Last week we finally traded one of Freyja’s bucklings for a doeling from the same farm, but different mother. Say hello to Heidrun!
Isn’t she beautiful? Heidrun and Freyja had a little difference of opinion on who was top dog when she first arrived. After some goatie conflict-resolution (read: head butting for three solid days) they are much better friends.
We also sold off the remaining two bucklings to be used as meat. I would have butchered them myself for meat, but frankly– I just didn’t feel like butchering an animal in the middle of the summer that I have no experience with. Funds from their sale will feed the whole farm for a couple months, and for that, I am more than happy. I bet those chubby goats tasted great.
