Here you will find my girls. The does are all registered, bred to a registered buck and due to kid in late April 2010.
If you would like to buy a goat listed ‘for sale’, or place a hold on a 2010 kid, please contact me via e-mail for more information.
Chloe was one of my first goats and she has taught me so much. She gave birth to our farms’ first kid, a buckling named Fionn, and she taught me how to milk. She will always hold a special place on our farm and will be a lifetime resident.
There is a certain irony in Rose’s name. Of all my goats she is the most solidly built and a born leader. There is nothing ‘rose-like’ about her, and yet her name suits. I suspect she will give us some beautiful big babies in the spring. This will be her first kidding, and I have no doubt she will do a marvelous job.
My favorite goat of all. When I first went to buy my goats I was immediately drawn to Chloe and Rose, but Sasha didn’t really appeal to me. She wasn’t for sale then, so it really didn’t matter. Then, a year later I went to buy several more and Sasha was available. I was immediately drawn to her gentle disposition. I was warned she was a bit ‘sensitive’, but that didn’t stop me. She is very gentle and sweet. She is a wonderful milker and her first kidding produced three of the most lovely little does. Chloe and Sasha are sisters.
When I was looking for a few more goats at the beginning of the summer, I came across Cairan’s pictures on a friends site (this picture!). She was the cutest little black baby. I bought her on the spot.
This is one goat I loved at first sight. Unfortunately for me her owners felt the same way I did and wanted to keep her. As the summer progressed they decided to sell her and a few others, and I was first in line for Deirdre. There is something almost mournful about Dierdre’s eyes and she is an incredibly beautiful, uniquely colored goat. I am very grateful that I was able to add her to my herd.
Fionn (wether for sale)
Our first baby. This picture was taken ten minutes after his birth. This little boy is a cuddle bug. When he was small enough he would curl up in my lap and sleep while his mom browsed. I wish had more space so I could keep him. His birth taught me as much about goats as his mom (Chloe) did when she first came. The birth itself was amazing (I will post the video soon), then came the feeding, disbudding, and castrating. It’s amazing that he and I made it through all that at all! He will make someone a wonderful pet.
