Does this breed tolerate cold?

With a moo moo here and a moo moo there, here a moo, there a moo, everywhere a moo moo.

Yes, Ron, the Oberhasli breed is a very hardy breed of goat. They are a Swiss Alpine breed and do very well in cold temperatures. Now, if it is going to be cold, I do shut my goats up in their shed. Tonight the low is expected to be about 9 degrees so I shut the goats up. (I baby my goats!) They need to get in out of the wind and they do cuddle up for warmth. Now my buck absolutely freaks out if I try to close the door to his shed...so it stays open and he has always been fine.

Breakfast served to our guests this morning...cinnamon rolls with individual quiche made from our fresh chicken eggs! But no farm made cheese...yet!

That's gorgeous Charlene. By far, that was the best part of running our B&B, pampering guests with delicious food. I'm one sewer system closer to having a B&B again.

So, I always wondered how quick a turn-around I could do with my BnB. I found out today! First guest left this morning at 8 am, left their luggage in our living room. Beds were changed and towels in the wash by 8:30 am. Rooms were ready by noon, but still had to purchase a couple of items for the breakfast nook. Picked up son from school, ran to the store and finished up the rooms by 3:30, first guest arrived back here to pick up their luggage and left by 3:45 and new guests arrived promptly at 4 pm. Whew. Did it.

We do enjoy meeting such wonderful people from all over and several have become friends who stay with us repeatedly. What a treat.
