Crazy Goat Girl

Well, I don't really breed fish. But I'll tell you what I do breed, and I breed them with such a passion that most people think I'm crazy;

GOAT CRAZY!!

I love my goats, of which I have 3 girls (called does) who are pregnant. I mostly breed American Alpines, a standard sized breed; but I also currently have two Nigerian Dwarfs. I got one originally after I sold out most of my Alpine stock, turned out she was pregnant, so I kept her daughter. Now I breed the two for pet stock.

My big girl, Lissa, is due to kid early May, and based on her belly I'm hoping for twins! Goats have about a 5month gestation, so it's been a long wait for us! I'm also hoping for some girls to keep and increase our Alpine stock, but 3 breedings and 4 boys/0 girls means not much hope for the gender haha.

The two dwarves are due later. Pheobe, the original momma, is due mid to late May, and her daughter, Rosie, is due Early June, right around my birthday

Here are some pictures of the girls. We breed the Alpines for show and milk production, and the Nigerians are pet stock for new owners and local kids in 4H

I know, its an influx of pictures, but its only a thimble full of the large number I have. I'm always willing to talk and share more if anyone is interested Though of course, with the number of links here, no one will probably read this

I LOVE GOATS!

I used to work at a vet's office, and actually got to assist with a c-section on a momma goat. I was in charge of baby goat feeding until the mother was back on her feet. Most adorable baby animal ever. Hands down. The kids were just so adorably stubborn. They were obviously hungry, but it took me forever to convince them that the bottles had milk. Another time, I literally had to grab a goat by the horns to keep him still for a short procedure. He wasn't enthused in the least bit. Fun times.



Wystan -- Pastel DeltaT Male -- 3 gallon
Abel Magwitch -- Wild-type RT King Male -- 20-gallon divided
Unnamed -- Red Butterfly? HM Male -- 20-gallon divided



Loki -- American Eskimo Dog -- 8 years
Kiara -- "Domesticated" Feline -- 5 years
Horatio -- Hermit Crab -- 5 years?
