           The Ancona ducks hatched! Two on the 16th, two on the 17th, and two on the 18th. WOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! We kept three and gave the others to our friend who we had gotten the eggs from. :) They're so adorable.

           The weird thing is, they're so huge! I'm used to Khaki and Welsh babies, so when these Ancona giants popped out, I was super surprised. I guess I'm just used to tiny things...take my mom for example. >:D

           Willow, Momma's goat, decided to have her kids on the 25th, not late April - early May. Sven (who I named after the reindeer in Frozen) is white with black spots here and there. Vixen is white with black and tan patches all over her body. She also has blue eyes, whereas Sven has dark brown eyes.

           The goats were in my room, but we switched them with the duck who were in the attic. Now my ducks are in my room, and are they LOUD. At least they go to sleep when I turn off my bedroom lights, unlike the goats who always stayed up a lot longer than me.

           The books I'm writing are getting pretty long. Every time I take a fiction writing course, I see stuff I need to add or take away from my books.

           Currently, my one book, "Windswept Acres," is 68 pages long. Don't worry, it's going be a LOT longer when it's finished. I can't stand reading short books. My definition of short is 100 or less p ages, FYI. I'm aiming to make my books at least 150, but hopefully they'll be longer.

           Another thing I don't like is when you have to read a series from the start or you won't have any idea what the heck the book is about. I'm writing my books so you can read any book without having to read the others, although they will have a few references to the others in the series.

           Happy April Fool's Day! One of my friend's dad's birthday is today. My friend said that's why his dad doesn't want any birthday parties. >:)

           I would try to trick my family, but nothing I try ever gets them because I can't hide traps too well, and dying their shampoo is too obvious. :\ *Snaps fingers* Dang it... foiled again.

           Well, anyway, that's really all I had to babble about. :) I'll write more later, if I remember.

           Hasta la vista! Ciao! Adios! Aloha!

           Yeah... I think you get the idea.

            I gotta hoof it outta here...... Sorry, bad horse pun XD
