What are those little things that make our little hooved wonders so endearing? List anything you like about your goats... even those things that are annoying, but secretly you think are cute.

I love:

...how they always are excited to see me, always greet me eagerly at the gate, and always attempt to slip out when I'm trying to leave

...their little goat "kisses" when I sit on top of the rock with them.

...how they always slurp their water and smack their lips happily when they've finished drinking.

...when they completely spazz out and get really playful and bouncy. You can just see how happy they are

... when they greet you with a chorus of "come feed us!" in their goaty voices, and how I can tell who is calling me by the tone/sound of the 'baaa'

...when you refill their hay racks and they stand munching the hay without wasting much... especially when you bought it for a good price

...how they can make themselves look so innocent, cute, and so curious, then you turn your back and they manage to get into a heap of trouble!

...how fuzzy they are in the winter

...how they run and hide behind my legs when something startles them

... how they manage to be so devoted to you, but at the same time find a way to defy all the rules

... and of course their... goatiness... you know, their essential selves

Okay, that's all I've got for now (without really starting to ramble anyway) so what are those things that make raising goats so rewarding?

Wow, so many good things to say about goats :stars:

I too love how they are so different and all have their own way of getting you to do things for them.

Eliya, you're making me jealous! I'd love to have bouncy kids! But my fat and sassy boys will do :wink:

Reading this it makes me want to go fighting my way through the snow in the pitch dark right now to visit the boys... but not enough to actually go out! It's freezing lol!

And debpnigerians, what a sweet story! Your goats must really trust you! That's another thing I love, how, once you gain their trust, they just KNOW that you're going to take care of them and will follow you anywhere.

Oh yes :roll: and they're completely shameless as well, so as they're fighting with all their might to fulfil their selfish desires they are so cocky. You can tell they are feeling good about themselves! LOL

I also love when their bellies are full after grazing for a few hours in the mid afternoon in summer, so the sun is slanting and making everything warm and comfortable. They've been munching on lush grass and they come and plop down right next to you (or on you). That's incredibly relaxing. Maybe I'm thinking about that since right now I can't even see anything green outside- too much snow!
