Some days everything goes your way.
As I was heading back to the house my phone rang. Someone saw my ad at the local farm store and wanted to come see Telly and Chaps, my almost 10 week old wethers. They got here 30 minutes later. Not only did they want to buy Telly and Chaps but Clifford also won them over and they want him too. Of course he can't leave his mom for 5 more weeks but they left a deposit for all of them. All the goats were on their best behaviour and couldn't have acted any sweeter. I trained them well. They will be pets on a large horse farm. I'm sure their 8 year old son will love them.
To top off the day, I milked Principessa (we'll call her Pessa) and it was like no milking experience I've had yet. Really, I was almost giddy. Milking a big goat is nothing like milking a dwarf. It all went so fast and she didn't budge the whole time I was milking. I didn't even need James' help. I just tasted the milk and it was delicious.
