Whilst the equally wonderful Francesca is having a couple of well-earned days off, our acupuncturing vet Monica has come to stay. Not only does she help out during the day, but she is also spending 2 nights sleeping in the caravan outside the barn. Which means that I get 2 nights off to sleep in my own bed at home with Marmite cat. I love Monica. So does Marmite.
And, check out the photo above .... don't be distracted by the silly hat. See how big that kid looks? Guess who? Yep .. little Hugo goat. How much has he grown?!
So, having got the busiest two weeks out of the way, hopefully next week should be a little more sedate. I think we have a total of 93 kids at the moment - latest two little chaps arrived late this morning to mum Coye who decided that she wouldn't wait until her due date of Tuesday. Coye is a great mum though - always diddling with her babies.
And, as promised, here are some of the latest arrivals:
And, more importantly - here's Flora with her little mountaineering foster daughter:
So, just back to the barn to check on the goats for the night and then I get to come back home to sleep. Utter luxury ..
