We are excited to share that we welcomed two new residents to Doolittle Farm last night, Pan and Loki. They are Lamancha goats. Lamancha goats, bred primarily as dairy goats, have a distinctive appearance with their very short ears. They have a calm and personable temperament; they are very sweet and friendly. We’re not mixing them yet with the rest of the herd so that everyone can first get to know each other through the fence. Our goats, Hermes and ‘lil Zeus, went right up to them and were socializing with them, and kissing each other through the fence. Indeed these are social animals!
This is Pan. He’s a butterscotch color.
This is Loki with some stripe-y markings, and Pan again, below, eating hay.
May I kiss your horn?
Hermes welcomed the goats warmly.
‘lil Zeus is more of a people-goat, so he hung out with Aunt Ilene.
