After school yesterday we took a trip to visit my sister. She raises Nigerian Dwarf goats and has a bunch of babies right now…
including his new cousin, Gracie Ann. She was full of smiles!
This has to be the smallest baby goat EVER! One of my sister’s doe’s had quads and this little girl was the smallest at just over a pound at birth. Her sisters were all over 2 pounds – still tiny in my mind! She had to be tube fed at first and couldn’t stand, but is doing really well now.
Look at how small she is compared to the bottle!
Bentley was more than happy to clean her up. He was very doting – such a sweet boy.
Next, we headed outside and found this HUGE chicken. He is a Jersey Giant rooster.
Here he is with his buddy the Buff Orpinton rooster – such pretty boys.
While we were talking about the chickens, my son had wandered off to check out other things and he came running over saying that he saw a bobcat! We both knew that he was talking about her cat, who from a distance does resemble a bobcat.
We had fun finding the ‘bobcat’ :)
He couldn’t believe how big he was.
We finished our visit by seeing the rest of the babies.
So cute :)
He got to feed two of them.
My sister pulls some of the babies off, so that she can milk the doe for personal consumption.
A great visit on a beautiful day!
