That's right, I said it, I am in love. And this time, I'm not talking about my husband. It's with these.
My heart has been stolen by these small, bouncy balls of fuzz. Catherine from Kentucky Hollers, has these beauties.
And now, I get to get two of them. YEA!!!!! I have always loved goats. I had one when I grew up. Want to guess her name? Get ready for it........Nanny! Original huh? Well anyway, I have thought about getting goats for a little while. Hubby is lactose intolerant so I thought he could drink goat milk. But, being the smart one that I am,(or I thought I was)I wanted to make sure I liked goat milk before I bought a goat. So I went to Wal-Mart(don't judge me!) and bought some "goat milk." EEEEWWWWWW!!!!!It was soooooo nasty. Boy, was I glad I bought and tried some milk before I got a goat. Now I won't waste my money.
Well, this weekend we went down to the Jenny Wiley Park for some seminars about making money on a small farm. It was good, but some of the stuff I already knew. One of the big things that they said was coming up right now, was goat milk and cheeses. Too bad I don't like the taste of goat milk. Another thing they said, the goats eat scrub brush and thorns. Our pasture can get overrun by cockle burs and such, if we don't bushhog it every so often. Goats would save us from having to do this. Hmmmmmm.
Anyway, after the seminars were over, we went do visit Catherine's goats. I told her that I didn't like the goat milk that I tried from Wal-Mart.(don't judge me, again!) She gave me some to try. She just milked her goat that morning. All I have to say is YYYYYUUUMMMMM!!!!!!!!It was wonderful!!!! Nothing like the Wal-Mart milk.(don't judge me) I should have known better.
Now after all of that, me and Hubby have decided to finally get us some goats. As soon as they are weaned, we are getting two doelings off of Catherine. So now, I can show pictures of MY goats. lol. Now here are some pictures of Catherine's goats. Just so you know, two of the small ones are mine. The dark one that she calls Mudd, is mine. I just have to pick out another one. I'm so excited!!!!! Okay, here are some pictures.
Okay, I just want to warn you, there will be more pictures of these cutes when they get to my home. So, you had better like pictures of goats. Lol!
So until next time,
Small Farm Girl, soon to be goat owner.(Don't judge me!)
