Talking Goats anyone? LOTS of pictures!

I have five Alpine goats, three mommas and two kids. We let them in the backyard on Saturday afternoon for some "clean up". The dogs were in with them, with us supervising of course. It went well and we got some cute photos! The young goats were born late January to early Febuary.

Anyone else have goats?

They're facebook photos. I'm hoping they show up here .

Goats attacking an unwanted small trees, with a nice rotting stump to stand on. I think April is considering mutany...

Yup, both April and Dainty use the stump as a launch point to jump over the fence. A handy 10' gate foils that plan...

All of the Goats eating moss and bark off the pine tree in our backyard.

April posting for the camera, lol.

Dainty decides she wants to be "queen of the stump" and chases Becca off.

Our dog Daisy bonding with baby goats Issac and Becca.

Our dog Geronimo making sure the goats keep in line.

Both dogs seem to enjoy the goats now, though the goats aren't so sure...

Goats are one of my favorite animals, they just have so much personality.

My BO is talking about getting a Fainting goat (???) to put in with his miniature donkeys. He said that when you scare them, they just fall over...LOL. I told him that if he did, don't be surprised if he heard me yell when I first got down to the barn...hehehe.

Honary "HFA" member...That's right, I'm admitting it!

BTW....That's NOT rain on your windshield!!!!

They are pretty! We used to raise Alpines and Nubians.
