Baby Update

The baby goats are just over a month old now. I figured I should do an update to let people know how they are doing and how well they are growing. First off, let me say they are the most friendly goats I think I have ever had, although right now they still are only coming to me for bottles.

Their horns are starting to come in now. We were going to dehorn them but decided not to as my other ladies all have their horns. This way, when we go to integrate them, they will have a better chance against the others. They are on 2 bottles a day now. We just moved them down a few days ago and they are not happy about it. Although they have started to eat hay and they are drinking water, so it was time to take them down.

Honeysuckle has quite the personality. She is very outgoing and loves attention. Diamond on the other hand is a little more reserved. She come to me but so far she runs from everyone else. Including my daughter who is helping me to feed them. She will only come with a bottle. They are both very vocal though. Every time someone opens a door they sound off.

They are growing fast and doing well so far. We are still not sure if they will be staying or not but I would like to keep them as I don’t have any of my girls babies as of yet. The decision will need to be made soon though.

Have a great day!


Sendry Dehydrator Review

First off, I’d like to say that there is no disclosure on this post because I bought this dehydrator and it was not gifted for review. However, there are affiliate links in this post. So what this means is if you make a purchase through the link, I will make a small commission at no cost to you. Now on to the good stuff.

My Daughter and Son-in-law got this dehydrator  for me for Christmas this last year and so far I love it. This one is roughly in the middle as far as pricing goes and a good one for someone just starting out with dehydrating foods.

So first, what do I like about this machine. I like that it works well. I like that it is all digital. I love that it shuts off at the end of the time all by itself so I don’t have to monitor it constantly. I like that it came with stainless steel racks for drying. This allows the heat to get all the way around what ever you put in it.

Now on to what I do not like about this machine. I have to say there is really only one thing I don’t like. It’s digital. Now I know what you’re thinking, how can that be both a like and a dislike? Let me explain. The digital temperature does not go up by each number so if you need say 260 degrees, it would have to go to 263 or something like that. It goes up by a funny number. It’s not even like 2 or 5  degrees I want to say it’s more like 3 degrees at a time. So in this case, I don’t like it.


However, having only one dislike, I have to say that I would recommend this to you. I have been using it since Christmas and I really do like it. It works well and does what it’s supposed to do. Sometimes I may have to run it a couple times to get something really dehydrated but it I still love this thing and I still use it all the time. And guess what? It is available on Amazon. You can get it here:

Do you have this dehydrator? I would love to hear your thoughts on it. Leave me a comment below and let me know.

Have a great day!
