Crazy Angora Goats. Crazy Busy Life.

12 May

So I’ve done a really crummy job of keeping up with the blog lately. We’ve been busy working around here on the garden, yard, planting flowers, tending to baby critters, the list goes on and on. The wind keeps blowing. I have FOUR days of work left before my freedom begins and in a week I’ll be headed to Utah for the AAAE (American Association for Agriculture Education) National Conference! Lots has been going on around here and I’ll be busy the next few days trying to catch you up! In the meantime… let’s start with the Angora goats. These girls have the FUNNIEST personalities around. All goats have great personalities but these particular goats are seriously overflowing!!! Check it out-

First of all they got a pet rooster. This was not expected. Since so many of the chicks I hatched turned out to be roosters and we haven’t had time to do anything with them I just started booting them out of the coop. I had to give the poor hens a break. This particular one flew into the angora pen and has decided it’s his new home. Anywhere they go, he goes too.

I wasn’t sure how they would all get along but I think the rooster thinks he’s a goat now. He jumps right in there at the feeder and everything!

This is Dolly. She always MUST be in the middle of anything that is going on. So when we had to build a shelter in the pen next door she of course had to figure out how to stick her nose into things. Literally. If she could have crawled all the way through that hole so she could butt into progress, she would have.

    Dolly is adorable. The rooster with the goats is really cute. Hey, make friends where you find them, right?!

    I love it! I am a New Mexican at heart (I attended ENMU and graduated from State), but live in Houston now. I will definitely be looking to your blog for inspiration. I would love Angora goats one day, but I must get a place big enough for them first. Happy for you!

      Angoras are awesome. They have the funniest personalities and are so smart! We bred our two to Nigerian Dwarf bucks this winter and are expecting Nigora babies in May! They will definitely be on the blog. We’ll also be doing our first shearing this spring so should be interesting!
