pixie + penelope

Allow me to introduce the newest additions to our little farm, Penelope and Pixie!

Penelope in the foreground, Pixie in the back.
Aren't they cute?!  They are Nigerian Dwarf goats.  Cute, cute, cute!!  I think they're somewhere around 3-4 months old. My mother-in-law, Shirley, had quite a few kids this year, so she gave/traded me these two.  

Notice, they do not have horns.  No more devil goats with horns on this farm, no sir!

What fascinates me the most, besides their miniature adorableness, is how different these two are.  Pixie is always getting out of their pen - little escape artist - while Penelope is content to stay inside.  And since they're both a bit wild, there is no way I can catch Pixie once she's out.  But that's okay, since she also knows how to get back in. :wink:


Starting this weekend we'll be hitting the road and heading to several different Bluegrass festivals in the area.  The Panhandle Polecats have a busy July schedule!  I'm looking forward to hanging out with Hank's family and hearing some awesome music!

What do you think of my dwarf goats?
What are some of your summer plans?
I want to know!
