New life – it never fails to provide that sense of awe and utter delight
choose from. And then there were the Boer goats, another part of the overall plan, in which we were, after years of goat keeping, finally hoping to raise our own goats for meat!
Overall, our first year’s breeding went incredibly well: three healthy calves, two sets of triplets from our Boers, 14 lambs from eight ewes (and one stillborn) and two cria (although we later tragically lost a mum), with all of these being unassisted births. And at the last count we had more than 80 assorted chicks, goslings, ducklings and turkey poults. Phew!
