We welcomed two new additions to our home this week. These little beauties are sisters and are a Nubian/Toggenburg mix. Nubian goats are the ones with the adorable long floppy ears. Toggenburg goats have more erect ears. Since these are a mix, their ears are really long, but they stick almost straight out. Kind of like an airplane’s wings.
They’ll grow into full sized goats, and hopefully next year they’ll give us baby goats and lots of milk. We don’t have names for them yet. For now they’re sleeping in a pen in the garage (for safety), but during the day we let them out into a fenced in area put up just for them. They don’t like to be left outside alone though, so my middles have been spending lots of time out there with them.
