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...

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

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.

Someday I hope to have goats, maybe breed them for 4H. I think they are so cute!

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.

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