A Great Weekend, and Introducing I.E. the Circus Goat............
Today after getting our schooling done and eating a yummy lunch, The Youngun went outside to work with her wether I.E. Icing Ears or I.E. as we call him, is one of Tulip's triplet bucklings from last year. His brother Sam lives with my friend Rhonda of Faith Farm as one of her herd sires. You can see a picture of him here. The other buckling we lost due to a stone.
We are trying to decide if I.E. is headed for the freezer or to be The Youngun's pack goat. The only reason we are even considering him for the freezer is cuz he's got horns. He is one of the first kids I disbudded and his horn buds were too big when I tried doing it. All that happened is that he has no tips to his horns. Anywho, The Youngun is working with him and he's a natural!
He had a collar on as of last night, but it's disappeared......
He likes walking the ramp!
And he's a wonderful jumping goat!
He even enjoys walking the plank!
Working with goats is such fun! I couldn't imagine living without them. They are such wonderful, sweet, funny companions and we enjoy them so very much! Everybody needs a couple goats!
Till next time..............God Bless!
