Polly the goat

Our neighbours left us an usual gift when they moved - a goat! Here it is.. a goat named Polly!

She will have plenty of food to eat when tethered, and already has a moveable shelter. D is enjoying looking after her and keeping her company. He was up early this morning with a bucket of hay for her to eat! He's put some dry hay inside her shelter too, to make it a bit more comfortable for her. We tried to feed her a carrot but she didn't know what it was!

Will you go for goat babies? They are very cute, but goat is good eating too once they grow up.

Hi Charlotte
Not sure as yet. Still getting used to the fact we have a goat since it happened so suddenly!
We will be looking for another goat to keep her company. Whether that will be another doe or a buck I'm not sure.
We've eaten (wild) goat before. I must say I wasn't a big fan, but I guess it depends on the age of the goat and how it's cooked.
Hope all's well with you :-)
