Richie is building us a goat hut...we can feed them from inside of the hut...when we finish the roof they can eat on rainy days better...only one problem.... the little babies want to hide under the hut now!


This is Big Ned... We sold him Summer get a new bloodline...since we kept a lot of the does born this year to build our herd.   Ol' Ned loved to jump fences...He could jump 6-8 feet from a standing leap....He's a Kiko.

Little Mable was not doing well so Richie took her to work with him.  The girls all tried to feed her and make her last day a good one.  Sometimes a mom will not feed a little goat because she somehow knows something is wrong.  Her brother, Buck is doing well but we lost Mable on May 15th.
