The blackberries are blooming and the red and black raspberries are growing. The blueberries were full of blooms but got nipped by the frost. We would apppreciate any donation of old bedsheets so we can make row covers for our blueberry bushes. The raspberries will only have a fall crop this year since we replanted them last fall.
Maggie and Lucky have not been around for roughly 6 weeks now. I hope and pray they are just hanging out with other deer and are safe.
We are getting ready to take 7 bucklings to the Maryland buck test. They count all fecal egg counts unlike the Oklahoma buck test so it should be a more accurate representation of the goats actual parasite load and its ability to resist parasites. They also inject the goats with barber pole worms so they will have a parasite load during the test. We are hoping to have our boys do as well in this test as doc holiday, thor and tnt did at the Oklahoma
We look forward to seeing everyone again this summer.
