{Goat Adventures}

I've been feeling a tad bit like Dr. Doolittle this past week. We've have  added two beautiful Nigerian Dwarf goat kids to our family. Meet the babies:

The human kids want to name them Star Wars and Hannah (after Avery's best friend). We are encouraging them to think a little harder on those titles. As of now they are affectionately referred to as 'the boy' and 'the girl'. We love them so much already; they are quirky and full of personality. I could sit in their pen and watch them play for hours!

Nigerian Dwarfs are a miniature breed of dairy goat. They are incredibly playful, social animals and usually bond easily with people. 

We eventually plan to breed the pair as they are not related. I also have grand plans for goat's milk soaps, lotions and lip balm as well as cheese and yogurt! The goat adventure begins. Stay tuned.
