Beautiful Spotted Things

We visited two other farms yesterday to see their goats, and get ideas from their goat operation.
The first farm had 70-80 kids born in February and March.
Oh my goodness!
The blur of movement.
Both farms were dairy oriented and had Nubian goats as part of their stock, and I love the distinctly spotted ones. These were a little more subtle but beautiful.
The sire to the first farm's spots is "Gorgeous George".
Couldn't you take a couple of these home?
Remember, you can't have just one.
They are herd animals.
They would be so lonely unless you had another companion for them.
As we were leaving the first farm, I spotted this feather.I think its from the guinea hens that work clean-up there.
I'm totally fascinated by its colors and transparency.

Oh my gosh, those spotted goats are ADORABLE! I wouldn't mind having one or maybe two...
