Goats

Goats

"Goat Life" is a different kind of living. Dedicated goat owners forgo sleep during kidding season to feed newborn goats every few hours for the first days of their lives. For the better part of the year, milk is an everyday chore, no matter the weather or personal circumstances.  

The joy goats bring to the homestead comes with a heavy workload.

Early Morning Goat Kids on the Homestead

A nasty winter storm morning with the day-old kids as they learn to use their legs. I am getting ready for the day, making coffee, Ronnie's lunch for work, and getting milk bottles ready for the kid's breakfast while Ronnie is still in bed.
