Merry Christmas Emmi and AJ
Emmi has asked for a goat for Christmas for many months. I had her fooled that it would NOT happen. She was beyond excited when we told her to get in the van with DH to go get her goats! Above is Jennifer, 4 months. Below is Milly. They are Dwarf Nigerians. Emmi has big plans to milk Milly in the future.
We actually got them the week before Christmas, but as usual, I am behind.
The next day, Emmi stayed home with goats and DH. The rest of the kids went with me to get AJ's Nubian goat. AJ named his goat Billy. While everyone played with goats, I got to clean out the back of the van, after Billy was back there for 2 hours-----ewwwwww.
Both kids (children) stayed outside with their goats many hours for the next few days.
We thought we were "goat proof".....but didn't expect Jennifer to be so little, and able to slip through very small openings. SO the goats required babysitting, or being locked in a stall, until DH was off work to do some more "goat proofing".
