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