They really are amazing! I love to sit and watch them. They LOVE cat food as a treat and most of ours will eat out of our hands. I love this time of year, as the males' tails are growing back in, and they are practicing displaying them in preparation for the next breeding season.

Thanks for visiting my site. The goats are currently babies, or I guess wild teenagers. Since Jed is a boy, we obviously don't milk him ;) but eventually once Lulu has a baby we'll be able to milk her for a bit, then she'll get a break and we'll need to freshen her again.

We're looking forward to that adventure...I'm just hoping they can hold off for a bit so that the baby comes after tax season! Currently Jed is VERY interested in beginning a family, or at least trying. Lulu seems offended by his attention though, so she's not there yet, which is good.

  I've always thought making my own soap would be fun, just don't know how!
I like the picture of your chickens :)

  Hey! Thanks for your comment! That is so neat that you make soap from tallow! Do you have to render it? We butcher a couple of animals a year so I would be very interested in learning how to use the by-products! I only use store bought veggetable oils right now. I'm not on ravelry yet but I've heard its really neat! I'll have to check it out.

  Hey, a fellow soapmaker! How neat! What kinds of soaps do you make? I am just begining and have made two batches of cold process goat milk soap. I am starting to learn to mill it now.
