Hellos from NY - PawPrintLiving - 04-28-2016

Have been stalking this forum for some time now and figure that I might as well introduce myself.  

I have been wanting goats for some time now, both to supply milk for the family and as a packing companion.  We often hike the woods with our dogs, but due to either small size or health issues (bad knees, bad hips) they really can't carry much between them.  After working on a goat dairy farm for a bit, I recently added a young wether and doeling to the family.  Has been almost a week since I brought them home and they are still acclimating to their new environment, but once they've settled in I plan to take them on many hikes. 

Don't have names for them yet, but here we are hanging out on a sunny day.  These two are such love bugs and practically stick to me like glue.

Anyways, thanks for having me and I can't wait to learn from all of you on this amazing forum Big Grin

Welcome to PackGoat Central! Your goats are beautiful (I love how that black and white one is lounging on the blanket there!). We hope you share lots of stories and photos of your adventures.

Whereabouts in NY are you from? I lived in western NY state (about an hour south of Buffalo) for a few years. It's a beautiful area.

Thanks for the welcomes Smile

I'm located on Long Island, closer to the east end. Hoping to move at some point in the near future to a more rural area, possibly VT or NH, as it's just getting too crowded here.

Both my kids are Alpine x Nubian, possibly with a little Saanen mixed in. It's amazing how different their personalities are, and I'll definitely be sharing more pics of them.

Alpine/Nubian crosses are the BEST!
