Spring Peeper FarmI'm not so sure how much more I can handle.

This year has been the year from hell for farming.

It's years like this that make you want to give up.

And it's only March! I hope that it gets better instead of worse.

First it started with Woody. The vet had to come twice, which is never a good thing. Money, money, money...

Even after a few weeks Woody was still sick and not getting any better. I finally thought ... kill or cure. I cut Woody off from his milk and his feed. Only water and hay. It worked.

Do you watch the television series " Dr . Pol " ? He always has stories of goats on . By the way how did the vanilla extract turn out ?

You poor thing :( Always sad to lose a baby, especially when you do everything you can. Bless you for trying so hard, when it came down to it I'm sure you made the right decision to let him go.
