Billy-Bobs special visitor

This is Billy-Bob Thorton. He's starting to remind me of a goofy adolescent boy.

Our Buck has a special friend staying for a while. It’s a she, and you can probably guess why she’s here. Yup. Some nice folks that live fairly close to us were trying to get their little goat Sadie, bred. We saw the ad and thought why not. Billy-Bob has been really acting like the boss of the pen and even sometimes a jerk. When we had first got him, he was last in command to our two does. They pushed him around and he only ate when they were done. Now that he has come into full (buck-hood?) he is the one in charge. It would actually be nice for us if he were to have his own pen. Maybe that will happen later this summer.

Billy-Bob is a real people loving goat also.

Anyway, the folks dropped off Sadie, and what a sweet little goat she is. Sounds weird saying that but she really is  one of the nicest goats I’ve ever seen. She more of a loving companion dog than a hoofed farm animal. The kids don’t want to have to give her back. Where Sadie lives there are no other goats, but rather a horse and a few cows. It’s funny to watch, when we let her free range, she goes straight to Trip (our quaterhorse colt) and stands between his legs. It’s either hanging out between Trip’s legs, or right on following right behind the kids, everywhere they go. Really a great personality.

She's quite a bit smaller than our goats

She’ll be here for about a month or so and it’ll be fun to have her around. Hopefully she’ll be a mom-to-be where she leaves our little farm. Or, maybe her owners will just let us keep her:)
