The girls are in the news......

The News Virginian and News Leader that is.  Click on the links to read both stories.  We are busy getting ready for the Boer Bok Field day tomorrow.  There is a lot of news I need to update on the blog.  I will update it in the next few days.  Meanwhile you can read both of these articles. 

One exciting thing I want to tell you about is that Peck's BBQ is preparing our Boer Bok BBQ for the field day lunch.  

We took a Boer Bok Bone in Leg for them to practice with and we got to go for a taste testing.  What a treat!  Clay and I have always loved Lexington style BBQ.  We never dreamed we would be able to eat a healthy BBQ with our own Boer Bok meat!  

I will update the blog in a few days, lots of news to tell you about.  Including video of the girls arriving at their latest job.  
 Until then......

  1. Those articles were good, especially the News Virginian story, I feel like I learned a lot about the goats. I liked the part about Mr. Max teaching the little goats how to hold the branches down. I miss you guys and thanks for praying for Bella!
