Pixie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Pixie
Age: One year old
Gender: Female
Kind: Goat
Home: Placerville, California, USA
   Pixie is a mutt goat I bought from a farmer with her half sister Daisy. She loves walking on this wooden plank we built for them. We originally bought the pair as lawnmowers but fell in love with their personalities. Pixie is more outgoing then her sister. She follows me around trying to get me with her horns playfully. They like my three dogs and play chasing games with them as well. It is fun to just go sit out there and have them come nuzzle you. This picture was taken when she was about six or seven weeks old. Her favorite food is oak leaves and she likes to "meh" a lot when we do yard work. We also have two other goats besides this pair. They are floppy eared. For a short period of time they adopted a baby deer who would lay out in the field with them. The doe was using them as a baby-sitting service. Sometimes if you can't see the faces of the goats they look like deer and my dad makes fun of our goats by calling them deer and dogs since the floppy eared ones do look a bit doggish. Pixie is very special.
