3 weeks ago a friend of mine from church brought over two goats for us to bottle feed for him for 6 weeks.
[my sister-in-law asked me if there was any significance to the fact that it had been raining all week, our friend's name happens to be Noah, and he brought me 2 goats! I laughed out loud and said I don't know but I hope he doesn't bring any other pairs of animals to me because I don't have an ark...]
Though they are not sheep (my daughter's preferred farm animal) they will help her get a feel for what it is like owning a similar sized animal and whether she is up to the commitment long-term. She has nurtured the idea of becoming a shepherd since she was old enough to talk.
We had the impression that they would be bleating all night and keep us up every two hours eating. But they don't eat as often as we thought and were perfectly content to sleep when we put them in their pen.
My wife remarked that "owning goats is easier than owning a dog!"
