An early birthday present

Today I brought home 3 mini lamancha goats.  They're a cross between a lamancha and a nigerian dwarf.  The 2 eight month olds are sisters and the baby is just one week old.  Her name is Sprint.  After you see the video you'll see how I got that name.  Her mama is Flower and her aunt is Poppy.  Poppy is also expecting but I don't know when.  Both were unplanned pregnancies.  As you can see they have tiny little ears which they get from the lamancha side.  I'm hoping we get the dairy qualities of the lamancha and the size of the nigerian dwarf.  I will start milking Flower once a day in a few more weeks.

  1. Great video. I wish I could bounce around like that. Spirit is a good name for the new comer.

  2. They are adorable! Sprint runs like Ike does -- Ike can even bounce like that!
