Meet Pongo!

In keeping with our storybook/movie character names for our goat herd, meet Pongo! 101 Dalmations ring any bells?!  Meg thought of it and we all agreed it was perfect!
Our neighbor, Mr. Jerry, who lives right down the street has 6 does(females) and 1 buck(adult male). All of Mr. Jerry's goats come from a local goat dairy farm, Split Creek.  They are known for their milk and milk products at that farm.  We took a tour to Split Creek last summer here.  We had inquired about buying some of their goats but they wanted $300 per goat!  Pretty fair for a pure breed, come to find out.  All of Mr. Jerry's goats are Nigerians and they all had babies in January...15 total!  I'd say we are BLESSED since Mr. Jerry gave us Pongo for FREE!!   Now we have a billy, from a good milking stock, to mate our does!
 Checking out the newcomer...

Isn't he a cutie!?!  We are thrilled and love to see our farm expand yet again :)
