This blog will be just for goats.

Will look more professional when I want to share goat stuff with goat people if they don't have to wade through unrelated stuff, right?

Here is a goat - one of my goats, in fact:


Her name is Siena. She is a LaMancha dairy goat. She has a companion, a LaMancha wether, named Benson. They are ridiculous fun. Yes, they do have ears. No, I didn't crop them - they are born with tiny ears. They look weird at first, but you get used to them, then they're cute. <3

I've shown Siena once - she got first in her class, by virtue of being the only goat in it. I'll show her more, and I'll milk her twice a day until she dries up in spite of milking, or fall 2012, whichever comes first.

Benson went to the show with her, and made an impression by virtue of being the noisiest animal there (and I'm including Nubians), and probably the only wether. They don't give out prizes for that, unfortunately. His manners are improving with age. Pretty soon he will start learning to do a job. Packing first, then hopefully driving, cause I think he'd be the most adorable little cart goat ever. :-D

  2. LOL. They do that! They don't sound very wild to be at a wildlife park, though. Did you take pictures? I want to see some Scottish goats!

    Ok! I don't know how that will work for you, but I'll try to send you something. I might flake, though. I'm really bad about remembering to do things when I have a chance to do it. :-P

  7. I don't think I was being mean to IF on t heblog. Just making a point. For her to come on and make a stement like that is a bit rude. How does she think th eothers will take it?
    It's meant to make the others feel sheepish at best. It was a type of rebuke.
    I just wanted to point out to her how easy it was to leave a comment not related to the post.
    I think it' sgreat that we all can chat together . Not everyone can go to chat.
    But This is not the 1st time some one has spoken up about this small thing we do on the blog and make a big deal of it.
    I think I will stay away. I get enough of feeling small at home.
