonday, a lesson on love! I couldn't help myself... .
It is breeding season around here which means the smells, sounds, and sights are at their peak of interest. The blubbering is one of our favorite sounds. Inside the pen is our 4 young bucks. We like to think of them as teenage boys uncontrollably "in love" with every girl they see. In addition to making us all laugh a little, they help to attract the ladies. .
Nova is really enjoying all of the attention. You may notice that we have clipped her collar to the fence. We sometimes do this in breeding if the girl is more interested in the boy that is not her chosen mate. She obviously isn't trying to go anywhere and is really loving this. She can look at the boy she really wants while the buck we have chosen can get the job done. .
We never force a breeding on our girls. If they are in proper heat, they really want it. Twice this week, two of our girls woke us up at 5am by calling out. We rushed out to the goat yard to make sure everything was ok. They were standing right at their gate and when allowed to go out of their yard, they went and stood next to the boys' yard, wiggling their tails and looking back and forth between the boys and us as if to say, "Can I pretty please?" It is the natural cycle of the goat and that makes me feel great about what we do.

This video was taken last week. 3 weeks from now, we will be able to run a blood test to confirm her pregnancy. If successful, she will be due January 29th. Yay for babies and more of our Baby Goats & Yoga!!

Introducing our newest addition (and reminiscent of a Backstreet Boy with that hair-do), Lavenderwood Little Boy Blue! He will be pairing up with two of our ladies to make some amazing future milkers and herd sires. Just look at those beautiful blue eyes! .

Organic = life. Stay healthy and always support organic farms. This lovely lady has found her happy place among our sunflowers. It tickles my heart to see this.

Breeding begins next week and we can't wait! Can you? .

Luna is taking it way back to when we first fell in love with her. Hard to believe she is almost 4 years old and had FIVE babies at her new forever home this year. She will always be my first goat love!

Happy #MeetMyGoatMonday! This is Juniper. She insists on standing in the feeder while she eats. Because when your a goat, is there any other way? She is only one year old but she is giving us the most milk out of all 8 of our milkers. She is amazing!

Have you played the game yet? Follow @chelleninmt and @the_young_homestead and post a photo of your goat on Monday with a change to be featured in the winner's block on Tuesday.

All set up at Warners Brothers Studios to be part of a set on a tv show! Very exciting. If you look closely, you may be able to identify the establishment behind that has a new name. see if you recognize it!

Happy #MeetMyGoatMonday everyone! It's about time I take a minute to share and play too. Front and center is our *favorite but don't tell the others* Nova when she was a kid. She has such a unique personality. Full of sass but she is an oversized lap goat when she wants to be, literally. Although she isn't an amazing milker, she will always he a part of our faRmily. Such a happy girl!
