Girls On The Hill...Beautiful June Day

Sometimes we write about a little bit of nothing...

And Aleecia says, as she stretches her neck way out, "That fencepost sure tastes good!" She is quite the attraction, spots and all. A beautiful, big girl. Always the first to come see what I am up to, and "chat."



Now, take a gander at Anona, her twin sister. Aleecia has the same markings, only with white spots on top. Anona has the long ear-thing a'goin' on! Can you tell, I love my nubians?







I still get called Annie from time to time. I just smile. Annie was our first bottle baby. She is very independant, yet, she does not know that she lumbers in the exact spot she did while young, waiting for her bottle. Goofy gal!!!
They are are all entertaining, a lot of work, but I would not trade it for the world.

Yep, that sums it up. I sure love my goats, but they are a lot of work!

Here Here!! Always such a warm feeling of pride and contentment to see the girls all comfy, lazy and healthy!! Gotta love em for that! Seems the troubles of everything else are senseless and what I would give to be a goat of mine:)

I dearly love my goats but was somewhat naive about what a commitment that would be. Your girls are beautiful.

Aleecia would fit right in with my spotted sheep ( looks-wise )and she is beautiful. I always preferred the dashing and flashy Nubians, and I loved my Nubies. I think they are the most beautiful goats. I loved their personalities too, so in my face and mischievous. Miss them.

Oh Mary.... such sweet girls. I love how you love your goats and speak so lovingly about them. It just warms my heart and makes me envy you - in the best possible way, of course.

When you and I first met, I made the mistake of calling you Annie too. Remember? You were so adorable about correcting me. That's when I knew I loved ya.

Thank you so much for all your beautiful posts. When can I come help you work in the soap shop?

Annie's ears resemble leaves! In my sidebar is an old photo of me and my pet lamb, Annie, who I bottle fed. She was a pet all her life. (Sorry if I've told you this before.)

The long ears of the Nubians are quite amazing. They would really blow in the wind, I think. Lovely creatures, and friendly, it appears.

Alix, your title would be CSC. Chief soap crafter. Annie agrees. :)

Hands down, the nubians are the ones that bring love and fun to the job.

I have one that keeps escaping. I need a video camera. She is a small doe, too small for my liking, but beautiful. Each evening when I drive down to the barn she is standing outside of the gate. At that point she begins to follow me around. Like she is walking in high heels, those long slender legs, humming along behind me, but leave her alone and the hollering starts. Some of the nubians are needy-acting. They do not like to be left alone. It can be a pain in the rear, but I pretty much appreciate it. They are easier to handle in those cases. Livestock, a dairy animal, that also have to have attention. Goats are still pretty much a kept secret, especially the beautiful nubians.

Hi there. Just checking out your blog. I'm loving the photos of your goats! Where in SW Ohio are you located?? I grew up in Chillicothe. Someday I'll come back and make cheese. :) We have nubians here and I absolutely love working and playing with them. Where do you sell your soap?

Hello Arlene, nice to meet you. When I need to do serious shopping (Kohl's, Sears, and others), I head to Chillicothe. I do not go there often but I like that small town, with its benefits. I live about 45 minutes away, closer to Washington Courthouse and Hillsboro.
