This is what the Aday farm will be like in 5 years. note all the trees are gone and the pen has had an increase in goats.
I had a good time reading about goats and all the different kinds since Fleta has gone into the goat business.
I thought the pygmy goat was just a pet goat but I found people are cross breeding them with the Boer goats which are noted for their muscle build and used for meat.
So why you might ask as I did why are they crossing this big heavy goat with these little goats?
It seems some people decided since people didn't eat the leg of goat they needn't be so long.
Another point in favor of the cross is the pygmy goat is that the small goat comes into season or heat 3 times a year instead of the bigger goats once a year this would be a plus in producing young.
The Boer goat is usually white with a brown or black head and neck after I read that I realized one of Fleta's pygmy goats was a cross with the Boer goat since one had the white body and dark head.
Do you suppose Hannah will agree to butchering the pygmy goat? I don't think so.
Clayton called and ask if I had more goats here. He said he saw Kelly go down with the trailer and thought I guess Kelly is bringing his horses back. Later he went out side and saw a goat trimming his rose bush. He called Fleta and learned there were 5 rose bush trimmers in his further.
today I am going to see the doctor.
Helen called and ask has Fleta's got goats? She said I can never tell if something is a joke or not on your blog. I said Fleta has the same problem!
