Good Afternoon From Gullringstorp!


Well it took quite a bit of ingenuity and time, but somehow in the scorching heat we did it! We got ALL the girls all 19 into the new enclosure.

What a beautiful sight to see them all enjoying the bounties offered in the new area. They are happy with grass galore, cool water and shade from the workshop. My husband fixed the gate so it could be closed behind them. They will spend the better portion of the day in there. We will release them back into the larger enclosure to resume normal activities in the late afternoon.
I am delighted !

 

A Hot Humid Day at Gullringstorp .


Today is a very hot and humid day. Our goats are doing just what you should on a day like this.

Calling All Cats and Dogs, and Their Owners !!!


LilSis_logo1_Final_2

Li’l Sis Goat Milk Soap has added  3 new soaps to our collection: Baby Goat Soap, Rose Petals  Soap and our own Pet Soap.

Li’l Sis Pet Soap is full of wonderful and Eco-Friendly ingredients. My products have NO chemicals and NO artificial ingredients. There is NEVER any Animal Testing.

My 100 % Natural soap bar has ingredients that will not only moisturize your pets skin and fur, but condition it as well. Goat milk by itself is very nutritious to skin providing all the qualities of the 50+ vitamins and minerals that it contains.

After much research and reading , I have decided on a recipe that will serve many purposes for your pet. Not only will your pet have a clean , soft and shiny coat, but those pesky ticks and fleas will no longer be a problem. An added plus, your pet will smell wonderful.           I only use Natural Essential Oils in all my soaps, including my Pet Soap.

Li’l Sis Goat Milk Soap uses only vet approved Essential Oils in my Pet Soap :

Lavender Essential Oil to calm and relax your pet and to help make  bath time more enjoyable.

Peppermint & Clove Essential Oils to help combat fleas and ticks.

Our dog Max loves his bath time with Li’l Sis Pet Goat Milk Soap.

Max not only enjoyed his bath but his fur was soft, shiny and he smelled wonderful!

I always clean his eyes, ears and little nose after his bath with a soft cotton ball.

The Girl’s New Enclosure


Our girls are a bit slower to understand that they have a new section of their enclosure. Our boys were not so timid when they first saw their extension. This is their 2nd year so they were ready when we opened it up this year.

Once our girls were in the new section, they were curious. Some even started to eat the tall delicious grasses. But when one lady was ready to go back to the familiar , they all ran.

They will soon discover that this new area is not only delicious but fun also with a hillside to climb up.

Gullringstorp Bucks


We have had a few days of rain. So far, the weather is holding and our goats are happy as are our hens.

Our boys made it clear they needed mommy, so after my walk I went in to spend time with them.

LilSis_logo1_Final_2
Our day at the Bridge Day Market may have been cold, windy and very wet, but Li’l Sis Goat Milk Soap had a wonderful day!
We met great new people: to our right were vendors who hailed from Peru and to our left was a vendor who hailed from Germany. We enjoyed great conversation, helped each other with making change when needed and anchoring down our tents. We shared food from Peru and fried herring with lovely toppings. We enjoyed the sights and sounds of our local market. there was something for everyone at the Bridge Day Market.

Li’l Sis was happy to introduce her Eco Friendly product with many new customers.
Li’l Sis NEW Rose Petals soap was the winner of the day.IMG_3663_220140628-135943-50383273.jpg

We met Louise, who we call Max’s first mommy. She is the breeder we bought Max from. She is the owner of Waffotis Kennels in Östergotland.  Every time we met Louise, Max knows exactly who she is and they have a joyous reunion. It’s a pleasure to watch!

We were so happy to have our local youth band and marchers.

The only disappointment was not having our local neighbors visit our booth. We met only one neighbor and that was really nice. We had good wishes on FB but it would have been nice to see them. It did make me a bit sad.

Thank you everyone who wished Li’l Sis a great and successful day!

Thank you to all our new friends and Li’l Sis Goat Milk Soap customers !

Hönsbytardag i Österbymo


Li’l Sis Goat Milk Soap has participated in another Market for the season. This market was mainly a market for buying and trading hens, roosters and turkeys. There were other  small animals for sale , rabbits, bunnies and ducks. People came with crates and boxes to carry their new animals home. The lines grew longer as the afternoon went on.

There was also a wide assortment of hand crafted items for sale.

Li’l Sis Goat Milk Soap had a wonderful and successful day. It was really great to be able to introduce my Eco-Friendly all natural goat milk soap to many new people. We were also invited to attend another Market in the same area in July.
