A Great Goat Surprise

A few weeks ago, Tim went to CT to pick up Helena from her brother's goat farm.  He picked up Helena and two new goats to add to the Journey’s End family! Katy-goat and Rainbow-goat rode the whole way to J.E. in the backseat of the car, with one stop at a rest area for a stretch break (which must have been quite a sight for passersby.)

Katy is a Nubian, mostly brown and black with floppy ears. She gives us rich, sweet milk… as long as we distract her with feed and treats from the garden. Rainbow is a Saanen, not yet a year old, small and white and full of mischief. Mick is having a little trouble sharing his hay and sleeping quarters, but we think he’s secretly happy to have two new companions. They are full of personality and we can’t wait for you to meet them!

  KATY LIKES TO PUT HER HEAD THROUGH THE FENCE AND HATES TO STAY STILL TO HAVE HER PHOTO TAKEN.

 Mick isn't sure what to make of the two young ladies in his pen with him but he doesn't mind getting in on all the attention we show them.

 Rainbow loves the attention but don't let that fool you-- she's probably about to try something!
