Who's Who

The lovely goaties all did the farm proud this year. 14 kids were born to 6 goats, but there were three losses. One was born breach and aspirated on the amniotic fluid. A board fell on another, killing the porr little girl and one twin died the first night with failure to thrive. The rest are growing and are beautiful. I have decided to sell two of the moms and keep some of the female kids instead. The moms are mostly Nigerian Dwarf, however, I am working towards a Pygmy herd. The little ones are all bred to a pure Pygmy buck. Most of the males are gone already, taken by petting zoos or families to bottle feed and raise as pets. The goats require intensive labour management, but they are so much fun!

Pygmy Goats

I bought two little pygmy goats that had been children's pets. What a great purchase! They are so tame that I let the female run around the yard with her little boar goat girlfriend. The billy lives with the sheep because he tries to breed everything in his path. The pigs that he cohabits with are female but they do not want much to do with him. There is another little billy, a boar cross, and two rams and two wether lambs that share the pasture there. The billy tries to breed each and every single one several times a day. They run when they see him coming. 

The little girl lost her first baby. I did not even see it. At the time she was due, she decided to go over to the pig's side of the pasture under the fence and the sow ate the baby. All I saw was the tell tale signs on the sow's face and a wet spot on the ground. I felt so sorry for the my little pygmy girl. I am sure she wondered what happened.

The sow was sold, and the billy jumped the fence and bred the female, Louise or Weezy as I like to call her. She is due any time now and I am much more careful. She is not with the sheep or pigs this time, just with her little boar doeling, Terry.

Pygmy goats are comical, jumping and talking all the time. Weezy follows me around the yard as I do chores and makes funny noises as she finds things she does not want to share with Terry, who is following Weezy. They are adorable and a great addition to the farm. I hope to have a herd of pygmy goats for milking and meat one day. Shhh, don't say that too loud or Weezy will hear.
