These goats really work. I use the milk for cheese and soap, and other things. I milk by hand and expect lots of good tasting milk and nice manners on the stanchion.

Love Hate Relationship?

This is Blackberry, a registered blue-eyed Nigerian Dwarf with his tormentor, Ethel the goose. On sunny, lazy days while he's lounging, he loves her. She grooms his little white "bangs" and ears...but eventually she takes her job a little too seriously and gets pretty rough. He tries to get away, she follows, eventually he runs and hides!

That is so funny!! Poor little guy. Don't you just love his personality?

oh ya! He is so funny. Watching that gooe and him together is better than anything on TV. I don't know if she seems him as a mate, or someone to "mother". It's hard to tell!
