Kids - No, Not Children, Goatlings!
We got goats primarily for milk. Lulu is an Alpine, which is a good milk producing breed and their father was a Nigerian Dwarf, which is also a good milking breed. Both breeds tend to have good temperaments and this bunch has been very sweet. Snowy is a little shy and is a momma's girl, but Stormy has all the confidence in the world and loves to be friendly. I'm just tickled that we were able to get these gals and bring them home already.
The latest conundrum is that the chickens and guinea fowl have decided they do not want to share the barn with goats and have decided the tree outside the fence is preferable. Bird brains!
