There must be other folks here with goats. So I figured I'd start a thread for us all!
My herd is small, mostly Nigerian Dwarf goats, except for my single Angora goat. I keep them for milking, and companionship. They're lovely little critters, very sweet and smart. They're like little dogs with hooves!
On to pic spam! Because I don't have anyone to help me do any proper 'setup' poses on flat ground, all aren't perfect. But then again, I prefer a goat looking natural rather than stretched.
This is Keweenaw Copper Lady, the first goat born on my farm. Her conformation turned out great, so she became a keeper! Yea, she is a part of my avatar, because this picture turned out so properly.
This is Grasse Acres Winter is Coming. She is a a delightful little girl. And I've never seen a goat with such contrast! The buckskin pattern with stark white is amazing!
This is Pelican Acres TLP Yseult. AKA, Suzie Q! Her full brother from the same birth is a champion buck. She is bred for kids this March, and I am excited!
Sunnybrook Yoko is my herd queen. It is her way, or nobody's way. She is an absolute doll, a great milker, and a fantastic mother. Yoko is bred for April kids.
Her udder, yay for goat milk!
Bailey, this is her when her kids were a couple of hours old. She is bred for April kids, too.
Cedar Pond Farm Tractor George (I didn't name him, he came prenamed, hah!). He throws blue eyes all around. Literally, every kid he has sired pops out with blue eyes. After a few more kiddings, if that trend continues, it will be obvious he is homozygous for blue eyes. He gets his job done with gusto, and is an easy to handle boy.
Grasse Acres Johnnie Walker is my other buck, a young guy. He was a bottle baby (his mother got mastitis) so he is a pocket goat. He can be a little too friendly sometimes, but I love him dearly. Three out of four of his grandparents are permanent grand champions, so I have big expectations for him!
Copper Lady and her brother when they were a lot tiner!
Bailey's kids from earlier this near, Nigoras! They turned out soft as fluffy bunnies, even though they're much older than this picture! Their winter coat is the plushiest thing I've ever felt. They were bought by a a close friend of mine.
