When I went outside this morning to wrangle my goats to milk them, I noticed something had changed. All of a sudden it was October. It was chilly in a way that only fall in North Florida could be, slightly drier and more temperate. While it was a cold, wet summer for the most part, the past few weeks have been the kind of hot we used to in these parts.
It’s been a strange year, normally my goats start going boy-crazy at the end of July, but this year it took until last night for it to finally occur. I’m not the only one to note this odd behavior in our dairy animals.
