Haven't received it yet Colyn.

I used to have a goat so I know all about them. Though I love cows, goats are much smarter and quite hard to outwit sometimes! I knew one who used to put her head over the half-door and slide the bolt to let herself out, then go all along the other boxes letting the rest out!

I don't mind the smell of goats as long as you don't keep a billy. Now they DO stink!

Love Lynne

Hi Lynne
Hope you got the package I sent you.
Look after yourselves and I hope to see you later this year. Sidmouth would not be the same!!
BTW beware of goats. They are well known for eating anything that might cross their path, including hedges, flowers, vegetable plants and herbs. That is why, in many parts of the world goatherds are nomadic - the goats need to be given new pasture, as the current pasture has been eaten clean.
Also, goats stink! Not to be compared with the lovely smell one gets from cattle.
Luvnkisses
Colyn.

Thanks again for all the support guys. We're looking at it from the point of view that it gives me the equivalent of a full working day a week extra to spend on the herb business. That should, hopefully, start to pay dividends, but it will be a while before we see the benefits so it's going to be something of a struggle 'till then. Oh well. I just discovered that breast of lamb is only .90 per lb!

By the time that I got down here, Lynn, things seem to be looking up for you a little. However, the comments that I intended might interest you.
I was made redundant for the sixth time at the age of 55. (I ASSURE you that none of them were my fault!) I was looking at jobs which paid little more than half of my previous money, so I did a course in bookkeeping and started my own business, which has kept me off the dole queue for the last eleven years. It has never paid more than average money, but it's the best job I ever had in my life.
I've no doubt that you are industrious because your occupation demands it, so don't be afraid of the paperwork, with a good grounding it gets easier over the years, and the accountant is effectively free, as his fee comes off your tax.

Here in Godzone some people are making quite good money breeding Highland cattle for lifestyle blocks. Lovely beasts.
There is money to be made stripping wallpaper, gardening, odd jobs, mowing lawns, changing refrigerator seals (of all things,) all of which, apart from the cattle, cheap to set yourself up in.

Good luck. And don't get a Siamese, they are very prone to road accidents.

Just got this in an email from Mouldy. It's one of many on a list, but I thought it, esp., might bring you a smile:

Did you ever stop and wonder......
Who was the first person to look at a cow and say, "I think I'll squeeze
these pink dangly things here, and drink whatever comes out?"

I will give all the cows an extra hug on Wednesday evening. My boss is keeping four, two of which are dry and waiting to calve, so she will be milking two. I don't know how many she plans to keep in the long run, but when this all blew up several months ago she was going to keep two for calves and house milk. She still wants to raise a few calves and show them. I'm going to offer to go over and lend a hand occasionally in return for some 'real' milk. Two of my favourite cows are going though. *sob,

It's a good idea about the goats, but one still needs somewhere to keep them. Goats in this country need good housing and protection from weather as they are not as hardy as sheep.

Love Lynne

Oh...this is so sad. I was hoping it would all turn out okay. {{{{{HUGS}}}}}

Do you all mow grass over there? I know of a woman who is making a great living renting out her sheep as grass mowers. She takes them to the place, puts up a temp. pen around the area to be *chomped* and they go to town. I don't see why you couldn't use goats instead and it could be part-time.

Give the cows some hugs, too, please. I love cows!

Trouble is, my job wasn't full time so finding one that fits in with my herb business would be difficult. And the way petrol is going up, travelling any distance isn't worth it. Having been a mining area round here, there aren't many livestock farms in the neighbourhood and no one milks, either cows or goats.

Oh well, at least it frees up more time to concentrate on the herb business.

Wednesday will be really hard though, when I say goodbye to the cows for the last time.

Love Lynne

Could you transfer some of your cow skills to milking goats? With the rising demand pretty much everywhere for goats' milk for cheese and the anti-cow-milk crowd, there must be some largish herds of goats somewhere.

Plus, goats are so neat with their rectangular pupils and long ears!

Small farms are so precarious here in the UK. However, after the problems over the past few years in farming, if you really do have skills with cows, I would have thought that there might be openings, particularly with people who are rebuilding rare breed collections.

It may mean relocation, though.

Time to git your own cows - then no bosses can take 'em away.

I know, cows are costly. Here, if you've a suitable field, you can often take care of a herd over summer, usually cows that are about to calve or young steers (big calves, really) on grass.
