The Keepers

6 Sep

I’ve tried.  I swear I’ve tried to get Joy to like me, but I admit defeat.


I blame her wild, wild, dad, Xerxes.


She’s so wild, I can’t even catch her to wean her so that I can milk her maa.


That means, she’s been moved to my not keeping you because I’m tired of goats I can’t work with list.


Maybe I should keep Vinnie’s last daughter instead.  Venus is nice.

I am still planning on keeping Bubbles.  She is friendly and easy to work with.


I am also still planning on keeping Moira.  She’s not quite a friendly, but I can pet her and she will hopefully continue to tame down.

She likes food, so that is a plus.

I’m also thinking that I might keep Penelope.

She is another sweet, sweet girl who is cute.

After getting the copper capsule, she’s really looking good now.

    I had a doe I eventually called Nona. It was short for No Name. She was just not one to be handled enough to learn her personality enough for her to earn a suitable name. She was a great mom and not mean, but I ended up selling her with her kids because I knew I’d only get aggravated and hold it against her when I couldn’t catch her to rework or vaccinate. 😦

    I’m sorry you have to sell Joy. I know how much you wanted to keep her. It must be really rough. Otherwise, I really like your choices.

    Your choices are excellent. Venus is beautiful and being easy to work with is a big plus. I cannot imagine having to wrestle with a goat every time to give meds, etc. Please don’t feel badly. You’ve tried your best!
