Update on the new goats.
The three girl Goats are settling in just fine here at DrinkingStraws.Glass. The first couple of days we made sure to keep them inside the pen so they wouldn’t wonder off. A new place is always scary and we live in the woods and so they could easily get lost. I’m a worrier. Lol.
The other day we left them run free for a few and they did great! They didn’t wonder off and just were stoked to run free. When it was time for them to come inside they came in without a fight.
Another positive note is that they aren’t as scared of us anymore!! Now when we come to say “Hello” they greet us. (they also think we have a yummy treat for them, lol)
We did have a scare the other day though. They found the Rhododendron bush and decided to munch on it. Well, that will kill them if not treated in time. We were up until at least 1:30 am making sure Godiva was feeling better. All 5 goats ate some but only a few were sick, Godiva was the worst.
I, Kattie, decided to cut down all them bushes! Our goats will no longer be tempted to eat them! So now if we are up till 1 am it will be for another reason. :p
Love the farm life!!!
Good News! We talked with the lady who we are getting the goats from and in 3 days or less we will be getting our new goats. They will get to ride in the Subaru which is a treat for all goats. We get some crazy looks from people on the highway with goats in the back. They are always taking pictures. 🙂 Two of the goats that we are bringing back will be pregnant. Godiva and Dancer are their names. We look forward to having them in our home.
Oh in case you were wondering we are getting Saanen Goats 🙂
Oh how these kids have grown. They don’t look like this anymore, they are a whole lot fatter! They sure are some happy brothers. The older they get the funnier they are. Its a lot of fun to just watch them as they play around.
When it starts to get dark they know its time to come in and so thats when they come to the back door and decide to play. They come up the steps and make a lot of noise so we then open the door and then they go running! We shut the door and 2 minutes later they are back. Ready to do it again. It cracks me up. I can’t wait to have more!!
