It’s been awhile since I’ve mentioned anything about our two Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Sven & Olaf. So, here’s a quick post about what they’ve been doing.
They don’t play a lot. But, they’re super cute when they jump and kick around. They are great buddies.
They don’t enjoy getting their hooves trimmed. And, I don’t really enjoy doing it. But it needs done, so we get it done. We don’t use anything other than hoof trimmers. Farm Girl usually feeds them grain to keep them entertained while I trim.
Our goats get a little orchard grass and grain once a day. Other than that they graze in the field.
I really need to set up something for them to rub against. For now they rub against the fence – which, I know is not ideal. Thankfully, they are light enough it doesn’t seem to cause a problem.
OUTSIDE THE FENCE
We do occasionally let them out of their fenced area. Sometimes we let them wander freely and sometimes we chain them. Either way, they’re only out for a couple hours while we’re outside working on other projects.
Unfortunately, Olaf did eat all the bark off an apple tree. I’m not too sure the tree will survive.
I JUST LOVE THEM
