Have I mentioned that my brother and I have a goat farm? Anyway, we’re right in the middle of kidding season right now, which means we’re really busy. Once nice thing about the hours I spend up in our barn is that often the work I do doesn’t require too much thought, so I can be brainstorming my story ideas. Plus the goats love it when they hear us talking, so sometimes I’ll work through scenes from my book out loud, going over and over certain parts until it sounds right.

We bottle feed the kids for the first several days, and then we teach them how to drink from a bucket. Here some of our kids are all eagerly slurping up their milk. It can get tiresome checking on the goats all the time, checking to see if they’re in labor, but when we get to experience a birth, it makes it all worthwhile.
So, do you have any animals? If so, what are they?
