Meet the cast - Orange Spice (for now)
This is the newest member of the From the Country Farm family! Since Katie and Strawberry did not take and I'd sort of planned a few things (details coming soon!) which require more than one milking doe and Venus not delivering until the end of June, I was sort of in a pickle! Sooo I found a 4-H family that was selling off their Nubian herd because they are more interested in the LaMancha breed; who had a Nubian doe in milk and brought this little lady home. She's not quite two yet and she's got a long life ahead of her and just freshened about two weeks ago! I'm excited to see where things go now! The kids are SO smitten with her that they are sleeping in the barn with the entire herd tonight. Oh my! Morning stories should be fun to hear!
