When Life Comes Full Circle......

Three years ago this April, my first LaMancha Liberty kidded with twins, a doe and a buck. It was such an exciting day on the little farm for me!

Libby was a great Mom and I loved her antics with her kids.  I named her daughter "Sweet Pea" because she was just a total sweetie and just cute as a button.  Sweet Pea is one of my goats that just stands there and lets me hug her forever.

Pictured above is Sweet Pea on the right and her brother, aka "Mr. Annoying"  because he is also insanely friendly to the point of being annoying.  They were about 3 months old in this picture.  This past Fall Liberty passed away due to cancer.  I was completely heartbroken and took her loss very hard.  Liberty brought my love for LaManchas full circle.  They are the most loving goats and truly make connections with humans. There are days when the barn seems empty without her.

This is Sweet Pea today.  She is due to kid in about 2 weeks and I am so excited!  She will be a first time mom and to say that her babies mean alot to me is a small understatement! Her mom meant so much too me so her babies are just like a little gift from Heaven and Libby, and it will be an even bigger gift if they are twin does:)  I will of course, be happy with healthy kids regardless!
