My poor hubby. This week, I want goats.
I know just where I can get some, too.
My friend, Jen, raises Boer goat and trains horses for a living.
Thursday, another friend and I went to Jen's ranch to borrow a pair of hoof snips.
A couple times a year, her place is swarming with babies.
All but two went off to the sale barn over the summer. They stayed behind because they were surprise babies that were born much later than the others.
Goats are quite athletic and crafty when it comes to getting out of fences and pens. Boer goats also get pretty large.
Despite their size, they still love to snuggle and be scratched. They'd have climbed right up in our laps if we'd have gone in the pen.
Most of Jen's does are very friendly.
Maybe I should have these two girls instead?
They should be delivering cutie babies before Thanksgiving.
Then I'd have cutie babies all my own, plus friendly mommas.
What more could a girl want.........besides donkeys and a barn and a fence?
