I added three African Pygmy goats to my little farm yesterday! I still can't believe I did it but I've been wanting goats ever since I moved to the country and now I've finally taken the plunge. A black two-year old wether named Lucky Charm (goofy name, but apparently he nearly died at birth and then his mother rejected him and he had to be bottle raised, and nobody could believe he survived, hence the name...), a black two-year old doe named Trinket (L.C.'s sister) and a brown three-month old doeling who I need to name. She's just called "Brownie" for now, need to get to know her before I decide on a name (I just brought them home yesterday evening!!).

L.C. is super friendly and sweet and trusting -- the girls are a bit nervous but that's totally understandable, I'm sure they will settle in fine in a few days.
