The Goats

Believe it or not, we started with just four goats in 2015! If you have ever had goats, you know how addictive they are – and how demanding they are! The goats really run the farm.  Their schedule is our schedule, especially at kidding time. Each has their own personality and they provide so much happiness and laughter around here!

  • Ma has been on the farm longer than we have! She definitely is the queen of the pasture and keeps everyone in check. All that responsibility makes her rather aloof and quiet, but ever watchful. We think Ma is grooming Mona to take her place when she retires. Ma likes treats, but she never seems over eager to take them.  That wouldn’t be cool for her station. Her weakness is lip balm. Just a dab on her lips.

    Vicki, and her twin brother Vincent, were the first kids born at Goat House Farm. Vicki is crazy for animal crackers and she can smell them a mile away. She is gentle girl who likes to daydream about pastures full of sunflowers.

    Oreo also came with the farm. She was Ma’s little kid in the summer of 2015. She is a bit shy, but will always come for treats! She especially likes the leaves off the citrus trees.

    Cake is the farm dinner bell. She is also the dining supervisor and ensures meals are served on time.  She probably starts counting the minutes down from breakfast.

    From the moment Vixen was born she had a special kind of elegance about her. Her black cowl, pink nose, and petite frame makes her the belle of the ball everywhere she goes.

  • Daisy Mae came with the farm and was the shyest goat around! Now, she likes soft massages and really loves peanut hay.  She is the zen goat – she has all the wisdom of the world in her eyes.

    Mona is so quiet that we sometimes call her the invisible goat. She is a lot like her mom and, no doubt, she knows lots of secrets!  Mona thinks the grass is always greener on the other side. She is famous for getting her head stuck in fences to reach it.

    Petunia is Huck’s twin sister and she is very attached to her brother. She will follow him everywhere and likes to sleep curled up next to him. Petunia is incredibly sweet and likes to stare at trees.

    Lilly Mae is already, like her mother, an introspective little girl. Right now, her favorite past time is slipping out of the nursery to play on the stumps with the big goats.  She simply doesn’t realize she is just a baby!

    Hannah was on her way to auction when she found a home at the farm. She lives for food and really loves bananas. We are convinced she is plotting to take over the world – when she isn’t eating, which is probably why she hasn’t gotten very far.

    Violet is a triplet (Scooby and Lollie) with her own individual personality. She likes to slip through gates and doors when no one is looking. She also loves long naps in cuddly arms. When you come to visit, Violet will be one of the first to greet you!

    Lollie was supposed to a girl, but in the early morning we didn’t look very carefully. He got his name because he thinks faces are just giant lollipops.  Lollie is thrilled to be the model for our farm logo!

    ``I'm so cute they made a logo of me.``
  • Velma and Daphne are proof of the loving bond between sisters. They are always together and cry if one wanders too far away from the other.  Petite girls, despite their voracious appetite, they look so delicate! Velma loves to pose for the camera and Daphne likes to play chase!

    When Ava came to us, with her son Antony, she cowered in the corner and was afraid of everything. Now, all she wants is some love and attention (and hay). Though she comes from a good dairy line, apparently no one told her she is supposed to be a milk goat.

    Call Me Ava (Ava)

    ``Really? Someone told you I was a milk goat??``
  • Delilah showed up at our door when one day when her previous family thought she wasn’t “a good fit” for them.  She was a house goat and now she is learning how to be a real goat.  We can’t imagine sweet Delilah not fitting in any where. She is not only simply adorable, but her eyes melt hearts.

    ``I think I am getting this whole goat thing.``
  • Penny is the most gentle of our does.  She lives for massages and will actually fall asleep standing right up if you pet her for a while.  Like all goats, she loves to eat, but we are pretty sure she will take hugs over treats any day!

    ``I just need a hug.``

    Aspen is as sweet as she can be. She is incredibly patient with milking and chats a lot.  We sure wish we knew what she was saying!  Aspen loves her peanut hay and alfalfa pellets. She is really beautiful and reminds us of an antelope in her grace and lovely horns.

    Huck loves everyone. He is a wether, but he doesn’t know it. Huck always wants attention and especially likes cheek rubs. He is sensitive and likes long walks in the pasture and naps in the barn.

    Big Boy is timid like his mother. He is very close to his mom and usually stays by her side (probably because Daisy has always been a helicopter mom). He grew up with his very best friend, Boots.

    We think Van is the most handsome goat in the world. He is tall, dark, and crazy good looking, yet he is humble and sweet. Van loves anything with wheels – wheelbarrows and wagons and trucks!

    Scooby is full of energy and loves to climb everything, especially human legs to reach snacks. Scooby likes to go on adventures with his siblings, but is a momma’s boy at heart.

    Bootsie is our special boy. When he was little he liked to stand out in the pasture all by himself, but now is more social and his best friend Big Boy keeps him company.  Together, they like to climb logs and watch the chickens.  Bootsie is a sucker for bananas.

THE Hog

  • When he was a little guy (he really was, once), Houdini’s castration went bad and he was probably headed for the market.  John, one of our workcampers, fell in love with him, so we had to bring him home.  He spends his days testing all the fences, cleaning the pasture of acorns, and lounging in his wallow. He drives Jo crazy because he breaks the fences, but we love him anyway!
