Yard Goats

6 Nov

I still have my two little yard goats, Cupid and Quigley.  I don’t know what I’m going to do with them.

Cupid will probably always have swelling and pain in his joints.  I’m torn between selling him (like I should) and wethering him as a pet (because he was my bottle baby and is so dang sweet).

Quigley is still a bit thin.  He’s been wormed again because I’m pretty sure he picked up worms when the big boys were not being nice to him.  I’m considering keeping him long enough to breed to Reva and then selling him.



For now, they’re cute and sweet and yard goats.

    Some of them do just make decisions harder….

      It’s always those sweet boys! I know you can relate to that.

    They are both dolls! I just don’t need any boys!

    • Teresa November 6, 2013 at 2:12 pm #

      That’s the problem. All my little sweeties end up being boys. 😦

    Decisions like this R the worst kind. But, enjoy for now. Thanks for sharing.

      They’re cute and sweet while they’re here, even if the decisions drive me crazy.

    Cute little guys- it would be a hard decision.

    YES, they are cute… I’d be sorely tempted to just keep them as pets too! Thank you for coming by to share on Rurality Blog Hop #39!

      Especially my sweet little Cupid. Sadly, I know his joints cause him pain.

    Awwww…they are awfully sweet little boys! It would be tough to see them go.

    • Teresa November 6, 2013 at 3:28 pm #

      It’s always hard. But why is it ALWAYS the boys that are so sweet?

    oh dear, decisions like that are the very hardest! they are pretty cute….

    • Teresa November 6, 2013 at 3:52 pm #

      It’s really a horrible decision, but I have to think about the long term. 😛

  8. EG CameraGirl November 6, 2013 at 3:50 pm #

    Such a sad decision but for a while it’s wonderful that you can enjoy these two sweet guys.

    • Teresa November 6, 2013 at 3:53 pm #

      I will enjoy them as long as they stay here. 🙂 Cupid is especially sweet. Quigley is getting there.

    Think they are adorable , wish I. Loved near by I would have them

    • Teresa November 6, 2013 at 5:00 pm #

      They are easy to fall in love with.

  10. Alica November 6, 2013 at 6:12 pm #

    Oh, why do they have to be so cute! That little Cupid is adorable!! I think knowing he’s sick is part of what draws me to him!

    • Teresa November 6, 2013 at 6:13 pm #

      I know. That’s the strange thing. I know I should humanely sell him because of the illness, but he’s SOOOO sweet!

  11. sallyinwa November 6, 2013 at 7:20 pm #

    Awwww…they are so adorable! I’d have a hard time parting with them, too.

    • Teresa November 6, 2013 at 7:26 pm #

      They do not make it easy. 🙂

  12. VBR November 6, 2013 at 8:25 pm #

    My vote is to keep them as long as you can!

    • Teresa November 6, 2013 at 9:17 pm #

      Well, I’m not sure that is in Cupid’s best interest with the CAE.

    I’d take cupid, except I don’t have farm and I live in Canada. He’s such a sweetie.

    • Teresa November 7, 2013 at 6:39 am #

      He really is a sweet boy, but someone else taking him wouldn’t fix the joint problems.

    Best place for goats – yard!

    • Teresa November 7, 2013 at 6:40 am #

      THey would certainly agree with that!

  15. Pat November 7, 2013 at 7:02 am #

    They’re both adorable.

    • Teresa November 7, 2013 at 7:38 am #

      Yes, they are. It is kind of fun to look out the window and see them munching. They enjoy afternoon naps on the deck in the sunshine.

    What cutie they are! Hmmm, might be fun to have a couple of yard goats roaming about with my outside kitties… Ha!

    • Teresa November 7, 2013 at 6:47 pm #

      These two little ones in the yard are pretty easy. When you forty big ones in the yard, they can decimate a garden and trees in no time flat. 🙂

    Cupid and Quigley sure are cute! Love how their eyes match their coats!

    • Teresa November 7, 2013 at 5:17 pm #

      They do both have lovely dark eyes. 🙂

  18. Leovi November 7, 2013 at 4:34 pm #

    Wonderful photos, these goats are lovely!

    • Teresa November 7, 2013 at 5:18 pm #

      Thanks. They are sweeties, too.

  19. Sonnja November 13, 2013 at 2:26 pm #

    Beautiful goats photos!
    Greetings, RW & SK

    • Teresa November 13, 2013 at 2:27 pm #

      Thank you so much, Sonnja.

    Such cute goats!

    Keep ’em all!


    I guess that’s probably not very realistic…but still…

    Thanks for linking.

      I do wish I could keep them all. That’s just not in the cards when you farm though.
