This is the time of year we separate the moms and babies. It’s tough to listen to them cry. The momma goats cry so much for the babies that they almost go horse from the constant crying, and I really just want to go down to the pasture and allow them all to go back with their moms.
This photo is of Jasmine (the bottle baby), and her mom Misty. Since Misty can no longer have babies we are going to have her become the nanny goat for all the other babies. All the other babies are ready to be away from their moms, but it is tough for all the animals to leave their mom. It is tough on the momma goats too. Sabrina and I try to remain strong while listening to them cry. It’s one of those aspects of farming that doesn’t get any easier.
