Ever wonder what some of the terms you hear mean...we did.  Some are obvious, others not so much.  Below are a few of those we have learned...

  • Contrary to what you may have heard and read....goats do NOT eat tin cans, old tires...
  • Goats need good hay, good feed, browse, Clean and dry shelter, safe fencing, hoof trimming, basic medical care, and regular worming. Worms are a goats worst enemy.
  • Female Goats are called DOES
  • Male Goats are called BUCKS
  • Baby goats are called KIDS
  • Male goats that have been "fixed" are called WETHERS
  • Wethers make great pets and companions for other goats
  • Goats are herd animals and do best as pairs or larger groups
  • WATTLES - A fleshy, wrinkled, often brightly colored fold of skin hanging from the neck or throat, characteristic of certain birds, such as chickens or turkeys, and some lizards (and GOATS!)
  • Kids born with no horns are POLLED
  • More to come...
