Goats,Goats Everywhere!


My husband arrived with this on the back of our truck and the horse trailer filled to capacity 2 days ago...
The babies and one ewe with a injured leg on the truck and the big goats in the trailer.



                                                             The babies are so sweet......


Can you tell that this little one is bottle fed???



Just off loaded into the shed...Their owner sold them as he is retiring and due to health problems neglected them a bit and offered them to Cules for a very fair price!


Going out this morning.....



Err,yes those are Cules' gumboots drying on the fence. 87 Boer Goats on the place all of a sudden....They will all be kept for breeding purposes except for the little males.....which will be sold off. The riding school is now closed until mid January and I am starting work on our endurance horses and schooling 3 youngsters!

  2. That is a herd of goats. The last pic of all of them out in the pasture is great. Looks like the rains have really greened things up.

  4. Oh, they are in heaven now!!! Look at that greenery all for them! Glad you're getting a bit of a break from outside work stuff as it sure sounds like you have plenty to do on your own place!

    (Did you ever get a package from me? Just wondering if it ever made it thru customs!) :)
