Hoggetowne Faire

Last weekend first update. Sticky Dollar Day went OK for Herself, a few sales but about as expected. The rain overnight did make things wet, not as wet as we've ever seen the site by a long shot though. During the day on Friday, with both of us gone, one of the goatmommas died. Not sure why. We've snatched her kids and are bottle-feeding.

This meant I needed to get that done as well as the usual round before heading in to Faire. They did OK. Made it to site by 11:00.

meb21 stopped by the booth to meet face-to-face for the first time and visit a bit. Fun visit, always like meeting the folks from LJ when possible. Plus, it proved very interesting to catch a clue about how big a draw this event became over the 22 or 23 years it's been running. I've lost count. It brings people in who are willing to drive 2 - 4 hours for a day.

More feeding to do this morning, then off to Faire. There's a couple other items on the list with feeding, prepping for tomorrow and a forecast of rain and shelter for the goatmommas. It's also Sunday, and our experience with Sundays and Faire is that the crowd won't begin growing until shortly after noon, even though Gate opens at 10:00.

Still, off to work now.

You must wait.

I'm working this one. Not like the time you came down to visit BARF. There, I was Spectator with plenty of time for photos and processing. There are pictures; we'll see if they are any good.

Oh...sorry about the goatmomma. Metritis? Were I nearer, I could offer to do a necropsy.

Don't know. Herself is speculating she may not of passed a placenta. With Faire going on, we've not had time to investigate much ourselves.

The offer is appreciated, even with the distance. We're just not sure. It's good her kids are making a transition to bottles. We'll see how well they do this morning.

This is BossStaysHomeDays and you are not staying home and I miss you.

But I like making rounds with you all the time.

i think it's highly unfair that houdini does not get to go... he just needs a costume.
