Two New Goats

The farm recently welcomed two new goats – Tilly and Tina. Tilly has a minty stripe down her nose and Tina has a patch that looks like a very fat ‘T’ on her forehead. They are Bagot goats, born early last spring; the Bagot is an interesting and endangered breed with records dating back to the 14th century in England. They are small and hardy, and very attractive. After a quarantine period in the animal house they will be let out into the paddocks to enjoy the extra space. There is a lot more information on the breed here.
