A day at the Farm

This is still the best picture of a  mother (Esther) tending her new born kid.  All the does are pregnant, due the last week in March and the first 2 weeks in April.   At least it is a bit warmer in the Spring.  Once the kids have their colostrum we will be back in the milk business.  This young lady is now 2 years old and a good addition to the milking herd.
