April was also the orneriest goat out there, so I don't think anyone is really missing her that much, except maybe her daughter Oreo, who just had a kid and doesn't have grandma to babysit like she used to. :-)
I've also had to really pull hard to get a couple of the kids out. They did come out in good order, though. The boy/girl ratio is even, too. So there are good things in with the not so good.
On the dairy side, I'm dealing with a bad case of mastitis, which I've never had before, either. What a year! At least I'm learning a lot, and so are H&C. They are getting to experience just about everything, both good and bad, to do with raising goats. I do have a really good looking kid crop, though. Some of the best I've had come yet. I think I have a replacement cashmere buck in there, too. He's a cream colored one, so that will be a nice contrast to the two black bucks I have now. He's a very solid nice looking kid! We'll see what he looks like as he gets older.
I'll be getting some good pictures of all the kids on the computer one of these days. They are on the camera, I just haven't taken the time to get them on here, yet. One of these days.....
