Alba Ranch Changes

Alba Ranch Changes

I have had a break from most yarn spinning due to goat kid season. Although I have still got a little spinning in between all the Ranch goings on.

This time of year brings bottle babies, training new goats to the milk stand, getting used to milking numerous goats again and than the fun times of weaning the goat kids.

We have also been doing some tree felling, getting the trails back into shape, and some much needed clean up around the property.

Of course it has to look worse before it can look better. But here are a few shots during this summer to catch you up with changes here at Alba Ranch.

We have been busy for the last 6 weeks.  We have had 13 kids born here on Alba Ranch so far with two more does set to kid soon.  Here are a few photos of the kids for your fun and pleasure.

Rosie (Chili Pepper’s Doe kid)



Chili Pepper is a FF this year and had a single doe.  Her doe is Rosie.

Jill is a third time mom and had twins yet again this year.  She finally gave me a doe and a buck pair.


Amber gave me triplets again this year same as last year.  Except this year it was one buck and 2 does.

Aveta is a second freshener this year and had a lovely set of twins.  She is the one that had the BLUE doe.


Smut is a FF this year and she had triplets right out the gate just like her mom always does.  She gave me a buck and 2 tiny does with all of them still alive and growing nicely.
