Gwynne continues our April kidding with a set of triplets, bucklings Martin and Harris and doeling Meg. Saanen Ruth gets "The Easiest Kidding Conceivable" award and is now contributing a bit to the dairy.
The herd is out and about on greening pasture, and I'll soon mow down the overgrown brambled trails so that the herd and I can resume woods rambles. Continued quiet time in the dairy with low cheese production as newly freshened does focus on mothering kids.
