The truck climbing goats of Luana Farm

We have four goats: Chevre and Brie came to us a year and a half ago. The one thing the good book, “Barnyard in Your Backyard,” stated quite clearly was to be sure all fencing was in place before acquiring livestock – especially goats. I’m not sure exactly how it happened but that day in April we were standing there with two goats – who were quickly staking out the white pineapple patch – and not a stitch of fence. Indeed, that project is still in process. More later. In October of last year, Chevre made several new sounds – my son, Oliver, went to check it out – and reported that “Chevre was licking a small poodle under the house.” My daughter, Mia, went to see why her little brother couldn’t get this right and yelled back, “Get the book . . . Chevre is having another baby!” So we doubled our herd to 4. P.J (for pepper jack) is now an “it” and works well as a weed whip and Feta is a beautiful doe who is by far the favorite around here. I’ll share lots of goat stories. Plenty to tell . . . and the pictures – well, they are worth a thousand words.
