Goat Thing: Kids and Genetically Modified Goats

Tracy DeVore, of The Pie Belle blog, had kids recently. Goat kids, of course.

P.S. Tracy makes a mean pie crust (and teaches classes in Plymouth, CA) and you may want to check out her recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheese Balls. No, I’m not kidding.

Spider Goats

I don’t know if this provides as much controversy as that whole Monsanto seed thing, but BBC news is referring to  “genetically modified” goats at Utah State University in one of their recent stories.

The transplanted gene means the goat produces milk containing an extra protein, which is extracted and spun into spider silk thread.

Watch the goat spider video at the BBC.

  3. Hmmm.. I can’t decide if “genetically modified” goats are cool or creepy.

    If that man came near me with spider genes I would butt him into the next country.

    Congrats on the new kids. They are very normal and non spidery

    I’ve thought I’d seen ’bout every kinda farm critter there was but I’ve never even heard of a ‘spider goat’.  Sound like some kinda super hero wall climbin’ goatie.

    Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheese Balls….’just kill me now!!!  I know this is somethin’ I’ve gotta try just to say I did.  I’m freaky like that!  heeehehehehe

    God bless ya and have a fantabulous weekend sweetie!!! :o)

  6. Spider goats — a wee bit freaky. Can their milk still be consumed by humans?

    And chocolate chip cookie dough cheese balls??? I must see these. I think the the only thing that could make them sound better is adding bacon.
