I raised an orphaned goat last year to be my hiking pal with my dog. Actually it has worked out so well that I have started to take my goat, Sven, on little runs with me. He loves it and runs and bounces playfully along side me. He thinks it is a wonderful game to play. Catch the human!
Here is a shot of him going cross country skiing with me this winter:
Goats are so Cool! We had a couple when we lived out on the acreage. They were always following us around and jumping up to be hugged. I just adored them - and baby goats? They are a riot to watch - the baby miniature goat especially are just adorable - watching they play is so entertaining. They have such a ball!
