Toodles! (For Now)

Hey people. I'm going to be gone at 4-H camp for the next few days. The goats will be fine with my brother, Marnax.

See everybody soon, Tayet and the goats.

Fudge's Horns

When we got Fudge the lady we got him from botched up disbudding him, his horns are lopsided and ever night I go out to the pasture they are bleeding. My dad thinks it might be a new horn coming in. I think he might be play fighting with Lily and that breaks the scab open. Any advice from old, wise goats out there?

The Addictive Leaves

These are the Addictive Leaves, if you see your goat with these, it's to late...

This is Lily eating the Addictive Leaves. I shudder to think of what would happen if the supply was cut off... They aren't really bad for any goat. These are just the leaves they love the most.

The Weird Goats on This Weird Farm

I know what he is thinking about...What he's always thinking about... Girls.
Wendy kept looking off into the distance. I wonder what she's thinking about...
Fudge decided to get a tan, but him being part mini Nubian, he did not understand when I tried to explain that he already has a tan.
Uhura is a very weird goat. She has more then enough grass in the pasture, yet she continues to reach outside the pen to get grass and other yummys.

The Escape of Prancer, Peter and Jaimy

Normally pigs and goats don't like each other. Here is a little story you should hear before you make your final decision...

One day Prancer and Peter and Jaimy were in their pen locked up, they heard Arnie the Pig snuffling around outside their pen. Prancer and Peter immediately started screaming: "LET US OUT!! LET US OUT!! LET US OUT!!" Jaimy, the cool-headed one, started shouting over the other kids: ARNIE!!! LET US OUT!!! YOU CAN OPEN THE DOOR!!! Arnie grunted, it sounded a bit like:"Why should I?" "Because then we can smell the fresh air an-... AAAHHHGGG!!!!!!!!! PRANCER THAT STINKS!!!!!!!!!! Arnie I'm begging you, Prancer just bit the cheese, you gotta let us ouuut!!!!!!!!!!" They could hear Arnie sigh, "Fine I'll let you out if *I* can have some cheese too." He could hear snickers from in the pen. "Okay,you can have some cheese... But I'm warning you, it might be Limburger..." Arnie wondered what Limburger was, but oh well, cheese was cheese wasn't it? He snuffled around the door, then pushed the table saw away from the door. The kids then stood on their hind legs pushed the door over and stepped out. Arnie smelled something *really* bad, "There's your cheese Arnie!" shouted Prancer. And with that, they ran out of the barn. Arnie felt conned, "That was not cheese.", he thought, "I will think on it." He went and found a nice patch of sun and took a nap. When he woke up it was just a faint memory. The kids kept smiling at him so they must be friends... right?

In a Goats Shoes

This blog will be posted on by my entire family. I am 11 years old & a have a growing goat farm. So far I have 12 goats, Girls: Uhura, Wendy, Zoey, Zelda, Gold, Silver, and Lilly. Boys: Tinkerbell, (What can I say? He looked like a Tinky.) Prancer, Peter, Jaimy, and Fudge. Uhura, Wendy, Zoey and Zelda are purebred Pygmy Goats. Tinkerbell is a purebred LaMancha. Lily and Jaimy are Wendy's kids, they are half LaMancha, half Pygmy. Prancer and Peter are the same except Uhura is the mother. Gold and Silver and Zoey and Zelda have never had kids. Fudge is a Mini Nubian LaMancha. I just got him a couple of days ago to breed Zoey and Zelda with. I am probably selling Prancer and Peter on Sunday. More pics tomorrow!

The pic is of Lily, She is the sweetest little doe ever.
