since we forgot to take the camera to oregon, i feel as though i have gone a bit overboard with taking picture since we got back.
not a bad thing, i suppose.
i'm just going to post a few...
i have stopped nursing leica. i just wasnt making enough milk any more for his growing little body and we were all suffering. after long hours of very extensive research and a will fueled only by what i'd call stubbornness, i am now feeding him raw goat milk.
i worked really, really hard to get this child solely on the boob in the beginning. it was a rough start, to say the least.
i will never forget the lloonngg, s l o w road that we conquered together.
leica and i are a great, albeit stubborn, team.
both of us. stubborn as bulls. i could tell that about him the minute i met him. he is a fighter. as well as having that spark, he is so easy going and confident in me and dustin to provide just what he deserves.
i figured, based on how important it is to us to provide the healthiest for this child and how hard we have worked to do so, i'm going to find another mother to provide milk for this growing boy.
that mother just happened to be some goats.
this is fran sharp.
she raises said goats and she does it with the utmost care.
through my research, i found her dairy goat farm, in elgin, tx, only a quick 30 minute trip east out of austin.

the floppy-eared ones are called Nubian goats.
she has another breed whose ears stick straight up. they are called Boers.
those are some full utters.
