I live on a small farm with my family and we own boer and angora cross goats. We used to own just angora goats and before that we had cashmere goats.
Our goats had babies a few weeks ago. Their names are Spot, Dot, Little Star, Pip, Smudge and Rose. They all have brown heads and white bodies, but different markings and personalities.
It is now October and Giddy has been born. Sadly 2 weeks later we found him in the river, drowned. ='( so sad.
Boer goats are meat goats and brown, white and smooth whereas angora goats are fleece goats and are white and curly. The boers are stronger and cope better in bad weather. They both sound the same and eat pretty much the same food.
I love watching them bouncing around their favourite place: the hill. They all like to nibble. Their favourite things to nibble are shoes, feet and fists but Rose’s is my trousers. Their bite is unforgettable because of their little sharp teeth.
Did you know cashmeres are also fleece goats?
If you own a farm what animals do you have? Would you like a goat for a pet and why?
