Weanlings

Every Spring I fall head over heels in love with a new batch of kids...and each year I sadly say goodbye to them as they head to new homes. This year is no exception. It looks as if our kids have all found new homes with the exception of one buckling. We still have plenty of people contacting us for goats, so chances are he will find a home also.This buckling, unfortunately, has found a home. He is one of our favorites. Becky calls him Kramer, because he is so tall and goofy. Jack calls him "Lambchop" because he looks a little more like a sheep than a goat. Kramer is larger than the rest of our kids and his ears are very long...hanging down instead of sticking up. He has one black horn and one white horn. He is incredibly friendly and will jump around on his hind legs like a dog when you visit his pen. One of his favorite games is to jump from rooftop to rooftop of the goat houses in their pen...his feet never touching the ground.


I suppose if we kept each goat that was a "favorite", we would never sell any goats and eventually would be over-run with them. So, sadly, we will say goodbye to our babies and look forward to more in the future.

I love all the pictures of the animals. So many great pictures. Your farm is gorgeous. And you are one very busy lady.

I know how it goes with saying goodbye to animals. We sell our Llamas and it is very hard to see them go. I spend alot of time with each of them so I get really attached. But they are off to a good home who is in need of a guard animal. So as hard as it is to say goodbye I do know they will have a good home. Best wishes, Dawn
