I bought a goat…

I (Nathan) bought a goat today.

She’s a 3/4 alpine 1/4 nubian nanny, 1.5 years old, and had twins at her first kidding.

She’s still putting out about a quart of milk per day, but the guy I bought her from is pretty sure she has been bred again already.

So we could have anywhere from 1 to 4 goat kids somewhere around November.

I have to prepare a pen for her, and Taylor’s out of town with the truck, so I didn’t bring her home today (but bought her to secure the fantastic craigslist deal…$75!). I’ll be going to pick her up on Tuesday.

Pictures to follow.

Let the name suggestions begin.

    I guess “Nanny” is too obvious? But it sure is cute! And then I would suggest naming her something human. We like to do that with animals for the most part. So maybe Samathan, or Winifred, or Hillary? I wish I could meet her.
