Well, we've done it...we've become goat owners...or at least Jenna has!
Yesterday afternoon, we picked up her two Boer goat kids and brought them home to their new pen. When she got off the bus after school, she saw that the pen was no longer empty, dropped her violin and her backpack on the porch, and went running! Finally!
We've already learned a few things...
Goats can get out of almost any kind of pen if they so choose! Over and over again!
(thanks to Eric for some last minute pen-reinforcement!)
They eat sticks!
They love company!
They are irresistably cute!
The dogs are quite jealous...especially Murphy!
We've got LOTS more to learn. The goats are Jenna's 4-H project. She will be responsible for their care and training, and will show them at the West Lampeter Fair in late September. For now, though, we're just enjoying getting to know them and watching their amusing antics...
This is April...
...and this is Chuckles...
How could anyone resist those cute faces?!!
So...we are now not only married to the cows, but to the dogs, the chickens, the cats, and now the goats as well!
