Introducing Miss.Verna

So, the baby LaManchas were born on February 22nd, George Washington's birthday. It just so happens that Washington is one of my favorite Presidents and Mount Vernon is one of my most favorite historical places to visit, as a matter of fact, I was just there last May with my 8th graders.
The garden's at Mount Vernon are absolutely beautiful also.

So, since I am a history teacher, BA & MA in history, I decided to official name the little LaMancha doe, "Verna", in honor of Mount Vernon and my Grandmother's name was Verna too.

So, this is Harvest Thyme's Miss Verna:)

And those would be my pink coverall legs that she is checking out .

This is the teat line. The babies have decided that they are only going to use one teat to nurse off of, perhaps they wanted me to share in the milk also. Either way, I get to milk the side they are not using. Patty and I are working things out in the milking department as my technique is not as good as the babies.....I told her I never had kids so I am doing the best that I can given my college education:)
It has been a busy week and I am looking forward to the weekend!

Miss Verna is a sweet little darling of a goat. I think she and Luna would be best buds. Love the pictures, keep 'em coming!
