A 2 yo LaMancha goat registered as "Joppa's Friendship Chase."
Yes that breed has no ears.
Yes, it takes some getting used to.
But now I think of her a lot like E.T.
And last week I could well imagine her saying "Chase phone home?"
Our generous friends VOLUNTEERED to take Chase to their farm to keep her milked while we were gone. They have velvety Jersey cows and don't quite "get" milking for fun. But they also have a gorgeous daughter who loves Chase. (That farm girl is also a ballerina/pony rider who loves high fashion and wears it everywhere. I know she'll be National Dairy Princess one year!)
So Chase went to camp while we went on vacation.
It was very hard to walk away from her sweet face and calls.
But I knew she was in expert, loving hands.
And had adorable new friends n neighbors.
I told you Bert n Wilma would be our test goats...
WE LOVE GOATS!
Especially milk goats!
Chase came from a super nice lady who was finding her a quieter life after Chase had recovered from parasites that left her spine damaged.
Chase is fine but walks with a little limp.
Only a real problem in the show ring. I understand that Chase did very well showing prior to this episode.
And I know she left behind many new friends
