Due to some recent health problems, Karin (Grandma) and I have decided to shut the breeding operation of Grandpa's Little Farm down. We will be keeping Oreo, Brandy, Lucy and our latest wether, Danial as weed eaters, pets and 4H projects for our Grandson, Tycho. "Buddy, The Wonder Wether" will be going with Lilly to a farm in Belfair to take care of a serious blackberry out there. We may be bring two other of last year's kids back to the herd.....So all in all, goats will still be a very important part life here at Grandpa's Little Farm.

Lilly was a first freshener two years ago. She milked up to eight pounds a day her first year out, despite a problem with a congenitally defective teat. Last year she did not take and I did not try that hard to get her bred last year. Lilly is a grade nubian.
Lilly was bred to Jack and kidded March 17, 2013, with twin bucklings. Both bucklings are spoken for.
The all-black one is Darby and the other is Dublin. Darby is a certified "lap goat"- he will NOT tolerate it if he is not on Grandma's lap and scratched!! Dublin loves Grandma's lap too- gets jealous of Darby, but he wants down to jump and twirl in midair from time to time ;o) They are both excellent aerialists!
