Totes Ma Goats

Billy goat was delivered last week and he is nearly as sweet and docile as our two does.  The boys and I have made several trips up to treat the goats to the arugula still growing in our garden.  They really love it.  So far no action that we know of, but we will have him for a month and according to the Goat Whisperer, his presence should trigger hormones in the females conducive to kid making.  We shall see.

Billy has had a rough go of it.  He has been sparring with the other billy in his home flock and lost one of his horns.  He does have a sweet disposition otherwise.

I couldn't get the three of them in a photo together as they were perpetually moving about vying for arugula from the boys, but billy is about twice as big as our does.

This is Elsa.

I was going to say he looks a little ugly, but we'll just call it character. =)

Please, PLEASE, don't name to baby goat

I also concur, Billy isn't to pleasant to the eyes.

Love to you all,
