I came home from a ladies’ meeting Saturday afternoon and was greeted by the newest member of our little farm.
Meet the mighty Samson. He is one week old.
He is a full-blooded Saanen – a breed we’ve been wanting due to their high milk production. Stephen found a local farm that was selling the males at an amazing price, so while I was gone, he went and bought this little guy. The two dark spots on his head are where they disbudded his horns (I believe the process is similar to cauterizing).
He is the friendliest little goat, and absolutely loves people. He follows Stephen around like a little puppy. I teased Stephen, telling him that Samson thinks he’s “Maaaaaammy” LOL! He really does though, but that’s because Stephen’s been the one to bottlefeed him every time.
Isn’t he a cutie?
Now we just need to find a female Saanen. . .
