Sugar Has a New Friend

Her name is Spice Girl.  Vanessa & Faith wanted me to change Sugar to a boy name but I can’t do that.  I’m already in the habit of calling him “Sugar”.

He cried so much that I cruised Craig’s List to see if I could find Sugar a friend.  I got lucky and found someone selling a couple of 6 month old females and wether so we called and made arrangements to go see the goats he had for sale.

We looked them over and I really liked the way this little goat looked and since Sugar is a wether, we don’t have to worry about mating season, etc.  She’s from a Kiko sire.  Sugar is a Boer.  Don fixed up a cording across the back of his truck and secured Spice Girl and we brought her home with us.

She’s still wary of us and won’t eat from my hand yet.  I almost got her to come up to me a few days ago, but I’ve probably lost all the progress I had made.  It’s been raining again so the ground is slippery and I no longer go out there if it’s damp.  I’m tired of busting my derriere.  Don doesn’t want me to go out there either but he’s good about checking their feed & water for me.

Sugar eats treats from my hand now but he spits out the regular goat feed if I try to give it from my hand.  He eats it from the bucket though!  He absolutely love the licorice flavored goat treats.

So now, we have 2 goats and there are no plans to have more.  I think 2 is plenty!

  1. I am so happy that you got Sugar a friend. I am sure you will see a change in his attitude. He might still cry a little, but it won’t be constant. Looks like they are best buddies already. Have fun watching them. Goats have such interesting personalities!
