Baby Buttercup

Our sweet neighbor, Jane,  knows that we want to get some goats. She bought a little baby goat this week and invited us to come over and play with her. We had so much fun, and we just can't wait to get our own goats!

Her goat house is immaculate, and Jane is organized and efficient. I know when the time comes, I will have  a lot to learn from her. 

She has two baby goats, so the milk is all going to them. She put the milk right into the bottles she was going to feed them with. 

And Cosmo, licking his lips, anxiously awaits. 

And then guzzles two bottles down in less than a minute.

Then it was the baby's turn to feed the baby.
Madelyn just couldn't get enough of Buttercup.

Isn't she just the cutest little thing?

Thank you Jane!

We have one older goat named Daisy. She is part pet and part lawnmower! She is one of the family.... love her. Good luck on your goat journey.

Ah! I grew up with Nubian goats; I miss those floppy ears! They make awesome dairy goats, and have the highest butterfat content in their milk compared to other breeds. Your neighbor has the right idea hand-raising her kids; those tend to be the easiest to handle milkers.

They have to be the cutest little things I've ever seen. I too would love to see a picture of the goat house.
