Happy new year to our generous donors! Our goat project is progressing steadily. We have had some wonderful rain recently and you can almost hear the grass growing as you walk around!! The staff are constantly cutting grass at the moment, which we are stacking and keeping dry for the winter.
Generally the tribe is all healthy and we have 22 does who are currently pregnant and will be giving birth in April or May. Sadly, we have had a couple of losses. We lost some goats from toxins in some of the plants in the bush. We lost another one due to staff negligence. We have had some staff issues, but have a new herdsman, Ben. He has joined us from Matopos and is in training.
As you will see from the photos, everyone is looking healthy and enjoying the fresh green grass. We look forward to starting construction of the staff housing as soon as the rains ease.
