The goats on the left are my goats! They are Nigerian Dwarfs. The one on the left is Esau and the one on the right is Emma. Aren't they cute? Goats are fun. They have wonderful personalities! Yesterday, I discovered my Emma was in heat so I arranged for her to have a "date". This morning I took her to meet Cori's Fancy Prince Edwin. He is the goat on the right in the picture on the right. What do you think? Handsome?? He is chocolate brown with blue eyes. Emma wasn't sure he was the one for her and it was fun to watch as she played hard to get but in the end I believe they got the job done. Time will tell. In five months I hope to have at least one little one running around here!
When I took Emma out of the van I left Esau behind. He wasn't too happy about being left. Goats are herd animals and don't do well alone. I thought I had latched the crate well but I guess not. When we were almost at the barn where the buck was, my friend Patty looked back and here comes Esau running at top speed to catch up with us! I was a bit nervous at first. I wasn't sure how he would react being on a strange farm not in a fence. He did great! He stayed right with me and never left my side! Goats are so fun. Hmmmm, I wonder if goats and weaving go together? Three of us have them!
