I'm A Grandma Again

Raquel is up to her usual shenanigans with the FFA and their livestock. She is currently pioneering the Dairy Goat Program at her school and has successfully bred, raised and cared for 2 milking goats...sisters Zanzibar and Asha.

Last Monday, Valentines Day, after Raquel and a few chosen friends camped out at the school farm all weekend, Zanizibar's kids were born. Diana, the goat angel that loaned out the goats and Raquel, assisted in the birth, which took roughly 3 hours.

Raquel and Zanzibar before Valentines Day

Baby boy #1

and baby boy #2...hiding behind momma

and the both of them together with their mommy. They look like little calves because of their coloring. Raquel was so happy and proud and this whole week was spent having lunch with her boys...sitting in the pen and just hangin' out.

So Congrats to Raquel and Congrats to me, although I would still welcome a grand daughter at some point...I'm Just Sayin'

...btw, this guy (smalls) is still around weighing in at about 1,000 lbs and is coming along nicely thank you~

    LuLu & I are roommates in Manhattan Beach so, if you guys hook up I bet I'll be in on the fun too. Can't wait. I'm not sure there will be time for all we want to do... Just never enough time when you're on vacation! HUGS!

  11. Hey Bun Bun! Hope all is well in your neck of the woods! How funny that even the goats are having boys. Maybe one day Raquel will bring that little bit of sugar and spice you are hoping for. :) How interesting to hear about Keith Richards. It is so true that you can't judge my what you see or hear. I'd like to hear how your next book is coming along. We will be leaving tomorrow nite for our second trip to Sri Lanka. Woo hoo! My birthday is Saturday. We will be in a bungalow on a tea plantation. Can't wait! Best wishes always, Tammy

  12. BUN! I was all ready to ask you if it was a girl!!!! LOCA!


  13. Oh I grew up on a farm..around animals all the time..and there is something so wonderful about being that close to them, isn't there!?!

    congratulations..they are adorable...!!!
    thanks so much for taking the time to visit with me, you're right..we are all busy these days...but it's nice to step away from responsibilities, like the laundry I'm supposed to be doing, and visit with our blog mates!
