Family portraits


The lovely doe with a chain on her neck is Snickers' twin sister. We were up at the home of our neighbors and I took a picture to compare their sizes. Snick is definitely larger (bucks should be) and he lives a very different life. As a milk goat she is kept in a pen and fed only hay and grain - not mistreated at all not saying that - but Snickers runs in the pastures and eats weird plants. Of course he also stays scratched up and clobbered from his more rough existence but you can surely see the resemblance in Nubians - the other 3 are bucks born to a different doe. Just for those who are interested in the goatishness around Buhlaland. Later - I need to get busy - more work than daylight this week!

Such neat looking animals. Do the ears feel as soft as they look?

They look so nice!

Yes their ears feel velvety - very soft and warm - often covered with whatever they are getting into especially water! Thanks for dropping by Katie - I appreciate your comments and visits.
