Meet Blossom, she is our mascot here on Rumple Farm. Blossom is an 5 year old, all black Nubian. People often mistake her for pregnant as she was born with the fat gene. This is of no concern for Blossom. She is as curious, carefree and happy as a goat can be. Her curious nature often keeps her busy rooting around looking for treats or keeping up with chit chat over in the horse stables.
Last spring Blossom gave birth to two kids, Rocky and Poppy, who also live here on the farm. These days she has her hands full as the kids are nearly a year old, and have followed in her mischievous footsteps. They are frequently found sneaking off the farm in search of mint leaves, echinacea and whatever other delicious delights that can be found in our Sonoma neighborhood. We spend hours trying to lure Rocky and Poppy back to the farm each day and spend even more time patching up their escapes routes.
As a mother, Blossom is now deeply concerned about what her kids eat. While she has always been mindful of her diet, because of the fat gene she carries, she is even more mindful now about the food that she and her family eat because she wants Rocky and Poppy to grow up healthy, happy dairy goats. Here on her blog you will read about her musings on health, nutrition, and the environment. She will also keep you updated on happenings with Laloo’s. From the office window, she’s caught wind of an Ice Cream truck fixing to set out this summer, along with some new flavors.
