At 8:30 in the morning, she was in the back seat of the car, still bleating pitifully, and we were on the road to Thorndike, about a 35 minute drive. No hesitation when we got to the Amish farm where my buck is housed. She was bred several times as I conversed with the young Amishman -- I hesitate to say "boy", but he's only in his mid to late teens -- about horses, goats, and conformation. An hour later, I loaded her back in the car, and nary a peep out of her on the way home. Nature is wonderful, and I have no doubt she settled. I really don't want to keep Leah. The goat market isn't all that good at the moment, and I'm hoping she'll be easier to sell if she's due to kid in the spring, particularly bred back to a Sable buck.

I bit the bullet today and bought a digital video/still camera. I lost (misplaced?) my Kodak digital camera that I bought 10 years ago, and after not being able to find it for several weeks, decided I had to replace it. It's amusing, in crooked sort of way, (is that irony?) that my old camera cost me $527 when I bought it, a high quality, megapixel camera with both digital and soft zoom. The new one, which can do soooo much more, including sharp video, was only $98! Ah, technology! It moves at an alll out gallop while I'm poking around in the barn.
