Nickki, the Pet of the Day
Name: Nickki
Age: Unknown
Gender: Female
Kind: Pygmy Goat
Home: Maryland, USA
   This is Nickki, one of our first goats! We had always wanted another goat after our previous goat, Chocolate, passed away. It was March 31, 1998, right before our 11th birthday party! It was an early present!! Our pap drove into the driveway with two goats on the back! One was my twin sister's and the other was mine, but we decided to share them! I named mine Nickki and she named hers Twister! They were supposedly sisters but we couldn't see the resemblance! Twister was as cranky as Nickki was the angel! Little did we know that the two were heavy with kid!

    Nickki gave birth to a son named Buddy! Nickki had always been kind and loving, but she wasn't the motherly type when Buddy was born but after a few weeks she got the hang of it! Which is good because two years later, we bought a male goat and five months after that we walked down to the barn to find twins laying near Nickki!

    Nickki has been one of the nicest goats we've ever had! We now have a herd of six and we couldn't imagine it without the goat that started it all! Each day we are greeted with her bleat and our lives wouldn't be the same without her!
