I Will Have Goats

I spent Sunday morning at Tanbrit Tiny Goats  learning the ropes from Sarah as she has asked me to farm sit a few days for her.  We bottle fed all these adorable kids.  The Nubian's were quite vocal about being hungry. One little girl was especially demanding and kept screaming MAAAAAA! MAAAAAAA! to grab our attention.  She sounded like a real child.  I couldn't stop laughing.

Sarah raises Nigerian Dwarf and Mini Nubian Goats and boy are they precious!  I was in bliss with all the cuteness surrounding me.  It's safe to say that I will certainly be owning little goats in the near future.

I also learned how to milk goats today.  I have never tried so there was a bit of a learning curve but I was getting better with each goat.  What was surprising was how different each goat was to milk.  My hands were quickly cramping but with a bit more practice, I'll get it.
The little guys and gals were recently dis budded.

Mini Nubian and I.  Isn't her face the sweetest!

The triplet mini Nubian's.  They are smaller than my cats!


Just a little headbutting.

I could not contain myself with all the adorable little goats. The video of them playing is so precious. I can see why you want these small goats, if I could have a couple I would too.

They are precious! I can see why you're so happy with them. I swear that one you're holding is smiling. How fun.

Adorable! I also want goats. Not sheep or cows or llamas or chickens. Goats.
