Bailey was #1 for 12 years, the herd matriarch and
resident loveable curmudgeon. She left us on
Mother's Day 2011...her daughters will carry on in
Babs is Bailey's daughter and is now the oldest.
She's designated herself one of the leaders of the
herd, heading up the procession to the orchard on
days the goats go out to browse.
Sultra would like you to know that she's the boss.
Responsible for keeping everyone calm and orderly
after milking, she can be a bit outspoken and we
love her for that. She has a beautiful beard and a
serious look in her eyes.
Dottie is the most colorful goat, with an assertive
personality. Falyn follows in her mama Bailey's
hoofprints. Greta and Gracie are twins, and they
love to snuggle. Gypsy is another of Bailey's
daughters. Pointe is graceful and quiet, and
maintains a businesslike attitude when she comes
into the milking parlor.
Haley, Hannah, Hedy, Helga, Hexa, and Hope are
collectively referred to as "the H's." These six does
were all born in 2008. Hope is a shy lady, owing to
the fact that she stayed with her mama longer than
goat kids normally do, resulting in a nervousness
around people and a preference for caprine
company. Hedy is stubborn, and we jokingly call her
"the witch" because she's afraid of brooms. Helga
has an elegant little beard.
Jenna, Juno, Juniper and Justine are our 2010
yearlings and will be bred this fall. We have high
hopes for them. These little goats are extra friendly
and love to give kisses. Sometimes, if they really
like you, they will burp in your face.
Last fall four alpine goats joined our family.
Snickers and Dorie, the "Alpine supermodels," are
show goats who came from the Wisconsin state
fair. Dorie is the loudest goat, and in fact she
sounds like a cow. Midnight (the ninja) and
Duchess, joined us by way of a local goat farm.
