Harley Farms

We went on a tour at Harley Dairy Goat Farm today. While we were waiting for the tour to start I found this sign that spoke about the The Goats. If you enlarge it you will be able to read it.

This is the first baby goat we came across. She was very sweet and wanted to suckle on Sid's knuckle.

We got to go out into the fields and hang with the goats. They come right over to you wanting to be pet just like a dog.

These are American Alpine goats. They come in many different colorings. Some have long hair all over, others, like this gal, has a patch of long hair along her spine and hind quarters.

Sid wishing he had a tractor.

They have 3 Llamas to protect the goats. They will spit in a Mountain Lion's eyes and kick it until it leaves.

Another pretty goat. Number 26 to be exact. Most of the goats don't have names.

The farm has about 220 milking does. They love to climb. Here is a pair on top of the chicken tractor.

Everyone got a shot at milking a goat. It was really easy. Sid was a pro his first try.
