    We cleared some more land way back by the chicken coop, and we are setting up a nice area for our 2 wethers and our new buck! He will be picked up in mid-October at Fias Co. Farm--he's a handsome young American Lamancha already in rut (not too smelly yet, I hope!) and we are looking forward to breeding our does to him this fall.

    I wanted a buck for this purpose but kept thinking it was just an additional expense. And then we priced out how much it will cost us to drive and have the does serviced, and we decided we'd rather just do it under our own control. It's hard to find Lamanchas around here...if you're in the market for some, give me a call in the Spring!

    I am really excited--hope our three girls are too!
