We have finally done it, we have goats and they are unfeasibly gorgeous. May I introduce our three Golden Guernsey goats:
Iggy (the older goat on the left – Ziggy is on the right)
Iggy was born last year and we will breed her this winter. Ziggy and Zed are sister and brother and were born this year. Zed is a wether (a castrated male). We will breed Ziggy next year.
James thought of the names – really, don’t laugh his alternative was x, y and z. And don’t even ask what he has called our Large Black gilts. Bonus points if you guess why the wether is called Zed. As soon as he asked me, I knew. And I also knew just then that despite the fact we are very different people (well duh….) we are obviously meant to be together. For a clue check the notes at the end ……
N.B. Zed’s dead baby. Zed’s dead ……..
N.B. I apologise in advance if I become a bit of a goat bore here.
N.B. James is besotted with them, but he has to share!
