Miss Molly joined the farm shortly after 6pm Sunday, March 10th. JJ had a hard delivery and is taking extra time to heal. JJ is being a great mommy! Molly is a healthy, happy, polled (no horns naturally) little girl. She is very light in color and looks like her daddy. She will be our first baby that will carry the Miller Micro Farm name on her registration papers. Her name has a sentimental meaning as it was my great-grandmother's name. Therefore, we saved Molly for our first Miller doeling.
We hope to introduce Molly and Emmy within the next few days in hopes of bonding them as friends and family within the herd. Mabel's babies are due in just shy of two weeks from now. We are anticipating the arrival of at-least two maybe three babies. Mabel has already begun to have some contractions and false labor over the last week. She is finding it hard to get up and move around, therefore she is spending a lot of her time sleeping and laying under the feeder. She can't wait for kidding season to be over, miserable would be an understatement.
Cami gave us a gorgeous doeling in February, Miss Emmylou. We are impatiently waiting on JJ and Mabel's kids to arrive this month.
We have 2 events coming up:
March 9th Joseph Badger Arts Fair
April 6th Sharpsville Middle School Spring Craft Show
Another article will be coming out in The New Pionner soon.
As well as I signed contracts with Mother Earth News for an article coming this fall.
What else is new?
Scott has been crazy at work leaving more and more of the buisness and farm on my shoulders. Noah has taken a job off farm also adding to my daily work load. Sammy has moved out to her own apartment, leaving the farm a bit emptier. I was invited to present at the Coop Dreams Boot Camp in Indinapolis, but sadly had to turn it down due to other obligations. Life is good! Everyone is happy and healthy, which is all you can ask for.
