Pet Goat Facts and Tips

Are you thinking about getting a goat? Here are some interesting facts you might not know about our friends who were once known as “the poor man’s cow.”
If there were wisdom in beards, all goats would be prophets.
The myth that goats eat anything, from tin cans to noxious weeds is false. In fact, goats are notoriously persnickety.
  • Worldwide more people drink goat milk than any other variety.
  • Goats belong to the genus Capra, an offshoot of the cattle family, and like cows, camels, and giraffes, they are ruminants, which means they are cud chewing and hoofed.
  • The Egyptians worshiped goats and the Greeks sacrificed them, making them “scape-goats” that took on the sins of the community.
  • During the Middle Ages, Christians feared that goats were Satan’s associates because of their cloven hooves and their lecherous ways when in heat.
  • In the traditional zodiac, the sign of Capricorn, represented by the goat, is noted for creativity.
  • In Latin, the word for goat, capre gives us capricious for “lighthearted,” or “impulsive.”
  • Many have found goats to be charming, whimsical, endearing, and quite possibly the precursor to the dog being “man’s best friend.”

Goats as Pets

  • Goats hate to get wet and need protection from the cold. Plan to keep the stalls clean and draft-free.
  • Well-fed, content goats with good fencing stay contained. If they’re being poorly fed and poorly fenced they will find a way out.
  • Goats need a balanced grain nutrition. They should be fed from two to six times a day for high-yield production.
  • Anything spoiled or soiled repels them.
  • Trimming hooves, dehorning, castrating, shots, grooming equipment, feed, and fencing are chores and expenses required for keeping goats.

Saturday morning:

Thought it was going to be a decent day....


Had snow squalls ALL day!

Sunday WAS sunny, but a wee bit chilly:

The gang stayed out in the yard for a couple of hours just enjoing
the wonderful sunshine!

When they finally wandered back to the pen, they got a spaghetti treat!

Maybe they think it's worms???

Friday Night Steam

A SUPER big H/T to Terry for sending this great video!

We're off to Russia tonight to see the Russian Class L in action!

The Soviet locomotive class L (Russian: Л) was a Soviet main freight steam locomotive type. They were nicknamed "Swan"

Description The L class 2-10-0 was the first Russian locomotive to use Boxpok-type wheels, which were commonplace in steam locomotive design post-World War II. A casing between the dome and chimney covered a steam drier pipe.

History It was designed and built by the Kolomna Locomotive Works shortly after World War II under supervision by L.C. Lebedyanski. It was originally designated Class P (for Pobyeda, "victory"), but was redesignated Class L in honor of its designer.
In conjunction with the FD class 2-10-2, it was primarily used to haul mainline goods across the terrain of the Soviet Union. Over 5,200 L class locomotives were constructed from 1945-1955, and they operated with the Soviet Railways until 1975.

Went shopping in Pennsylvania yesterday with my neighbor and her visiting 92 year young Mom. She ran us both ragged!

When we came home I let the gang out for a while to get some sunshine.

Maude's feathers ARE getting longer:

Betty caught a worm!

Charlies new neck feathers:

One of the girls (probably Betty) was picking at them - there was some blood on his neck.

The leaves are gone:
