A Note from Patty

I, Patty, a 3 year old chocolate LaMancha doe living at Harvest Thyme Homestead since I was 4 weeks, do solemnly swear, to be pregnant.
NO, I am not bred by my Cotswold wether buddy Ira!

Have you not noticed that I am eating like a piggy? I have been trying to tell you this but obviously you have had other things on you mind like paying attention to those dwarf things you call goats. Perhaps did it not occur to you, that I might be eating for 2?3?

Now, I do not want to get all personal, but I think posting my private sector is necessary to show people that you need to pay more attention to what is going on in the barn. The udder may be small, but it is there, give it time as I am a real dairy goat. And my sides are starting to get fuller too......just another FYI. I would appreciate you giving me more grain at this point.

So, who is the Daddy you are wondering? Well, it could be Mr. Friendly, the young LaMancha buck.........remember when I was screaming at midnight a few months back ( and the neighboors came over the next day to see if everyone was okay:) because I was in a raging heat cycle and then you put me in with him to shut me up? I believe you called me a "big mouth". Well, it could be him but............

it could Lil' Texas, that horny little Nigerian Dwarf, who is all about himself and his little Nigerian Dwarf groupies. Remember you left him and the other dude with us 'till late October.........duh!

Yeah, those are 2 of the 3 that I am talking about. Check out that baby bump on Summer, the one on the left. Anyways, since you just decided to notice my little baby bump and little udder, I am going to hold out 'till the kids come to let you know who the daddy is. Could be pure bred LaManchas, could be mini-Manchas.......regardless, I am sure they will be cute like me:)

Sincerely,
Patty

I have those huge bellies on my Pygmy Goats and they are NOT bred! (two years without any bucks) so I just deduce they are huge oinks and have really huge rumens! Keep us posted! Will I see you at the CWCCWR Specialty in August? I'm coming!

Patty is so excited to have a strong group backing her!! She is quite the character in the barn. I need to get the heat lamps ready now....I hope she has them on a week night so I can call into work sick:)

Garrett,
Dixie and I will be at the regionals in August. I only live about 30 minutes from the site. Maybe you can stop over to visit if you have time....though I am sure Ferris will keep you busy:)
