Life on Amazing Sunset Farm has been busy this kidding season, to say the least! We had 24 kids, all went to the new homes except the couple I retained. This doubled from last year so we have been busy adjusting and making improvements in the nursery and organizing ourselves to prepare fore even more kidding's for 2022.
We were very pleased with our 2021 kidding season, the quality of the babies and their great temperaments were beyond our hopes and goals. We had 6 sets of triplets this year with 2 being from first time Mamas!! Misty Blue out did herself as did Harley with some awesome kids.
We have added 2 Mini Nubian does to the breeding line-up for a total of 6 to kid this next season. We also added 2 Pygmy does for a total of 6 to kid. We added 2 Nigerian Dwarf does to the line-up for a total of 5 does to kid. Lastly, we added 2 San Clemente Island does to the lineup for 4 does to kid this next season.
We have been building our 2022 wait list and want to make sure everyone is on the list that should be. If you haven't asked to be added yet, please contact me to add you with your phone number, name and location, what breed or breeding, and sec, characteristics, etc.
We will be breeding the Pygmies and SCIs first and waiting a few weeks gap and then breeding the Nigerian Dwarfs and Mini Nubians. We will also be looking for people interested in goats milk on a regular basis. Those interested in fresh or frozen, please contact me to be put on the milk list. I also have frozen milk available now.
We are renovating the nursery to have permanent kidding stalls, along with a wash station and milking station.
New to the farm is our studio we are finishing where we will make goats milk soap and lotion.
I have embarked with a partner on a new business for breeders websites made easy. And we are also building a database of everything goats, more to come.....I am combining my knowledge of technology and my love of goats. We are excited to see how this takes off.
I will start to send out more informational posts on my website and FB group so please stay tuned to these.
I hope you all enjoying your summer with the COVID ease. Enjoy the outdoors and your goats😁
The 2022 breeding schedule is done and I will be posting it on the website shortly. I also have one nice buck for sale and will have him posted too.
Stay tuned for more updates.......Debbie
It is a new year, and all adult does are bred. all 13!! We are counting down to kidding season which starts on the farm the first week of March through the end of May, with the first 10 due in March. A couple of girls took their time teasing the boys so we finish out !! We have a waiting list for the Mini Nubians, Pygmies and Nigerian Dwarfs.
If you are interested in being added to the waiting list, please send me an email with breed and sex, and any other details.
We are also putting in new barns and the chickens have their palace, and the girls have their barns. We are still working on the boys barns and the mini horse barn. We are always making improvements, and next year have nursery barns and a milking and feed barn planned.
We are beginning our goat milk soap and lotions line and will be adding it to our site for purchase in the next couple months. I am really excited to make these available. Goats milk is incredibly gentle and moisturizing for your skin! Everyone can benefit from using unprocessed handmade goat milk soap. Goat milk is wonderful for people with dry or sensitive skin, or conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. Goats milk contains high levels of Alpha-Hydroxy Acids, Vitamins, Minerals, and lots of Cream for moisturizing! Why do these thing matter in your skin products?
- The lactic acid (alpha-hydroxy acid) helps remove dead skin cells from your skin’s surface. This leaves new cells on the surface of your skin that are smoother and younger looking.
- Goat milk is particularly high in Vitamin A, which is necessary to repair damaged skin tissue, and maintain healthy skin. Studies have proven that soaps and creams made with Vitamin A reduce lines and wrinkles, control acne, and provide some psoriasis relief.
- It contains important minerals for the skin such as selenium.
- Selenium is believed to have an important role in preventing skin cancer. Selenium can also help prevent damage to the skin from excessive time in the sun.
