Meet My Goats
On April 18, 2015, my family and I got three new additions to our family farm, JNRfarms, three kids (baby goats)! The breed of all three are Alpine; we chose this breed for a couple of reasons. For one, they produce great milk. The milk tastes great and tastes practically the same as cow’s milk, with only a slight after-taste, that you really have to look for. As a small farm that is continuing to grow, we want goat’s milk that tastes good so we can sell it, and make other products with it, like cheese, because expanding not only what animals we have but also what products we have available will help us grow our farm. Secondly, they have one of the nicest coloring out of all the different goat breeds, at least, we thought so! And, their ears were also a deciding factor because they make them even more adorable and cute! Simply, we fell in love with the Alpine breed for multiple reasons, so we just had to go with this breed.
Now it’s time for the official introduction to our goats. My goat is named May. Her hair is mostly white with some black in it. She is oldest of our goats, although only by a day, being born on March 29th of this year, making her, along with the rest almost three months old. She is friendly, curious, and sweet but watch out because she loves to nibble on your clothes!
Next there is Josie, my sister Rachel’s goat. Her hair color is a mixture of dark brown and black. She was born on March 30th of this year; she is also curious and friendly but is definitely the most easy-going of our goats and loves to give kisses. But don’t turn your back on her because she will nibble you! She loves to eat too (and practically never stops!) and has been joked about a little because she has gotten a little chubby lately…
Last but not least there is Chloe which is everyone’s goat. She is practically all black with only a little white on her. She was born on March 30th of this year and is Josie’s sister; May is a half-sister to Josie and Chloe since they all share the same father. She is the most dainty and gentle of our goats but is a great jumper. And whenever family or friends come and see the goats, Chloe is usually the favorite. Sorry Josie and May…
Well, there is the official introduction to the new additions to my family’s farm.

Don’t worry Maggie…we still love you too!!!
These are beautiful goats. I like the coloring. Each one is very
unique. I am sure you will enjoy them. They will be work, but they will be interesting as well. They are growing so fast.
