Today at work, a friend said I should add some video of the goat kids to our site. This year we are doing things a little different with the goat kids: we are planning to raise them all as bottle babies. We have chosen to do this because we have always found the bottle baby kids to be so much easier to handle and more docile as they grow up. So, Sawyer Farm’s Milky Way and Sawyer Farm’s Caramel who were born on Monday, are living in a dog crate in the office. It’s not that they couldn’t live in the barn, but rather, Anna likes the convenience of not going out to the barn in the middle of the night to give them bottles.
Of course, goats that live inside, get to wander around the house for exercise. It has become a routine that they follow the people into the kitchen to get their bottles. They love to run and hop around. Unfortunately, all the antics were complete by the time I started the video and both kids were getting down to the business of drinking milk.
