Today we visited Sequoia's friend Sara, and her new Dwarf Nigerian goats. These are the breed of goats i am hoping to eventually get and i was really eager to see them. They are considered miniature dairy goats, producing up to 2 quarts of milk a day despite their tiny size!
They are absolutely adorable and the kids love them!

Sequoia and Sarah trying to pet the goats, Sage not quite sure yet.

This is the male i believe his name is Cosmos. How can you not love a face like that?

This is the female, i don't remember her name. :( She was very tiny and sweet. She is full grown, and smaller than my beagle, Sampson.

Sage adored the gaots and chased them all over the yard yelling, "kiss, kiss goats!"

She also really loved Hamburger, the cow. He's still a calf, and very sweet. He kept liking the top of her head. She had a long conversation with him, about his ears and tail and nose. We had a good time watching the chickens, chasing the goats around and talking to the cow. Sarah's family is planning to get a couple Alpaca in the future. We can't wait to come back and see them!
