I've been quite remiss lately with my blogging.  However, we've been quite busy chez Lawyer Cheesemaker.

The goats were vaccinated...thanks Dr. Mom.
Basil was banded.
Daisy and Sage were sold and will be leaving the farm next week.
All goats still have very healthy and strong horns!
I attempted to re-burn Lola's horns with disbudding paste.  (Do not do this. Ever. The stuff is horribly strong and the little girl cried continuously for nearly 2 hours).

I've made roughly 20 lbs of cheese including: chevre, feta, ricotta, queso blanco, mozzarella and one unsuccessful attempt at cheddar.

One of Sage's horns is growing while the other appears to have been successfully disbudding with the iron. Therefore, I correctly disbudded 1 of 6 horns.  Not good.
