the Rowe homestead

One of my very best friends lives only 10 minutes away. She and I have a lot in common and one of those things is our love for homesteading. Her children are older than mine (except for Wyatt) and are active in 4-H. They have pigs, chickens, and goats on their property. Their horses move back and forth from a pasture to their property, depending on the season.

Their milk goat had twin baby girls last week and so the kids and I went over to visit the new additions.

They were so sweet- I just wanted to take one home. The thought crossed my mind (again) to get a milk goat. I didn't even bring it up to hubby though because I know what he would say. And he's right- we need to wait. We've got our eye on a ranch in Santa Rosa that breeds miniature Jerseys.
But I sure wouldn't mind cuddling one of those little cute kids again!

How fun! We have some friends who have a goat dairy farm and they just got through kidding season. I saw her today and she invited the family out to see all the should've seen my poor hubby's face! I'm sure that he won't be suggesting we take the truck! ;)

We've been looking into miniature Jerseys too! Perfect size family milk cow!
