We have been preparing for a load of hay to be delivered. It came Memorial day when most of the guys were off for the holiday. We were able to get it unloaded today. It was HOT!!! Usually the heat does not arrive until June. But that mild winter we had is giving us a hot hot year.
James is a young man who helps at the farm with the milking and taking care of livestock. Great Help!
Philip stacking hay on top.
Great helpers and brothers, Philip and Evan.
This is Luke who has come to help hay for a few hours.
This is Levi and he has come to help unload as well.
It was great to see it all unloaded and stacked so neatly.
The sheep were close by, checking out the excitement and seeing what was going on. They are all happy and cool now that they have been shorn. We did that a couple of weeks ago and finished the last 4 a couple of days ago.
Photos to the left are The General and his son Foop. Foop is white. The buck pasture is a great place for the boys to mess around and do guy things...
The three man guys are CH Gypsy Moon Sudoku, Oldesouth Shell Foop, and +*B Rosasharn MR General B +*S,+DAR
Oldesouth Shell Foop is a General Son.

That is enough for now folks. Hope you enjoyed the photos.
Everyone, it has been one fast month so far. Went to the Clemson, SC shows, had a blast. Won a large class of 2 to 3 year old milkers, some 2 and 3rds with Diamond's kids in juniors, but nothing to break the door down. Competition the best in the nation, so be happy not to come up the rear... Ha Ha. Had a great time visiting with folks I had not seen in a year and my friend Patsy Demo came along to give everyone a good time with her humor.
Teena Bagwell of Gypsey Moon Nigerians in South Carolina finally let me take her buck CH Gypsy Moon Sudoku *S home. I was thrilled beyond belief and she had him all clipped up like a movie star, WOW, he took my breath away...
He is sired by Rosasharn SS Sequoia +B,*S and his dam is Rosasharn SS Unique *4D AR. Unfortunately Unique lost half her udder to mastitisis and was not shown. I have seen her in person and she has a topline to die for, a beautiful doe with an unfortunate loss. She has compensated and easily able to raise triplets on her half udder. This doe is the brood doe everyone hopes for. Her daughters and sons have excelled across the board. His father Sequoia passed away at the age of 10 and this young buck has filled the gap for sure. Best disposition in the world, easy to deal with and a handsome hunk. His daughter Airianna was Reserve Champion Jr Doe at the ADGA nationals last year. Several of his daughters have earned thier Grand Champion legs as juniors.
Another doe brought home with a slight side drive of 7 hours was the spectacular SGCH NC Promisedland Rain-Beau 2*M. She is in milk and giving a half gallon a day, freshening last fall. This doe is sweet as sugar and can hand milk her or machine, she is cool. A dream goat and so thankful the Harrells let me bring her home.
We plan to milk her to her AGS stars when she freshens again. She could make it this lactation, but I want to see what the BMW girl can really do from freshening on.
Check out our 2013 breeding schedule for does going to be bred to CH Sudoku*S so far and we are taking deposits. We will be using Diamond's son Cognac and Marquie, The General and Sudoku mostly for our fall and spring 2013 breedings.
