Meet Fern, Dandy, Rose and Ruby!



They're big girls now - about 150 lbs on the Boer cross girls - and ready to have babies themselves.

So - show me your goats!

~ Enjoy ~

Everybody wants one, and everybody gets rid of them.... kind of like potbelly pigs. They are adorable for several months though.

Mine only stay here until they're off the bottle.

This was 'off to the big barn' day.

I have 8 and a buck.

We sell the milk and show/breed them.

Their milk makes fabulous cheese and bread amongst other things.

Their meat is fabulous and so good for you!

It's an industry not many know about unless you're 'in the know'.

I'm glad you enjoyed the girls.

God Bless

Oh I'v had goat meat BBQ'd in a pit, We had then when I was a teen and milked them as well. Goat meat is great, I could live on a diet of it....... in Taco's.

I suppose if your farm oriented, what's another mouth. silo's yard soon won't be.......

These girls are only in the back yard when being bottle fed. Once they're older then go to the 'big kid' barn and that's NOT near the house, lol!

And yes, goat meat is fantastic. BBQ is great. In stews is wonderful - it self thickens. Just need to make sure and let it hang for a while. Fresh is tough.

Silo, these are PRECIOUS! I'll keep these videos handy for when I need a lift. What a riot!

Now: what is it, do you think, that Dandy keeps saying to you so emphatically?

OMG!

Silo, they are so cute.

I've got the giggles. And hearing you giggling makes me giggle even more.

Thank you for sharing.

I am glad things are good for you.


I don't have any goats, but the next time I catch a talkative catfish I will post.

When these babies are bottle fed they imprint and I'm, well, 'Mom'. And like any little baby they want 'Mom' ALL THE TIME!

I'm gld you enjoy her. She's such a great girl and no nearly as loud now.

We have 2 pigmys. Started with Daisy and Rolphie, they had a baby named Bucky, then daddy died.
. Rolphie was truly a pain in the tushi! We had no idea what we were doing. And had absolutely no idea how smart they are! To top it off, we let them roam about the place. Our cars will NEVER be the same! All scratched up. And I couldn't plant anything because I'd turn around and it was eaten. We now have them penned, though they still get out sometimes.

There's an old saying "If it can't hold water, it can't hold a goat!

HA! That's pretty funny, the goats calling back like that.

No goats to show ya here, but can show ya a whole lot of calf pictures. The calves can be pretty funny around this time of year too. They're right about that age where the milk thievery begins, and they're smart enough to figure out when the mom's have their heads stuck in the feed bunks is the perfect time to sneak up behind them and see if they can steal some milk from someone else's mom. It's pretty funny to watch.

We had a couple of goats for a while. I adored them. I taught them tricks. But man they made so much noise, no fence was high enough to contain them, they ate all my rose bushes, and spent most of their time on our roof, breaking the tiles. My husband got so fed up, I came home one day and they were gone. He'd given them away.

I was sad... but our neighbors have goats that roam all over. They take off in the morning, scour the hills, and all come home single file at 6 PM.

Goats are awesome. As long as they belong to someone else.
