The goats

Goats and hay

Haven’t been paying much attention to the goats lately, so I checked ’em out for a while this morning. They have absolutely no problem with the cold, eating hay and hanging out pretty much as usual. Of course, serving them is a lot more work when it’s freezing, lugging buckets of hot water from the main barn, since the pipe to the convenient goat barn tap is frozen. I did goat chores for a winter, but right now, it’s Bob’s thing. Oh, well. :) This gang of girls has had the same line-up for the last couple of years, and some I’ve known since birth… Familiar faces. A couple even have names…



  1. Great picture pf the goats….do you milk them? I would like to get a few, but the husband is leery….they would be great for eating down a lot of the brush around here! I can’t imagine you have time for milking, along with all your other things….


  2. We are down to just one lonely goat, a pygmy.  All of our have been strays so she is the last remaining.  I think this spring I might actually go look to get some more…unless the humane society calls me again, lol!

    Great picture of yours! Kim
