Hello soap followers. As we here at Sara's Suds took a month off after the holidays to regroup and reorganize, our goats have been working on growing our new crop of babies. It is a little early for our kidding season this year, but due to an illness on my part, I wasn't as organized with my goat breedings as usual. So this year we have added the element of surprise to our already busy life. Last Saturday, Jan 25, our Nubian doe Blue, decided to have a prolonged labor with a few complications that had us pulling the babies to save them. The babies are doing fine now and being bottle fed, and even though mom had a tough time of it she is starting to feel much better and is back on her feet and chowing down her meals. Whew!! I can't say how happy I am about that one. She is my herd pet and my absolute favorite. Blue has the disposition of a 150 lb. puppy that will follow you to the ends of the earth and has been shown by many 4-H kids that are just learning about the art of goat showing. Although I am not sure who will be next, I have a sus[icion that my fullblood French Alpine Pippa will be next to grace us with a few beautiful works of art of her own. Life is fragile and we thank God every day for the blessings he has given to us and the opportunity to take care of and love these comical, fun, wonderful animals. Stay tuned for our next update with hopefully more happy, healthy babies to tell you all about.
