The goats are houses with ram lambs to help provide some warmth in the barn. The more bodies the warmer the barn and sheep tend to stay a lot warmer than goats because of their heavy wool coats. They all snuggle together in their round barn for the night.
Not this year, but the next, the Nygora doelings will be big enough to breed and they should start to produce some goats with coloured fleeces. They will remain small though. Pippin is the largest of the doelings, but Sofi is not far behind her. Tommy and Timmy are tiny bucklings.
Goats are really intersting creatures, but not the easiest animals to keep healthy. They are highly susceptible to worms and many have started to become resistant to chemcial wormers. They do not like grass, but will eat it if there is nothing else. What they really love are weeds and leaves. They will completely deforest all they can reach if they are allowed in a bush. Last summer, they went into the fenced part of the bush and completely demolished the caragana shrubs that were heavily populated there. I am hoping the other part of the bush will be fenced off for them this year. Would I recommend keeping goats for pets? You bet! Come and visit them sometimes.
