Here's our loud and loving friends!
THE GOATS




Here is Greg with his goat Star. He's the real reason we got started into goats. Uhh huhh SURE. Well OK maybe not, but he is the reason we have Toggenburgs.


This is Star.



We started out with just Star (Austin if you ask my son). She was a "HAVE to HAVE" buy. NO not really impulsive, well OK you caught me, it was, but I have owed goats in the past so I know what I was in for. Star was my "baby" for the first few days I owned her. To the point of the only time she was quiet was if I would leave the front door open and let her sleep on the porch. She was fine with that unless I got out of sight. She finally settled in, an grew well at her goatsitters while my husband and I moved. OF course they spoiled her rotten! She thinks that to reach a tasty berry just out of her reach, you should pick her up!! Oh well, she is happy and health and the BOSS of all the other goats.

Right about now you are wondering OK but WHAT IS SHE??? She's black with a white "star" and has no ears!! She a pygmy llmancha. She is 1/8 llmancha and the rest pure pygmy. Now I COULD have had her registered, but the people she came from didn't keep up any of their paperwork. Not sure what trouble those lacking ears would have given me, but hey she's just a pet anyway, who cares about all that stuffy paperwork!


This is Yama Farms Sissy.

The second goat to our growing population. (however I did promise it would stop here untill we had a bigger place for them) She is a registered PYGORA. This breed started with a cross of a pygmy and an angora. She will be sheared soon, should have already been done in this picture, but time has slipped away. She is a pretty pale chocolate red color. I can't wait to shear her so I can spin it up.

My husband is responsible for Sissy. He fell in love at first sight with her in Oregon. We were up there on a trip with my mother in law to a fiber festival. Sissy rode home in the back of the van all the way to our house. She was the perfect riding companion, hardly a peep once we left the fairgrounds. Thanks to Chris Utterback for parting with her!!



The Toggenburgs

Thought we'd forgotten them didn't you?


The kid, the human one, is an uprising showman. Greg started out showing in June with Tink, who we didn't yet own. Now she was just a month old, and "just his size". In August he went in to the ring with Peaches. She was 6 months old, and not quite his size, but he had a wonderful judge who helped him a lot. Luckily, thanks to that judge, Greg still wants to show goats. Peaches is a wonderful goat, but Greg was a little short! So for now, Peaches will be shown by his mom, and he will show Tink. Many, Many thanks to All the Robertsons at Elk * Mountian * Farm. They have gone over and above to get Greg started with Toggs.

Tink, the show veteran, shows like a dream, and will remain Greg's show goat untill she kids in the spring of 2003. (YOU think that's a long time away, try explaining it to a 6 year old!)

Peaches on the other hand, is Mom's, for now. She's very stubborn, and will be a real challange to show. She also will be held over until the fall of 2002 for breeding. She made size, however I have to travel to have them bred, might as well take them at the same time.


These two Toggenburgs are the start of Greg's show string. Both are spoiled rotten, and I can't wait to get the commic pictures as he tries to show them for the first time.

Comming Soon!
