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!
