Miniature Silky Fainting Goats
In March of 2014 we purchased 2 Miniature Silky Fainting Goats.
When most people get their income tax return back they buy cars, vacations, furniture, clothes, or whatever. Not our family, we bought 2 goats. The last of our pygmy goats passed away on New Years eve and we missed them very much. So we began to research different breeds of goats. We were fascinated with fainting goats. When we learned that there were some for sale just half an hour from us we went to take a look. It was a plus that they had long silky hair and were miniature, just 50 pounds. So we brought two pregnant females home with us Emma and Teardrop. In mid April they gave birth to Ace, Khloe and Samson. This was our first experience with goat kids and they were so cute we had a hard time leaving their pasture. The sounds they make is very much like a human baby calling mama. It has been a real joy watching them play and grow.
After purchasing these beautiful goats we joined the Miniature Silky Fainting Goat Association. They are a wonderful, friendly breed of goat and so much fun to watch. They would love for you to come and visit and share your animal crackers!
At two months males have to be seperated from the females as they can breed at that young age.

We have goats for sale. Two females Violet and Dottie for $600.00 each. Also our breeding male Boomer for $400.00, and two newly weaned males for $300.00 each. It is time to change out our male and we need to sell some others in order to do this.. My goal is to have about 10 goats in the herd, a manageable size.
We had some really bad storms here this summer. In each of our pastures the shade tarps were destroyed as well as a small storage barn.
This past week we were able to have two carports put up in the goat pastures for shade. The goats seem to really love them. We have four more needed and a new chicken house. We can only do a little bit at a time as finances will allow.
Joe and Stephen bought a new john deer tractor to assist in the demolition and rebuilding process. Joe says this is the first new tractor he has ever gotten and the first green one. I hope I can learn to operate it also.
