Last September we sold our Nubian herd in hopes of being able to travel a bit. One trip to Kentucky solved the travel problem, and now we're buying goats again. Nigerian Dwarf this time around. Meet BillyBob, the first of our new goat family. He's 8 weeks old. He'll be a lot happier when we find him a girlfriend, as he's all alone out there for now. Hope to find a doeling within a day or two.

The trip to Kentucky was enough to break us of the habit. Now my wife is looking for goats on Craigslist to keep me from booking more trips.

Didn't want to choose the Caribbean instead of Kentucky? Lol.

I am not a travel person. Sure, with goats it makes it super difficult -- but anything more than a weekend away and I'm ready to be back home.

We have had a dog and a cat in our household long before goats -- travel has never been easy, and never will be. That's just life with animals.

We just put down a deposit on two ND doelings, 4 weeks old. Guess BillyBob will be lonely for another couple of weeks.

We have friends in Kentucky that we wanted to visit, so we hauled the camper up there. That was the crux of the problem. Bad road, bad campsite, heavy rain and overflowing dump station combined to make it a memorable (if not so enjoyable) trip.

He’s a cutie! Kentucky is on my bucket list I hope you enjoyed it. We have horses dog and goats and we love to take small trips no longer then a few days. I have a gal who babysit for me when my girls were growing up and she grew up on a farm. She stays here and takes care of our animals and is very trustworthy. She is worth it! She even washed her bedding and makes the bed when she leaves. She’s priceless to us :)

Is there a Northeast Texas chapter of Goat Owners Anonymous? I need to find one and join quickly. After putting down a deposit on two doelings yesterday for pickup in two weeks, I was bothered by BillyBob's crying. That prompted me to start looking for an adult doe I could put out there to keep him company. Long story short, I bought TWO adult does because the owner wouldn't separate them. So in two weeks I'll have FOUR does and a buck.

Uh oh:ahh: If your wife is anything like me she'll be on craigslist everyday looking at goats.(rofl) I've had two sleepless nights worried:sick:about 2 little pygmy does I found. I called and these two little sisters were available but, I was too ashamed to tell hubby I wanted them. I called this morning and there was no answer:eek:mg:. I pray that they're gone.(rofl)
