Hi here from Springbrook, Ontario, Canada (north of Belleville). We own 8 acres in the countryside with a 150 year old victorian farmhouse we are renovating, A QH pony mare named Luna, 20 chickens, 5 dogs (Nacho, Quesa, Kitty, Peaches, and Ginny), 1 housecat (Accio), 4 feral barn/mouser cats (Spots, Smokey, Minerva, and Molly), 2 goats (Cissy and Hermione), and 3 ducks (Buff Orpington Ducks, still looking for names!) Our two girls are Pygmy or Pygmy X's (a lot of people have suggested they are Nigerian Dwarf/Pygmy Crosses because they're white, apparently Pygmies don't come in white white and their body type is more along the lines of a Nigerian Dwarf). We have never had goats before, so these two are our first! They are both fairly friendly, Hermione is a bit reserved and won't come readily up to us but has started to come around since coming home. Right now they live in a 12x12 chainlink dog run because I haven't had the time to start their goat house and fencing hasn't been started for them. I think this is an asset to me at least because I'm able to bond with them and get them into a reliable scheduale for feeding, and one on one time! We only moved into our house last year, and have been fencing in land and building like crazy ever since. Tomorrow I will be starting the blocks for their goat house which will be 6x6, insulated, and will be comfortable for those cold winter nights. They will also have a double fence line, 6 lines of electric with eventually a line of wood buck fencing to ensure they don't get into naughty business!! Those little monkey's already escape once since they came home. Hermione is about 6 months old, born in January 2009, and Cissy is coming up for 2 years in December.
