Our new goats

goats Sept 13 3

So here they are! Our two goats. A nanny and her nanny kid. We took the land rover up to the Borders to collect them today. They are now installed in a temporary paddock on the main allotment. They are a bit nervous at the moment and it will take a few days for them to get used to us. As soon as they are settled and used to being handled by us, we will take them to some areas where the vegetation is a bit overgrown and needs cutting (or eating) back. This is the start of a new adventure for us. I am really looking forward to learning how to milk them, make cheese and yoghurt and working out how to use up all the milk!

Oh dear,now very worried as I would advise NEVER buy a milking goat with horns. Please be careful, they can do serious damage. Don't turn your back on children and horned goats. They may have lovely sweet tempers but you just never know what goats are thinking.
