One animal that we had never given much thought to when it came to our homestead was goats. Growing up we had a goat, I don't recall her name nor her breed, what I do recall is how mean she was! As a child we couldn't go into the enclosure that she was staying in because it was a sure thing that she was going to head butt us and knock us to our knees or worse. So it was imprinted on me as a child that goats were unfriendly little devils. So, when a friend of ours said she would give us one of their baby goats when they had one born I was reluctant. We did some looking into it and did read up on a few benefits of having goats on the homestead, one of which was having goats to creating less work by eating down the fence lines. We of course also read about the uses for goats milk, soaps, lotion and drinking. We had no intention of having more than one goat so those uses weren't going to be for us. Ben was adamant that we would never have a male goat because of their smell. So we decided we would pick up the female that was a bottle baby. We brought her home and of course immediately fell in love with Stormy (grey/white). It wasn't long that I decided that I wouldn't mind having some little babies running around and we brought home a male, Lighting (white/grey). Ben was right there is a slight smell to a male goat but not enough in my opinion that anyone should be reluctant to get one on that factor alone. The breed we went with was a Nigerian Dwarf Pygmy Cross, they stay very small only reaching about the height of an adults knees. We then went on to add to brown babies with blue eyes we only have a picture of Peanut at this time. Then recently we added Cinnamon, Licorice, Fudge and Nutmeg. We have babies available about twice a year. Feel free to contact us to be added to the notification list for our babies.
