Goats With No Names

The Pony has been goatherding for an hour every morning. He snapped these pics with his phone. They are the triplets born on May 27. Mother and babies are thriving. The two boys are in the top photo. The other is Nellie with a piece of wood taped to her head to keep her from being stuck in the fence. Her daughter is a chip off the old block. Looks like she's going to be longhaired, white and tan.

The triplets are learning to eat grass. They are the cutest when they romp and frolic, playing king of the woodpile.

I'm jealous that you get to have goats. I want to come snuggle that little white one.

Baby goats are the new kittens. They are so cute when they're born that you want to SQUEEZE them. Especially when they scamper around flipping their little goat tails.

Your goats are gorgeous and healthy! I shall post some pics of the goats on the farm. We are down to just Bella (the mumma goat) and Bebe (the kid) in our back yard now. Apparently, all the girls run to hide behind Billie The Goat whenever hubby goes to the farm to check them out. It makes me laugh, all the girls behind one male! Hrumph!

Or when you hold a carrot slice right above their mouth and they nip nip nip at it with their nippy little goat lips. I turn into a 6 year old girl at petting zoos where they let you buy food and feed the baby goats and miniature goats.

I bet Billie is having the time of his life.


Our goats are partial to sliced bread. It's like goat candy.
