The State Fair, The Yoder Days Festival, The Mulvane Settler Days, and The Clearwater Festival. Which is kind of funny, because I never really thought we were festival/carnival people, but maybe we were just ready to get out and do some things other than staying at home and taking care of the animals (no offense sheep, chickens, guineas, and ducks.).
Anyway, the animals are what I'm supposed to be talking about, right? Yes. Okay, I'm gonna tell you about our brand new animals. My sister and I were at our friend's house, and she had found a sign that said, "Goats for sale". I bugged her into going to see them, because I'm almost always up for seeing animals, so we drove over there and saw these cute little baby goats. They were really cheap, and so we hurried back home to call my mom, and once I told her that there was a really cute nubian goat that looked like a deer, and was only fifty dollars, she agreed to come and see them. Ha Ha Ha. What happened the next day? Well, we had a baby goat in our barn. Now, when my mom went to see the goats, we found out the little deer goat was only three quarters Nubian and one quarter Lamancha, and my mom wanted a pure Nubian. Turned out she was okay with it, since they are both milking breeds. So we loaded our new baby goat in the car, and she rode all the way home on my lap. The next day turned out to be an even bigger surprise though, because my mom said that our goat needed company and that we would go back and get the other doe for Caroline, and the Nubian could be mine. Caroline's goat was 3 quarters Lamancha, and 1 quarter Nubian, so she has teeny weeny little ears.
So after we bought her, we went to Atwoods to buy some goat food, and of course, thay had adorable baby guineas. My sister, Lily, and I had gone into the store first, and I walked by those birds thinking, "Oh look, Mom was wanting some more guineas, but she probably won't get them from here.". About 15 minutes later, to my surprise, Caroline was carrying a box of about 10 keets. So, as you see, we are quite busy this month. We named our goats Alice and Betty, and they are super cute and sweet. I never expect our guineas to be sweet though....
