Houston Livestock Show

We are right in the middle of the three-week long Houston Livestock show. We did not show any goats this year, though I'd have loved to. When we crunched the numbers the sad reality was that we simply could not afford the milk lost for the three days that the goats would be at the show. We are having a hard enough time meeting demand with all of the goats here, I am not sure our customers would forgive us if we sent a batch away for three days and were down that much more milk!

The girls are showing their rabbits, though. (We are not yet selling rabbit milk, will keep you posted on that one!) I am not actually sure what they are showing, maybe Mini Rex and Dutch? but this is Secretariat, a Californian. Oh, and Sara.

If you are at the show, stop by and see the buns--and the girls.

OK, you so stepped into this comment.

Dina Byrnes: "I had no idea you could milk a cat."

Greg Focker: "Oh yeah, you can milk anything with nipples."

Jack Byrnes: "I have nipples Greg. Could you milk me?"

"What has that got to do with what we're talkin' about?"

We want to raise rabbits, so we'll make a machine for milking rabbits and send it over there. ;) :D
