Our little farm is growing with new critters. We picked up 3 goats last week. 2 Lamancha Nigerian cross does, and a Nigerian buckling. The two girls should be pretty decent milk producers, and the little buckling we will use to breed them once they’re bigger. The does are named Lucy (kids pick all the names of our animals and it was kind of named after seeing Lucinda Williams and the Calgary Folk Fest the weekend before) Sweetie (cause she’s the meanest of them) and our buckling is Billy Bob Thorton. Not sure why he got that name but I may have had some input. It just seemed fitting.
After getting them my father in law came over and we put up a fence, made it hot and then started on getting a shelter built. Here’s a video of some of the process and the almost finished project. Happy goat days ahead!
