Spring arrives, tally ho!

the men prepare trees for tapping maple sap

Spring Snapshots
- Gathering sap from the maple trees: our breakfast pancakes are saturated with fresh maple syrup
- Robins arrive: a welcome sight
- Baby chicks are growing

- Female duck commences laying eggs: the 2nd generation mating pair was hatched from last summer’s eggs
- Garden seeds are ready for planting: green thumbs are itching
- Mud season:  rainboots are a North Country necessity
- Geese return
- Open windows and fresh spring breezes


The goats love soaking up the sunlight outside.  Their springtime frolics in the sunshine and fresh air are a joy to watch.  Bucks have spring fever and recommence head butting and jostling for the ladies’ attention.  The girls, of course, pay them no mind.  They have more important things on their mind, as anticipation builds for spring kidding time!

  2. And what a winter it was! Calantha had triplets last night. Kizzy was bred the same day so it should be anytime now... :-)
