    We eased out into the pastured then called to the goats who for some reason where in the barn on a beautiful warm day.

    It took a few times calling their names but we finally got their attn.

    It was feeding time for the new bucklings we brought home Monday. Lilah, my lead doe, leaned down as if to say to the baby it was okay to go.

    Immediately they both came running.

    I have a good crew to help feed these growing babies.

    If you ever wanted a goat I encourage you to get 2 or 3. They are wonderful together. They also make delicious milk!

    Here are photos of the geese and the blue orpington chicks.

    I grew up with goats and one of my favorite chores was feeding the kids. Along with geese I've never had any luck talking my hubby into getting me some tho.

    That is so cute. I'm glad it appears the others have no problems with them being there.

    They are so, so, so cute!!! I want a goat so bad but we only have a 1/2 acre and it's mostly rock. Poor things wouldn't have much pasture at all. [​IMG]

    Oh, they are so CUTE!

    Everyone has been telling me how good goats are to have. I'm still not so sure I can handle them though. We have only about 4' fences and not in the greatest shape and I wouldn't want them climbing out.

    They sure are cute though! And it would be nice to have the milk. I could probably sell it at the health food store I work at (as long as it's labeled "for pet food" ... it's pretty hard to legally sell fresh milk around here).

    You can't sell here either. Which is a real shame. The hoops and red tape to even produce artesan cheese is creating a lost skill in the US.
