Barnyard Help

My mom, Rose, is visiting me for a week or so (she’s 90). Better put her to work: barnyard therapy! Don’t judge me… my two remaining kids (‘pet’ wethers) will be moving to their new home soon. In the meantime, I can still spoil them with a bottle!

I couldn’t get my mom to milk “our girls”. She said her mother (my Oma in Austria) always milked their goat, “Lisel” (for the sole purpose of feeding their pig).

Have a great weekend!
