HURRAY!! AN OBERHASLI!!! Oh I am SO excited for you, Jenna! :D :D :D Obers are such a sweet tempered breed, and are really good milkers. Can't wait to see pictures tomorrow!

Congrats Bonita on your new friend! Sorry but I won't let the girls watch you on your walk about. They might get ideas and it would be hard to walk 3 and their babies.

Yes, yeah for Bonita! What a gal too, strolling along with you. Two goats are even better than one...or three...loved my goats when I had them. I just used/bartered the milk, but now I can't wait to have goats again for the cheese too. Why did I never consider the cheese pre-discovering Cold Antler?!

Wow, I never knew goats could be trained to walk on a leash. Awesome! Can't wait to see your new arrival, when she comes. Welcome to the herd, Francie!

Wow, that turned out to be Tanner's 2nd favorite YouTube video ever. (Tanner is a dog, btw.) His favorite ever was about kittens--he loves babies. And apparently, he also loves goats! He could see the screen from the back door, and he cried to be let in as soon as he saw Bonita. So I played the whole video again for him. Congrats, Jenna, you have the Tanner seal of approval!

Goats have such a strong herd instinct that they'll follow you anywhere. I take my goats on walks of my property all the time and have never trained them to follow me. I open the gate and they're right behind. They're easier to walk with than any dog I've ever had!

Yet another way to connect with animals. My "Little Woman" decided to get Dwarf Nigerian goats a couple years back. Her first goat "Dusty" a ten month old nannie. I would take her with the dogs on our morning walks. Used a collar and long line. Where I could catch her up if need be. She is so manageable and easy to milk now. Which my lady turns in to cheese and soap.

I have to second Anton. We like to take ours out sometimes on property walks, and never leash them. They love it, and always stay close by us and close together. (I would certainly leash them if we were walking the road like you are, though.) They really do want to go wherever you go!
