Sweet Life Farm
Back to school soap gift.
Miss Charity is my favorite girl. She came to our farm about 5 years ago. She is definitely the boss of the other girls but still a very gentle soul. She is the absolute best mother ever, maybe a little too good sometimes when she won't let her kids play with other kids. One season Charity gave us nearly 3 gallons of milk in one day!!! It was truly amazing.
Pebbles is Fruit Loop's daughter and the granddaughter of Charity. Pebbles is 2 years old. She did not get bred last year but hopefully we get the job done this year so she can help make out goat milk soap!!
This is Sorrel. She gives us a little under a gallon of milk every day. She was born here on our farm. Her mother is my beloved Flower, who was the inspiration for our logo. Flower is no longer with us but her spunky, stubborn attitude lives on in Sorrel! She was named Sorrel for the heart shaped black spot on her nose. It looks like a wood sorrel leaf.
This is a baby picture of our sweet Lala. She is much older now with a limp and a grumpy geezer attitude but she will always be our baby. Our Great Pyrenees protect the goats from predators. They require no training. It is all instinctual.
This is Marie, our youngest Great Pyr. It has been a joy to watch grow into taking her role on as top dog. She is ridiculously friendly and eager to please and actually takes commands!! Unusual for some Great Pyrenees.
Fruit Loop is Charity's daughter. She was born teeny tiny at under 3 pounds. We tried to bottle feed her in the house but she would have none of it! She only wanted to be with her mom.
Spring is our favorite time of year around here! My nephews love to come over to hold the baby goats. I'm pretty sure Dylan is holding Hawkeye (on the right). Hawkeye is one of our herd sires and will be bred to Sorrel this fall.
