Who Are You Kidding?
aby Nubian goats have got to be one of God’s cutest creations. With their floppy ears, tiny bleats and adorable spontaneous jumps in all directions, they are a joy to watch and to cuddle. These two goats were among five born during springtime in Idaho. My daughter, Isabelle, delights in breeding, raising and selling her goats for others to enjoy, but it can be difficult to finally part with them.
My husband and I did not originally intend to create a homestead, but over the span of 15 years we’ve built
Bup our little farm to one that is now full of animals. Chickens, horses, goats, turkeys, dogs, cats and even a rabbit have all made their home with us. In so many ways, our small farm has been a really wonderful environment for our three children. Doing regular farm chores has enabled our children to take initiative in ways that can’t be found elsewhere. They have all been actively involved in harvesting and preserving what we grow.
We feel tremendously blessed to be raising a family in our special piece of the southern Idaho countryside.
