A blog about the day to day life and happenings on an 80 acre goat farm in Kansas called Shiloh Prairie Farm. News and information on goats and farm life also!
I love that photo. Thank you so much for my morning laugh!
Nice looking boys!! Lov ethe goat in the background with all the color!!
Hahahahaha! How funny! Well, today is the Summer Solstice and the flames of the Sun God are burning wild, so go for it "Young Bucks" you might get lucky!
The udder isn't the only big whoa in the photo!
heh, heh. Those bucks are somethin' aren't they. Are they as oderliscious as our bucks?
Alix, you are too much! But you are right: "WHOA"! lol
LOL. Those bucks are only about 4 months old or so. No wonder male goats only have one thing on their mind!
Woah!!! Do you drink that milk?! I'm not even sure I knew goats had big udders! it looks like a cow's!
That is so priceless and funny. Just gave me a much needed laugh!!!
Thank you for visiting my blog. I enjoyed reading yours this afternoon. Before we lost our farm, we raised boer goats. The day we had to sell 'my babies' was one of the hardest.Take Care,Debbie
Hi Future Mama,Yes we do drink goat milk. The fresh milk we get from our goats is good. It doesn't taste much different than whole cows milk, we think it is better. However I have heard the canned goat milk you buy in the store is not good. Yes, goats, especially dairy goats can have pretty large udders. In fact for their size, pound for pound good dairy does are more efficient milk producers than cows. In that picture however the female goats are on the other side of the fence. I think what you are seeing is the scrotum/testicles on the two "young bucks" looking at the female goats on the other side of the fence. Don't worry, the very first time I ever saw an intact male goat I was a little surprised at the size of that part of the male goat anatomy. ;-) Which explains why buck goats can be such a pain to deal with during breeding season. They only have ONE thing on their mind..female goats! Thanks barefoot! Just sharing the laughs these goats give me every day!
Goat Creek Grandma - I am sorry to hear you had to sell your goats. I can't imagine how hard that was. They sure are easy to get attached to with their personality and funny antics. Thanks for visiting my blog!
Ha Ha! The 'boys' on the boys are a bit eye popping when you see them for the first time. Great photo!
Hahahaha, cute post!And I agree with Alix. Whoa!
Man, I was a little confused myself about who was who in this picture. Yikes! So...do they still do a lot of jumping around with those things...just...swinging around?? Seems like it should be awfully uncomfortable.I'm glad I learned a little something about boy goats; if I'm ever lucky enough to get my own goats someday I'll be sure to let someone else raise the stud for my herd!
I saw some big udders this weekend at the dairy goat show. Wow, after my dwarf Nigerians, those standard-sized goats have BIG udders.
Ha ha! Those boys seem pretty well endowed them selves!And the does say, back at you, boys.....
I did not know male goats were so... well built so to speak! Like little bulls, I guess that is why the saying goes "randy as a billy goat"!
those are cute pics! my deer have big bags but not that big!
LMAO, this is just too cute. :)
Your goats are cuties!
