"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

Well Twins Again!

New life this morning in the goat pen!

Twin A has white patch on his back, Twin B is mostly tan.

The twins this evening

The water in New Mexico has been wonderful for growing critters!! Here are the newest set of kids born on the farm to Daphne! Both are males and were born this morning around 10 am.

Pretty good year on the farm as we started with seven goats(5 does 2 bucks) and increased thus far by five. All the males will be sold except Pepe. Goat is pretty popular here this far south. Once we wean the first set of twins born(on January 20) we will be up and running again with making cheese and soap and by June should sell at least two of the males.

Life is pretty amazing when you know what your food eats before you eat it! No growth hormones or modified feed given to these critters and because of that the simple life becomes the safe life too.

Have a great day!

Your goats look great. Derek and I are pretty fed up with our year old twind from last year.

Derek wants to slaughter them. I was wondering if you could give us some advice and recipes?

I didn't know that you made your own soap and cheese!! How wonderful! I wish we could keep goats here in town. My boys so love to see the picture of your 'kids'. =)
