    Ah! Cute goats, everyone! I'm glad I'm not the only goat crazy gal out there!


    This is Louie. He is a year old Boer wether. He was about five/six months when that picture was taken. He is now a therapy goat for the foundation I work with. He helps kids with terminal ilnesses. He walks in parades, and even visits hospice patients! He has his own little vest and everything. I'll have to see if I can get a picture of him working.



    He is my pride and joy. My absolute little angel. He can be ponied, he comes when he's called, and even jumps like a mini. I've even ponied him out on the trail. He's the sweetest thing ever. Curls up in your lap if you sit down.

    This is Lola. I just picked her up on Saturday. She is four months old. Lola is half Lamancha and half Boer. She already is coming when she's called and follows me EVERYWHERE. I'll be showing her at this years fair and will be keeping her as my breeding doe as well as helping out with the foundation as a therapy goat.



    She will soon be Louie's best friend.

    Last year when I was at the fair, I was kneeling down to kiss Louie and I said: "Kill them swiftly, but do it, and do not doubt that YOU are a KILLER, LOUIE!!!!" and some guy looked at me like I was an idiot. His daughter shared the same row as I did, he never entered our row the rest of the fair. Apparently I scare people away. I will never quote Interview with the Vampire again at fair... Ever.

    Bwah ha ha that's soooo something I would have done. I love it!

    Going to have to scan pics of my girls, those were the pre-digicam days. Hoping to have the place goat ready come springtime, but I doubt I'll ever be able to track down my girls bloodlines - I think they were allowed to go extinct due to rampant CAE. But my pride and joy girl was a LaMancha doe named TwinRose Sweetpea I had delivered and bottle reared. (we bottle raised ALL the kids, but Sweetpea was my first) Aside from being a daily milker (she gave me 7.2 lbs of COLOSTRUM her first freshening. I think she single-handedly provided colostrum ice cubes for most the PNW that year. She milked regularly 5.5 lbs morning and night from then on.) She was also trained to pull a cart, carry a backpack, and jump into the backseat of my car. I miss her.

    Off to find pictures!

    Here's my two. They're both mixed breed 'mutts' I think. The big one is a wither, the little one is a billy. I got them at an auction and noone there really knew what breed they were. The second pic he's standing in an 18" snow drift.
