BLT and Potato Chip Lobster Rolls with Peach Salsa.
Layla and Mara.
The names were all Asher’s choice…if it was up to me, I would have gone with completely unconventional names like Hermione and Granger…because well, I am a Harry Potter freak. Also, just putting this out there, when I do finally get a dog, his name will most definitely be Hedwig (the white owl in Harry Potter). It may seem weird, but I love that name and I desperately want a white husky, with a grey strip down its nose and blue eyes.
Anyway, just wanted to finally give you guys a boat load of photos of our cute, friendly goats. It’s safe to say we have definitely become attached to these little girls. They are so sweet and kind, AND I am semi excited for their milk. I say semi because I can’t let myself get too excited now. We have to mate them first, wait while they are pregnant, watch while they have and raise the babies, and THEN we can have milk – YAY!! The milk probably will not come until next summer since we are all just really busy right now, and caring for baby goats would just kind of be A LOT. So for now, we will just enjoy our little girls and let them do their job of eating the weeds. Next year we will focus on milk.
Oh, and if you’re looking for a fun day trip in CO, go check out Frog Belly Farm and meet Layla and Mara’s siblings and their lucky farm Mom, Heather!
OK, so here’s a boat load of goat photos. Enjoy!
OH – and happy Father’s Day to all the dad’s out there!! Hope you guys are having a great day!
So happy so see these babies. They are really precious. I’m only sorry that that the mountain lion killed several of them. I imagine it was really difficult to tell the children because they probably had a favorite or favored all of them. I’m an ardent animal lover and hate to see any harm or abuse that happens to any of God’s sweet creatures. Cherish them always.
Agreed! Thank you so much Linda! xTieghan
The pictures are nice and impressive.
Thank you so much!
Love the goats! Also, I named my cats Remus and Percy. 🙂 So happy to meet another Harry Potter freak.
Okay, well, this just set my strong desire to have some goats over the edge! If you ever need a “goat-sitter” I am just an hour away! 🙂
So sweet! I love goats 🙂 This is an awesome post and the pictures are great!
What adorable goats, when I first came to Italy my mother-in-law had goats, she made her own ricotta and goat cheese, it was all so delicious. Have fun!
Ps love the name for your dog, my youngest daughter called our dog Leone (she is a Courage the Cowardly dog big fan, Leone is the Italian translation).
Haha! Also being a HP fanatic, I totally get it that you have Hedwig all picked out in your head already. I have had an Irish wolfhound named Hagrid in my head for sometime, myself. It will probably never come to pass, because the Goldens I have now have me maxxed out, but a great giant of a beast with scraggly beard has been in my mind for years now. )
Warning, though, a husky’s shedding will put you over the top with amount of dog hair tumbleweeds you will have in the house!
Ok so these are SO CUTE. And I just looked at that farm and now totally want to go visit. <3
