Looking back on 2010
2010 has been a great year.
We had a succesful kidding season with several first-time moms producing lovely kids. Doelings and whethers went to several farms in Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
Our holiday contest winner from December 2009 took home 2 lovely whethers - congratulations Dianne!
7 Fainting Acres Gandalf joined our buck herd from down south.
We experimented with hay feeders and hay racks and came up with some goat-safe economical designs.
All our goats came through the year in good health, with no major illnesses & no vet bills.
The blog and eNewsletter were born and continue to grow. The website evolved & we added shopping options and more details on the breeding stock.
We watched & learned at a sanctioned show in Reading, Pennsylvania.
Our goats discovered that horses enjoy making them faint. Many thanks to my hubby's horse Foster for pulling this prank safely!
Our Facebook following grew to more than 300! Many thanks to those of you who helped make that happen!
Now it's time to finish winterizing and hunker down until March.
Watch for winter tips in the January 2011 issue.
Thank you for being part of our farm! Have a fantastic holiday and Happy New Year!

Build Your Own Solar Stock Tank Heater
These plans are for a full-size stock tank. The plans should be adaptable to smaller goat stock tanks or even water buckets. I plan to build some in 2011 and will post the results.
