Good morning everybody. I was an early riser as usual and ventured outside in the cool morning air to greet the day. Linda still asleep and from what I could see so was everyone else at the B & B.
I figured it wouldn't be long though because the B & B alarm was going off, namely the large red rooster sounding off. The goats were also making their familiar bleeting sounds as they made their way to my direction in single file. These are the adults and even the older goats seem to appreciate the attention of a gentle rub and soft conversation.
While petting the goats a large cat showed up that was mostly white with rings around his white tail. He commanded some attention as well. As all this was happening I heard a clapping sound and the mexican worker was getting the goats rounded up for the 6 AM milking. I decided to check out the milking process and discovered it was also medicine time. As they were in their stalls being milked a lady was using a large syringe to squirt a de-wormer into their mouths and you should have seen them fight back and then after getting the taste of the medicine shook their heads in disgust. Seems they have to do it from time to time and after giving it to them they will throw away their milk for a week until the medicine clears their system. She was taking careful note as their number to keep track of who had the dose. They only do a small group at a time so as to not shut down their whole milk operation at once.
Time to go wake up Linda and get ready for a gormet breakfast. Have a great day everyone.
