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!
