Wooden Soap Dishes

To preserve the life of your goat milk soap, it is essential to keep it well drained.  If the soap bar sets in just a wee bit of water for any amount of time, you will find it begins to dissolve and go to "mush"!
We are now offering several different soap dishes to help your soap bars last longer.  

One Piece Tray - $4.50
This simple soap dish sets up on 4 soft, padded "feet" which help keep it in place.  It is made of Beech Wood.

Curved Soap Dish - $4.50
This dish is my favorite!  Also made of Beech Wood, it's unique, curved design fits our soap bars perfectly!
Two Piece Tray - $8.50
This Beech Wood, two piece soap dish sets up off the counter top on 4 soft, padded "feet" to keep it from sliding around or sitting in water.  The top piece lets the soap bar drain well while the bottom piece keeps the counter top dry!

Naming "Bloomin' Barnyard's" Newest Addition's

I left mama and babies out to play today!

They are 4 days old.


They love to run...

...and jump!

Splat!!!  That jump was a little big!

A new friend???

I'm looking for names for these new babies.  Since the name of my little farm is "Bloomin' Barnyard", I name all my kids with names of flowers or plants.  What flower names would you suggest for these twins?  Don't forget, one is a boy! =)

New Babies!

We have been blessed with two healthy babies today-1 male & 1 female!

I put Daisy in the kidding pen yesterday afternoon with a heat lamp.  It was so-o cold and I was suspicious she might be kidding soon.  There were no kids yet this morning so I kept checking on her every couple hours.  I went out at 11:00 a.m. and there were no real signs of labor yet.  When I checked again at 12:30, both kids were born and up walking around!    
Daisy is such a good mother!

The kids are a Nubian & Oberhasli cross.  Daisy, is a Pure Bred, Registered Nubian.
Their sire, PB Floyd, is an American, Registered Oberhasli.

I milked Daisy so I could be sure the kids got some rich, creamy colostrum right away!

The little boy drank heartily!  His sister, however had to be coaxed into learning the art of sucking. =)

Peek-a-boo!  Kids are so much fun!
