Goat Thing of the Day: Nubians

Today we will meet Jimmy Friel’s herd of Nubians in rural northern California.

A year or two ago, they started with two mated does, Alona and Sorbonne.

Then the kids arrived.

    Beautiful Nubians!

  3. Oh they’re so sweet. I love their ears 🙂

    I’m sending my kids off to my sisters this June – I’ll make sure they get lots of goat pictures. Is it true that male goats pee on themselves to turn on the girls?

    1. Wha…??? ACK! I don’t think I’ve ever heard that. Not that’s not true, though – I have no idea. When it comes to goats, I’ll believe just about anything.

      And I look forward to any goat pics you send my way!

  5. Oh my God they are SO cute… I want one. Do you think they’d get along with 5 Yorkies and a Min-Pin/Chihuahua mix?

    Oh, the picture with the chicken should be a caption contest.

  7. Lady Fi says:

    Oh my – these pictures are just adorable!

  8. I particularly like the seam up the back where they can strip their pajamas off. Very natty.

  9. Very cute kids 😉

    A happy goat family. Those pics put a little spring in my step. I do love goats. Miss mine. (sigh) Wish we had pics of her (our Phoebe), but she lived back when I was a kid and cameras weren’t brought out to capture everything like they are today. If we’d known she’d pass so quickly, we surely would have.

    You get some of the greatest goat pictures! Love ’em.

  12. That chicken looks like the baby sitter!

  13. Jayne says:

    Nubians are my favorite! Someday I shall have two females and their names shall be Anastasia and Lilith.

    These nubians are very cute but not as cute as I am although I am a bit scraggly these days….
