Meet Marshal




And Milly!



They are the two sweetest goats ever! I'm sorry I'm so late posting pictures, but I spent all day yesterday making a new, better stall for them, and then I couldn't type from a finger injury (I hit it with a sledgehammer while trying to pound a t-post in... Very lucky it wasn't broken.)

Anyway, made them a wonderful stall twice as big as their old, makeshift one, and much airier and more fun. They have room to run in it, and I even put a huge tractor tire in their stall so they could jump and run and climb (I pulled both my wrists moving that tire. They'd better like it!)

We're working on a run next, and doing our best to train them to not bite or jump up on people. Marshal's a handful, he does both and is hell-bent on escaping his pen so he can follow me everywhere. I might have to reinforce it.

I won't be on often the next few days because of the immense amount of work I have to do. Just thought I'd post those pictures everyone wanted. :)

They are soooo pretty! Congratulations :)

BUT...why are you putting T-posts in with a sledgehammer? Isn't there someone you can borrow a T-post driver from? It makes it SOOOO much easier and much more safe.

Sounds like you're doing a lot for them. I'd love to see pictures of everything when it's done :)

Yes, find a T-post driver, they are much safer and easier to use than a sledge hammer.

You know we really will want to see pics of everything. ;)

Love the saanen....I have a Snubian (Saanen x Nub) that looks a lot like that, only her ears are at half-mast.
