Nursery Updates at Gullringstorp


Hilda continues to become a better goat mommy.  She has bonded well with her babies and there is the constant sound of goat chatter in their box.  What a great change. I will give it a couple more days before I take the fence down.

Frida and  her babies are having short field trips :

Today August 15, Frida  and her babies  spent some time outside.  Not just a visit, but a whole hour in the baby yard:

Frida got a bowl of fresh strawberry plants from our garden, a container of chopped veggies, hay and straw. They also got a cool fresh bowl of water.
