Baby Goats Galore!


Back in the Spring one of my favourite places to visit, Windmill Hill City Farm, became home to some new born baby goats! I saw the news on their facebook page and got very excited, as I really really really love goats. Really. A lot. It scares people. Goats are just so cute, friendly and funny, and they have a lot of character. 
I made a visit to the farm as soon as I could, which was less than a week after the kids (the proper name for baby goats) were born. They were still very tiny and seemed to be spending a lot of their time sleeping. You can tell how small they were from the fact one of them was sitting in the feed bowl! Their floppy ears and tiny faces were adorable.



A couple of weeks later I went back, and by now the baby goats were hopping about in a field. They looked very happy. Don't they look like they're hugging in the picture?


Look at that cute little hoof! They were friendly and inquisitive and came over to the gate to investigate the humans.


They seemed very interested in their environment too, with a lot of licking and chewing things! Not that different from human babies really.


After all the hopping and running about they were hungry.


After a while they seemed to get tired and all lay down in a heap, which looked very sweet and picturesque. 

Since I took these pictures the goats have grown quite a lot, and I have seen photos of them with tiny little horns growing! I will be going back to the farm again soon so I will be sure to document their progress.

  3. What adorable kids!
    My family had two goats when I was growing up, and they definitely had their own personalities. One had hayfever (can you imagine!) and we had to crush up tablets to put in her food every Spring.

    1. That's hilarious! I didn't know goats could get hayfever. Hopefully I will own goats one day! xx

  4. Ever since I got chased by a goat when I was visiting a zoo in France as a child, I've always been a little scared of goats. They always look so innocent but I've seen their bad side haha. Still cute all the same!

    1. Oh dear! I think the worst experience I've had of goats was when some tried to eat my hair...
