Yes, we do!
It was a minor scramble today to get everything done, but we did get their pen ready while they waited patiently in the back of the old Ford.
We stuck to our budget and probably could have gone a bit under, but in the end, we probably saved these two girls from a potential demise. There were TONS of goats at the auction today. Easily ten times as many as there were last weekend. We didn’t get there early enough to go back to the pens to look at the goats ahead of time, but I think we still did an okay job. These girls aren’t lame and don’t appear to be sick.
The little horned one is quite scared of people, but with a little work I think we’ll be able to get her to come around.
The black and white one is a bit more socialized to humans and will let me approach without completely cornering her.
I rather like hearing their bleating on occasion. I think this is going to be a good experience for the whole family, and hopefully these girls will stick around for many years. Now we just need to come up with some names and also have the vet check them out and maybe give us some idea on approximate ages.
Buena and Toad weren’t quite sure what to make of the new additions.
And it sure will be interesting getting Buster and the goats acquainted since they weren’t too sure of each other when we were loading the goats up to bring them home. Buster was a bit excited, as most yellow labs can be!
