I Ran Across Some Cute Goats on the Way Back From a Showing.

After a showing today, I ran across some cute goats on the way back to the office.   (I didn't run over them, just stopped to see them).

My showing was in Waller, and on the way back to the office I saw these adorable goats.  The owner of Swede Farm, Tim, came out to greet me and tell me a little about the goats.


He has three varieties of goat, I remember one type is a nubian.

They are milked twice a day. 

black and white goat

Look at this cute one with the white stripe down his middle and above two of his hooves.

healthy goat

This healthy one is a nubian.  What a glossy coat.  I asked Tim what he fed the goats and he said one thing he feeds them is alfalfa.  He feeds them something else as well, but I can't remember what.

chocolate goat milk

These goats are for milk production only.  Here is a sample of the chocolate milk.  He sells the milk products at Houston Farmer's Markets.  You can go to his website and find out where and when.  Click here for the website for Swede Farm Dairy.

This goat seemed content to sit by the fence and watch me walk by. 


Here is an alpaca.  Tim even took this picture for me.  Thanks for the tour Tim.  I'm out of milk at home, I should have bought a gallon from you while I was there.  Maybe next time!!

Hi Liz - those goats are cute indeed.  I especially love the little black one with the white cummerbund and cuffs.

We raised goats when I was growing up and I just LOVE them.  We actually took a spontaneous drive to Texas to see some Angora goats one March when my Father was sick of our Canadian winter.  Great photos and I hope you go back and buy the goat milk - very good for you and great for cooking with!

This is so cute.  You know, the other day at breakfast, there was an advertisement on the television for buying goats to keep your lawn cut, instead of using a mower and all those gas fumes.

So cute, I was looking out my office window today and saw a squirrel eating peaches off my tree. Animals are interesting to watch.

I've been to Waller! My husband has three college roommates who were from Waller. I don't know why I really remember that except that I thought Waller was a funny name.

Jim told me you had some nice goats over here. I went looking for them in the ActiveRain Nature Station group but didn't find them, but here they are.
