    I am sitting here listening to the baby monitor I out in the barn for Ol'Thelma who is due to lamb. I went out tonight in the pouring rain because I heard odd noises. It was the goats snoring. :lol: Who knew.

    FYI...they also burp, pass gass, grunt, wheeze, whine, and sometimes 'baaah' in their sleep.

    One of our bucks has a horrible snoring problem! I've heard him on the monitor and he sounds just like DH...

    The snoring is one reason I don't sleep in the barn with my goats.

    Can you guess the others??

    I had one who, while pregnant, would almost purr - well it was more of a creaking noise but only when she was content. She doesn't make the noise at all now, I kinda miss it.
