Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. They’re finally here! We finally have our goats!
They make for a very busy day these days, so I won’t go into details right now…just wanted to make the announcement and give you the stats. After they’ve gotten used to their new home and feel more comfortable, I won’t have to spend quite so much time with them. For now, though, they are demanding a lot of attention. I had no idea they were such emotional creatures.
So, here they are:
This is Sugar (they came with their own names). She is a Nubian and is about a month pregnant (yes, this means we’ll have Christmas or New Year babies). It has taken a little time, but she has finally warmed up to us. She is very sweet and playful…full of personality. She’s definitely the alpha goat.
And here’s Twinkle. She is a Nubian, too, and is also pregnant. Both of these girls normally have twins, so we may have a whole herd by the first of the year…LOL. Twinkle is very docile and sweet. She has seemed a bit depressed since the move, but she is starting to come around. She loves to be petted, and she loves the attention she gets from the kids.
I’m sure I will have many, many goat adventures to share in the future, but right now we are spending our time petting them, loving on them, and helping them to feel more at home in their new environment. We can’t seem to get much else done around here because we want to spend so much time petting and watching them…much more entertaining than TV. We’re all just smitten.
Linking this one up on the Barn Hop today…visit other homesteads, and see what’s going on!
