In a Rut
It is the time of year when all young minds turn to romance. In the last couple of weeks the smell around the buck pen has been gearing up to impress the lady goats. Notty has gone from a nice reasonable young goat to a googly eyed maniac. He stands on his stump and calls to the goats across the field...constantly. Notty needed a friend. Another buck to share his bachelor pad.
So I brought this home.
His name is Pepe. He is Cora Belle's nephew. His mother, Boxcar Betty, has been called the prettiest goat one judge had ever seen. Call me shallow but I just like him for his blue eyes.
Notty was very happy to see him after first mistaking him for a doe.
It was a rude welcome for the unsuspecting Pepe.
