If The Video Doesn't Make You Smile...
...well you haven't been watching #2's rough couple of days.Meet Zuri (#2) and Zahra (#1).
This year the letter Z is the registration letter for goats, and since these two are Full blood Boer goats, I found African names for them. Zahra means blossom and Zuri means beautiful. Zahra has the spot on her knee and has more brown on her face. She's also a shade darker. Zuri's face has a wide white blaze and extends over all her mouth and chin.
This morning the kids were together and active and Zahra was doing a little hopping, but Zuri was just wobbling around still. The video is from this evening. The improvement is wonderful. She's really catching up and I am sure she gained weight today. She's filling out. Mom still has her favorite, but Zuri has learned to chase that teat and latch on.
The blog is really notes to my friends, old and new, to let you know what's going on in our lives. Its also a diary of sorts for myself. It started at the farm in Ligonier, PA, hence the name, but now life and work has moved us back to Connecticut,
I've always taken lots of photos and sent postcards from everywhere we travel, just to keep in touch. Email took over and then the digital camera.
Instead of me plugging up your email, you can check in when you have the time.
And yes, another town with the same problems as any other!!!
Please enjoy and let me hear from you...really~

I know a lot of people know English much better than we know any other language, but for those that want some help, me included, I'm trying this translator. Please leave a message to let us know where you are viewing from. Ciao!
