We now have 2 one-week old Nubian goats!
I apologize for these terrible snapshots, I didn’t have my D300 ready for shooting, but wanted to get pics of their first feedings here at home.
Here is my Mom feeding “my” goat: Emily. She is so sweet and follows me all around.
We have always wanted milking goats. However, with all that has been going on lately, we were no where near ready for them. But, I had to go to Blue Seal to pick up some chicken feed and shavings …. and well, these two girls were just staring at me. It wasn’t my fault. I had to buy them. You understand, don’t you?
Now Halis is scrambling to build them a goat house this weekend – a project he hadn’t planned on. Oops. I did trade him a Saturday though. Usually, I would get this Sat. to go out and yard sale, photograph, etc. But I let him have it to go shooting at a match in Augusta — so that I could have these goats 🙂 Not a bad trade. In a year, they will be birthing and giving milk. That will be amazing.
Till then, I have ALOT to learn, as I truly have no idea how to care for these little guys and am taking it one day at a time. Any suggestions???
