I almost forgot to share the neatest thing

Discussion in 'Goat Frenzy' started by jdgray716, Jul 18, 2009.

  1. I come home the same way everyday and there is this herd of young Dairy cows and in the herd is this one black goat. I always felt sorry s/he did not have a friend. The other day, and this will blow your mind, I saw the darndest thing. This goat, knowing how goats love water, was following in line with the herd right thought the pond. That's right, :shocked: chest deep walking right though the pond like nothing. This goat thinks its a cow and I think that was so cool to see. I have put my camera in the car so if I catch it again I can take a picture. However, it was so cool to see and just remarkable to me. I have heard so many stories about goats HATING water and this goat was in it like a fish. Well, that was my story to share. HEHE Have a great weekend all. :thumb:

    A pic would be great! We all know how adaptable goats are to their surroundings, but this is really odd :greengrin:

    we live on a dairy farm and about 3 or 4 yrs ago my sister in law brought home a very big weather... Mind you all our cows are black and white and this goat was black and white too... and he lived with the cows.. he got mad when we tried to put him in with our goats to try and get some weight on him and give him his shots... but he would have nothing do with either idea and broke a gate and tried to tear out the fence so to save the pen and our goat he went back to live with the cows..

    it was quite the site to see him following them, eating with them, sleeping with them... we never did but often said it would be funny to take a picture of him and the cows and see if anyone could pick out of the picture, what was out of place..

    It is definitely....
    alot of work and dedication...that is for sure...but the milk ..is so good... :wink: :greengrin:
     
  17. I will milk goats before I do cows. HOWEVER, I wouldn't mind raising them and selling them as they get older. I think that is what is guy did. These were all a LOT smaller while back?

    more milk in cows .....LOL
     
  19. Plus, much better for you. You can make soap/lotion. It's sweeter, and I can have more goats then cows too. Plus I am only 5'8' so they are more my size. LOL :ROFL: :slapfloor:
