I had to euthanize my friend Josie goat on May 14th. She had a tumor that was giving her a lot of trouble and it finally became too much and it was time. She was always such a good little friend.
Anza was desperately lonely and I had a big decision to make, whether to send her to another home with goats or whether to get a few more goats to keep her company. In the end, I decided on getting a few more goats, because I could not imagine not keeping Anza. She has been a goofy friend for ten years and I didn't want to let her go! So we made the tough decision to find a few more goats. We were able to locate a Nigerian Dwarf breeder who was downsizing her herd and was able to sell us two does, ages 7 and 5, mother and daughter. The first few days were a bit rough. Anza was confused, the new goats were confused, and there was some goat posturing and squabbling, but now they are getting along ok and Anza is back to eating well and acting like herself. The new goats are fun and sweet. Snickers is very bossy and absolutely is herd head! Anza is a bit put out by this but has adjusted.

I painted this girl with acrylics from a porcelain kit from Allfordoll on Etsy. She's Little Lou II and is about 11 inches high. I washed her face off and repainted her about five times until I was more or less satisfied but I think with more practice I can do a better job. I made her dress from a pattern by Nedra, but I didn't feel like doing the pleats so I just gathered it and used some 1930's feed sack material to make a play dress. I'm happy enough with this girl. I can't decide whether to call her Lou or something else. I have a second kit to make up, which is the regular Little Lou. I already started her painting.

Flowers are blooming, birds are singing and the lawn needs mowing, badly. I am charging the dead battery of my riding mower so I can hopefully do that chore later on today! I have been sewing a smidgen but not much. This dress is the prize for a contest on Our Little Darlings, but sadly, there are almost no entries!
