Scandal's twin doelings
Last Tuesday, I was doing a Homesteading 101 lecture at a community college, and I knew Scandal was going to kid. I explained to her that she needed to hurry up, but she just sat there chewing her cud, looking completely unconcerned.
And I was right. She gave birth in the middle of my class. Jonathan was home and took care of everything. It was an uneventful birth, and Scandal delivered two of the flashiest does ever born on this farm. We just love looking at them!
Unfortunately, this little girl wouldn't turn around and show off her other side for the camera. As sad as it is, I'm thinking I need to sell both of these. I've already decided to keep four of the does that have been born, which is too many! These little girls have quite the pedigree with two master champion parents and a dam that has earned her one-day and 305-day milk stars. They'll be $550 each.
